General Motors has been bestowed yet another green accolade. The automaker has been named to the “Climate A” List by the CDP, CDP, a global nonprofit committed to sustainable economies, which represent global leaders in climate change for the good.
Just nine percent of companies, of tens of thousands that participate in the CDP program, are named to the Climate A List.
“We congratulate the 193 A List companies that are leading the charge towards our low-carbon future,” said CDP CEO Paul Simpson. “Companies are key actors in enabling the global economy to achieve its new climate goals, and the leadership of this group points the way for others to take bold action and capitalize on the many opportunities that await.”
GM has made strides towards becoming a greener automaker. It saved $73 million from energy efficient initiatives this year alone, and plans to be completely powered by renewable energy by the year 2050.
