GM Going Green and Clean

December 24, 2009

The holiday season tends to generate a lot of waste. Excess wrapping, packaging, and even leftover food abound. But there’s one place—or 55 places, to be exact—where trash is nowhere to be found, both during the holidays and all year round.

General Motors is working toward becoming landfill-free, and right now 55 GM plants have officially achieved that goal. By re-thinking the manufacturing process, and finding new ways to re-use scrap and waste that would normally be thrown out, the company not only saves, but saves natural resources, as well.

“At these plants, more than 95 percent of waste is recycled or reused,” said Mike Robinson, vice president of Environment, Energy and Safety Policy. “The remainder is converted to energy. “ GM’s goal is to have 50 percent of the company’s manufacturing facilities be officially landfill-free by the end of 2010.

What does that mean for drivers? Well, here at our Cathedral City GM dealership, the fuel efficient cars we already sell now come with added peace of mind. And smarter manufacturing also means lower production costs, and those savings are passed on to consumers.
