Enabling future generations to experience the joy and freedom of mobility within a sustainable society. This is the essence of our environmental vision, and it’s represented by our theme, “Blue Skies for Our Children.” Honda engineers first expressed these words as they took on the challenge of meeting the stringent exhaust emissions standards of the 1970 U.S. Clean Air Act. Since then, our vision has led to countless innovations in sustainable mobility, including a line of hybrid vehicles, a natural-gas vehicle, a fuel-cell electric vehicle and other energy creation and distribution technologies.
From development to disposal: reducing the environmental impact of our products.
- Use fewer substances that are potentially harmful to the environment
- Manufacture with fewer scarce or non-recyclable materials
- Build easy-to-dismantle products to facilitate the recycling of materials
Overall, the consumption of non-renewable fossil fuels and the byproducts of fuel combustion create our largest impact on the environment. This is why fuel efficiency is at the core of our design process.
