GM Targets Zero Emissions by 2035
Feb. 3, 2021—General Motors “aspires” to have all its new light-duty vehicles be zero emission by 2035, the Detroit Free Press reported.
GM officials wouldn’t commit to saying all its vehicles will be zero emissions by the end of that timeline, but said it is taking action to meet that goal. It also targets 2040 for its global products and plants to be carbon neutral.
“'Aspire' is a great word because it helps us work toward our vision," Dane Parker, GM's chief sustainability officer, told the publication. "We're taking action to have our vehicles be zero emissions by 2035. This is going to take the effort of a lot of people and a lot of governments to get there. So we have a vision, we have a plan and we're taking action today to get there."
