If you have a goal of supporting more environmentally friendly companies, then the next car you buy should be from General Motors. Not only is GM making some of the most fuel-efficient vehicles around — many of which you can find right here at Cecil Atkission GM in Kerrville, Texas — but it also earned recognition from the Environmental Protection Agency
2020 marks the ninth year in a row that GM has earned the EPA’s Energy Star® Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award, solidifying the company as a recognized leader in environmental sustainability.
“I salute the 2020 Energy Star® award winners,” said Anne Idsal, EPA principal deputy assistant administrator for air and radiation. “These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection.”
General Motors stakes its claim as a global leader in the push for more sustainable practices by making the changes it wants to see. In 2010, GM set out to cut carbon intensity in production 20 percent by 2020, and it achieved that goal a full three years ahead of schedule. GM now sets forth with the goal of using 100 percent renewable energy at facilities in the United States by 2030 and globally by 2040.
GM has also outlined its Zero Vision, calling for a future with zero emissions, zero crashes, and zero congestion. While the future looks bright, the present is looking mighty impressive as well, particularly when you get a load of all the great new vehicles available at Cecil Atkission GM.
