Our vision is a future with zero emissions to help create a more sustainable planet.

GM plans to:

Become carbon neutral in global products and operations by 2040.

Achieve approved Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) targets for operations and products.

Meet our commitments under the Business Ambition Pledge for 1.5°C, an urgent call to action from a global coalition of United Nations agencies, businesses and industry leaders.

Work with federal, state and local governments for implementation of supportive policies to move the United States closer to carbon neutrality consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Collaborate with suppliers to set ambitious targets for the supply chain to reduce emissions, increase transparency and source more sustainable materials.

SCOPE 3—Use of Sold Products1

Strategic Plans

  • Take action to reach 1M+ planned units of EV capacity in each of North America and China by 2025.
  • Plan to achieve sales of 40% to 50% of annual U.S. volumes of EVs by 2030.
  • Plan to eliminate tailpipe emissions from new light-duty vehicles by 2035.

SCOPE 3—Purchased Services and Supply Chain2

Strategic Plans

  • Inviting our Tier I suppliers to sign the GM ESG Partnership Pledge to show their commitment to the principles of sustainability and human rights.
  • Monitor our suppliers' environmental and social progress through CDP and EcoVadis.
  • Leverage the GM Partner Sustainability Framework for suppliers to set goals.

SCOPE 1 & 2

Strategic Plans

  • Plan to source 100% renewable electricity at sites in the United States by 2025 and globally by 2035.
  • Target a reduction in operational energy intensity by 35% by 2035 against a 2010 baseline.
  1. Aligned with the SBTi for Scope 3, use of sold products. The SBTi standards require well-to-wheel (from fuel production to vehicle driving) for vehicle CO2 intensity (gCO2/km) calculations. We have revised our numbers for 2018 through 2020 for this requirement. Going forward, GM will use the SBTi standards in calculating vehicle CO2 intensity.
  2. Includes other Scope 3 categories.
