Honda released its second annual report on the company’s environmental footprint in North America, with a special emphasis on global warming and energy sustainability as two of most critical environmental challenges facing society today. The 2006 North American Environmental report covers the company’s operations from April 1, 2005 to March 31, 2006 (FY 2006). The report looks at the environmental performance of the company’s automobile, power sports and power equipment products, and its 13 major manufacturing plants in North America. “We are pleased to provide this report on our ongoing efforts to reduce the environmental footprint of Honda’s North American operations,” said Koichi Kondo, chief operating officer of Honda’s North American Regional Operation. “Even as we continue to grow our North American sales, R&D and manufacturing capabilities, we are seeking ways to make a positive contribution to the environment through improvements to product and process efficiency, reductions in emissions, and the elimination of toxic substances and waste,” Mr. Kondo said. The 2006 North American Environmental Report is available for viewing and can be downloaded from the Environment section of Honda Canada’s corporate web site at www.honda.ca/HondaCorp/index.html?L=E.
