Environment & Energy

Global Automakers' members support the long-term goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and are aggressively pursuing innovative ways to protect the environment and lessen the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels. Our members are reducing petroleum consumption by investing in advanced-technology vehicles powered by more efficient gasoline engines, hydrogen fuel cells, and electricity. We advance our members’ environmental goals by working with stakeholders to create environmental policies that promote cleaner, greener, and more advanced technologies while continuing to provide consumers with a full range of vehicle choices.

Fuel Economy & Greenhouse Gases

Our members are engaged in research and development of a full range of
advanced technologies for vehicles to meet government targets for fuel
economy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Continuing to develop the most
fuel-efficient internal combustion engines is a top priority.
