Honda issues North American Environmental Report

Honda released its third annual report on the company's environmental performance in North America, a report which emphasizes global warming and energy sustainability as two of the most critical environmental challenges the company is seeking to address.

The 2007 North American Environmental Report primarily covers the company?s operations during the period from April 1, 2006, to March 31, 2007 (FY 2007). The report looks at the environmental performance of Honda's automobile, power sports and power equipment products, its 14 major manufacturing plants in North America, and the corporate activities of 15 Honda group companies in the region.

Most basically, the report serves to document Honda's ongoing efforts to reduce the environmental footprint of its operations in North America, says Tetsuo Iwamura, COO of Honda?s North American Regional Operation. "North America plays an important role in contributing to our company's global initiative to advance its environmental performance."
