The report covers energy, emissions, waste reduction and other areas that drive long-term sustainability.

Reducing energy used and emissions output in its plants, operations and products is important to customers and stakeholders, GM says in the report. The company's overall sustainability strategy creates value for customers through new technologies and lower operating costs and improves the bottom line through revenue generation, cost savings and risk mitigation.

"Sustainability is not only a key part of how GM is shifting from a good to great company, it is about the leadership and innovation that can transform the auto industry," said GM Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson. "Our long-term approach to sustainability enables us to increase efficiency and reimagine personal mobility to best meet customer needs and lifestyles."

GM developed the following commitments to meet customer needs for efficient vehicles and significantly reduce the environmental impact of its products:

GM bases its sustainability priorities on an assessment of the most pressing global economic, environmental and social issues facing the company's customers and the communities where GM does business. Both internal and external stakeholders identified product efficiency and energy and emissions management of manufacturing operations among the most important for the company.
