Description/achievement of initiative
GM commits to achieve landfill-free status at 100 manufacturing sites and 25 nonmanufacturing sites.
Waste reduction is a key component of GM's aggressive sustainability strategy. GM facilities started tracking reductions in waste 15 years ago to identify the materials being generated, reused and recycled, and reveal areas for improvement. This information was used to establish specific plant goals and metrics, which paved the way for this commitment.
