Greenest Automaker Title Goes to Honda

By: Lauren Woods

The 2007 Greenest Automaker title has been given by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) to the Honda Motor Company and such a title has been bestowed to the car maker for the fourth time.

The latter is currently considered to the car company in the US which is fuel efficient. And the title is actually given out by the UCS every two years and the UCS decides which company rightfully deserves to take home the title after considering which car makers has vehicles in their US fleet which has the least number of overall production of emissions that forms smogs as well as emissions that affect global warming.

Don MacKenzie is a UCS vehicle engineer and he backs up the group's decision by saying, "Honda remains the greenest U.S. automaker. The company installs clean technology across its entire fleet of cars and trucks and that consistency makes it a top environmental performer. Honda is one of only two automakers to have better-than-average global warming scores in every class of vehicles it sold in MY2005. In addition, Honda continues to have the best smog score in four out of the five classes."

Of course, we all do know that Honda is one of the leaders when it comes to looking deeper into new technologies that could help alleviate the further destruction of our environment. And with all the new technologies that they are able to create, they are also able to create practical applications that would help out improve a vehicle's fuel efficiency. Honda's vehicles are also created so that it can be used with a system that could even further enhance the performance of Honda's green vehicles.

Honda is also one of the leaders when it comes to creating vehicles that lessen greenhouse gas emissions which are quite harmful to the environment. They are also one of the car manufacturers working on alternative fuels that could replace current gasoline fuel.

John Mendel is the company's executive vice president for its US arm and he affirms, "We are proud to be recognized as a leader, and will continue to challenge ourselves to improve the environmental performance of our company and our products." He does even further add, "We have entered a period in history where society is more critically aware of how the actions we take today determine the course of our environmental future for generations to come. We accept this as our challenge."
