A Carbon-Neutral Future Awaits
At Honda, we’ve always been committed to preserving the environment for future generations. Today, we continue to innovate our way toward a 100% zero-emission car lineup in North America by 2040. And, with our Triple Zero approach, we aim to achieve carbon neutrality, resource circulation, and clean energy goals across our business operations by 2050.
Investments That Move Us Forward
Our path to all-electric, zero-emission cars begins by building hybrids at an affordable price close to home. That’s why we’ve invested nearly $1.4 billion in upgrading our award-winning manufacturing plants in Alliston, Ontario. This allows us to introduce new technology, train talented people, and retool the manufacturing systems that will facilitate hybrid output and help us transition to large-scale EV production.
History in the Making

Fusion Energy Is Just Around the Corner
We believe the world is on the brink of a major breakthrough in fusion energy technology – one that promises to yield affordable, stable, and clean energy – which is why we’re continuing to search for and invest in promising companies through our global open innovation program.
A Powerful Partnership
As we continue on our quest to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we’re happy to announce that through our partnership with LG Energy Solution we’re building a multi-billion dollar lithium-ion battery manufacturing facility in Ohio that will supply Honda auto plants with all the battery power they need for EV manufacturing in North America.
Developing Alternative Energy Sources
Through extensive research and development, Honda is consistently pushing to find better alternatives to fossil fuels.
The Next-Gen Ultium Battery
Scheduled to be introduced in 2027, Honda is collaborating with General Motors to co-develop a series of affordable electric vehicles based on a new global architecture using next-generation Ultium battery technology. When all is said and done there will be a total of 30 Honda EV models introduced globally.
Harnessing the Power of CO2
We are developing technologies to capture CO2 from the atmosphere and convert it into carbon-neutral fuels. For instance, our Honda DREAMO system creates microalgae that can capture CO2 and transform it into food, biofuel, or a bioplastic.
Exploring Hydrogen Solutions
Working toward the realization of a carbon-neutral society, we continue to expand the possibilities of hydrogen energy by developing fuel cell systems for various applications. This includes marina products, commercial trucks, stationary backup power, and circulative renewable energy technologies for space.
The Hybrid to Electric Vehicle Transition
The transition to full EVs is on the horizon. In the meantime, Honda is focused on reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions today by introducing hybrid trims for Civic, Accord, and CR-V models. All while simultaneously transitioning to fully-electric vehicles, beginning with the Honda Prologue, a Honda EV that promises zero emissions and endless adventures.See Morearrow_drop_up
Acura’s Ascension to Electrification

We want Blue Skies for Our Children. It’s our vision that future generations experience the joy and freedom of mobility while living in a sustainable society – a vision that drives us to strive to reduce our environmental impact with Honda’s wide breadth of green initiatives.
Making a Splash
Cleaner & quieter on the water.
Since 1964, Honda has built only four-stroke outboard motors, which are up to 90% cleaner and 50% more fuel-efficient than two-stroke engines.
A new era in efficient engines.
Our CVCC engine, launched in 1974, allowed us to meet strict emissions standards without the use of a catalytic converter.
Zero to Hero
Minimizing manufacturing impact.
Our Alliston, Ontario manufacturing facility has aimed to achieve zero waste-to-landfill targets since 2007.
Setting the pace for the climate.
Honda Canada and the Honda Canada Foundation have donated more than $2 million to organizations that focus on conservation.
Driven by a desire to support our dealerships in their efforts to be more environmentally conscious, Honda is proud to introduce the Honda Canada Green Dealer Recognition Program. It’s another important step on the road to Blue Skies for our Children.Take a Lookarrow_drop_up

At our Canadian headquarters, we seek to optimize daylight and outdoor views for our employees.
Evolving the office
When building our new headquarters in Markham, our goal was to make it the most environmentally-friendly building in the automotive industry. With LEED® Gold Certification criteria as our compass, design decisions were made with environmental sustainability in mind.
Features like a heat-reflective roof to help us stay cool, bioswales for natural filtration that help keep waste out of the sewer system, and irrigation techniques that collect rain to water the grounds help reduce our environmental impact.
Smaller carbon footprint
Honda's office uses up to 33% less energy than typical office buildings its size.
Nearly all our waste was diverted from landfills in 2022.
Honda’s green initiatives deliver 89% less water use than typical, same-sized offices.
A Greener Future
Honda and the Honda Canada Foundation are committed to supporting a greener future. We partner with charities that bring environmental education to classrooms across Canada. By teaching communities about conservation we’re helping create blue skies for our children.Dig Inarrow_drop_up
