General Motors has cut CO2 emissions by 1.4 million tons from 2000-2003 and has become the first participant in the U.S. EPA's "Climate Leaders" program to reach its voluntary goal – two years early. The reduction of CO2 discharge is equal to the annual emissions from power used by 169,000 U.S. households. GM facilities have moved from using coal to natural gas and/or methane gas from landfills and by shutting down paint shop operations on the weekends and holidays.
