Chevrolet Carbon-Reduction Initiative

Chevrolet has committed to invest up to $40M on carbon-reducting projects across America--from biomass to wind turbines. It set its carbon-reduction goal based on the estimated emissions in 2011 from driving the 1.9 million vehicles it sold in the United States between Nov. 18, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2011.
