General Motors has met the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star Challenge for Industry by reducing energy intensity by an average of 23 percent at 31 plants – 22 of which are repeat achievers. Collectively they avoided more than 374,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases – the equivalent of electricity use by 56,049 homes in the United States annually.
