Responsible Manufacturing
Responsible Manufacturing

To ensure Chevrolet stays on the right path, our engineers work with suppliers to increase the use of responsible components so that our vehicles contain a variety of recycled material – things like old pop bottles, cardboard, blue jeans, nylon carpet and recycled tires and bumpers. We’re also exploring opportunities to use recycled products from our own manufacturing facilities so that perfectly good, workable material makes its way back into our vehicles, instead of wasting away in a landfill.

Renewable Resources
Renewable Resources

When designing new vehicles, we do our best to use renewable resources whenever possible. We’re also making use of some renewable natural fibres in vehicle parts to make our cars and trucks more sustainable. Right now, we’re using wood from balsa trees – which can grow as much as 3 metres in 6 months – in the floor panel of the Chevrolet Corvette, and kenaf fibres (from the hibiscus family) in the headliner of some vehicles.

New Life for Old Vehicles

We’re working to make sure that when a Chevrolet reaches the end of its useful life for an owner, it can still be environmentally responsible. To help make this happen, we’re designing our vehicles to be as recyclable and as recoverable as possible. Aside from following industry ISO standards, we’ve developed a global set of recycling and recoverability standards to make certain that, around the world, we’re doing our very best. As a result, today’s Chevrolets are at least 85% recyclable and 95% recoverable.

Thinking tomorrow. Doing today.
Thinking tomorrow. Doing today.

We’re dedicated to seeking out the most responsible and beneficial innovations for tomorrow’s world – but never at the expense of today. The Chevrolets on the road right now are among the most fuel efficient vehicles you’ll find anywhere. With engine management systems like Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management, as well as exciting developments in flexfuels, hydrogen fuel cells, hybrid and electric technologies, Chevrolet is taking an industry-leading role when it comes to maximizing fuel efficiency and minimizing tailpipe emissions.
