Honda Named Greenest Automaker By U.S. Web Site

American Honda has once again been recognised for its environmental initiatives, being named in the 2010 list for Corporate Leaders and Sustainability by Greenopia in the U.S.

Honda was named as the greenest car manufacturer in the annual assessment.

Greenopia, a local green community where consumers can browse listings for different industry categories, said Honda “…led the way for mainstream hybrids when it released the Honda Insight back in 1999…” and has “…one of the best overall scores and the best average fleet mileage of any car company with 10 or more models…”.

It also praised the variety of alternative fuel vehicles – including hybrids – Honda has on the market in the U.S., such as the Civic GX natural gas vehicle and the FCX Clarity, the zero-emissions hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.

The Corporate Leaders and Sustainability list assesses companies on five criteria: green building design, supply chain, sustainability report, recycling and stock.

Greenopia currently has consumer guides for people living in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.
