Having achieved that goal, the new number is set out in the company’s 2011 Environmental Annual Report and also refers back to 2000 levels.

To help brand this new initiative Honda will once again use the “Blue Skies for Our Children” slogan, which was used by the automaker’s engineers back in the 1970s after strict new emissions regulations were first introduce in the U.S. Clean Air Act.
