Hyundai strives to respond to ever-stricter environmental regulations around the world and the rapid growth of the market for eco-friendly vehicles. We are therefore minimizing the environmental impact of our cars by expediting the production and development of eco-friendly vehicles and by improving the fuel efficiency of our internal combustion engines. We are also reducing the amount of hazardous substances used in automotive parts, using more eco-friendly materials, and recycling waste resources.
Due to the characteristics of the automotive industry, automobile manufacturers use a great amount of energy and discharge high levels of greenhouse gas (GHG). With environmental regulations being enforced around the world, Hyundai is committed to ensuring that our eco-friendly production satisfies all global standards. We have established the Global Energy and Greenhouse Gas Management Center, and we are making a number of changes in our business, including using more solar energy and improving our hydrogen infrastructure.
