Back on Nov. 18, 2010, Chevrolet set a bold goal – engage communities across America in preventing 8M metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the earth’s atmosphere. We knew it would take about five years and upwards of about $40 million, but driving a cleaner energy future is something we believe in.
