Sustainable Evolution of the Auto Industry
Name: ___________________________ AM / PM
Historically, the automotive manufacturing industry has not focused on sustainable practices. Traditional
assembly-line manufacturing processes – many still in use today – use huge amounts of energy, metals,
plastics, toxins, and manpower; all leaving behind a massive carbon footprint.
On top of that, once vehicles are produced, most require fossil fuels to operate, which subsequently releases
harmful emissions. The entire process has a vast environmental impact.. However, the auto industry and
automotive repair shops participate in many recycling programs that are greatly adding to the health of the
planet. This project challenges you to explore three topics:
1. How you feel about sustainability
2. How the automotive industry practices sustainability
3. Local recycling companies you can use as you embark on your automotive career
