SUSTAINABILITY

BE RESPONSIBLE
BE VISIONARY
BE ICONIC

At Cadillac, the future is not some far off day. It’s next year. It’s next month. It’s tomorrow. We must look for opportunities to continue creating a sustainable future, from product design and engineering to manufacturing processes and facility operations. We owe it to our current and future owners everywhere. 

100%

RENEWABLE ENERGY IN U.S. OPERATIONS BY 2025 (GLOBAL BY 2035)

100%

OF NEW CADILLAC MODELS INTRODUCED IN THE U.S. TO BE ALL-ELECTRIC BY THE END OF THE DECADE

RENEWABLE ENERGY

POWERING OPERATIONS WITH WIND AND SOLAR

At GM, our goal is to source 100 percent renewable energy for U.S. operations by 2025 and to source 100 percent renewable energy for global operations by 2035.

SPRING HILL MANUFACTURING 

GM’s largest facility in North America, Spring Hill Manufacturing, is expected to rely 100 percent on solar energy by the end of 2023. This facility produces Cadillac models* like the all-electric LYRIQ* and the internal combustion engine XT5 and XT6 models.

ARLINGTON ASSEMBLY

In Texas, GM’s Arlington Assembly has been powered by 100 percent renewable wind energy since late 2018. The facility produces Escalade models.*

LANSING GRAND RIVER ASSEMBLY

GM’s Michigan facility produces the internal combustion engine CT4 and CT5 models* and will use a portion of solar energy generated with technology from First Solar, Inc. The agreement sourced 180 megawatts, or roughly the yearly electricity use of ~ 47,882 U.S. homes.*

CIRCULAR APPROACH

MORE THAN 11 MILLION POUNDS OF RECYCLED MATERIALS

In 2022, GM and Cadillac vehicles have used more than 11 million pounds of recycled PET plastic in wheelhouse liners. PET plastic is commonly used to manufacture water bottles.

"Our industry is changing in fundamental ways, providing a great opportunity for Cadillac to define the next generations of American luxury. As we bring a new portfolio of vehicles to market—fully electric and software-defined—we must continue to rethink and reinvent design, engineering and manufacturing to maintain Cadillac as the standard of the world."

PRESERVING RESOURCES

BATTERY RECYCLING AND REUSE  

GM refurbishes, recycles or reuses 100% of the batteries returned to us. One of our recycling initiatives is a collaboration with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium and recyclers to advance lithium-ion battery recycling and reduce future reliance on mining.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES

PAVING THE WAY FOR ALL-ELECTRIC LUXURY

By the end of the decade, every new Cadillac model introduced in the U.S. will be all-electric.


Our electric portfolio began with the debut of LYRIQ, a fully electric crossover, and expanded with the subsequent introduction of all-electric ESCALADE IQ and CELESTIQ. By using the Ultium Battery Platform and supporting technologies, we’re positioning Cadillac to become a leader in electrification.
