The U.S. Department of Energy has issued the Better Plants Challenge in a bid to improve energy efficiency. General Motors has accepted the challenge and will attempt to reduce the energy intensity of its American manufacturing plants and facilities by 25 percent in 10 years.

The Better Plants Challenge is a component of the Better Buildings Challenge, a national leadership initiative launched by President Obama in 2011 with the 10-year goal of making American commercial and industrial buildings more energy-efficient. The Better Plants Challenge involves a select group of manufacturers that make additional commitments to openly share their energy performance data and market-leading energy efficiency strategies for the betterment of all involved.
