The American automaker General Motors is the latest big automaker to make a big carbon neutrality pledge, announcing a plan to become carbon neutral in its global products and operations by 2040.

Most of GM’s carbon neutrality plan will come from the production of all-electric vehicles. The company says it plans to have 30 all-electric models in production by 2025 and have 40% of its American cars be battery-electric by the same year.

As part of its plan, GM says that it’ll source 100% renewable energy to power its US sites by 2030 and global sites by 2035. The company says it’s already the 10th largest purchaser of renewable energy in the world.

GM has said that it’ll invest $27 billion in developing electric and autonomous vehicles from 2020 through 2025. The company apparently has its eyes set on a future that’ll see the increased adoption of electric vehicles.

“General Motors is joining governments and companies around the globe working to establish a safer, greener and better world,” GM CEO Mary Barra said in a press statement. “We encourage others to follow suit and make a significant impact on our industry and on the economy as a whole.”
