The campaign is organised by sustainable business advocacy group Ceres and its Business

GM's participation was announced at the Ceres Conference in San Francisco.Signers of the declaration are calling for policymakers to address climate change by promoting clean energy, boosting efficiency and limiting carbon emissions - strategies GM employs within its operations as it seeks to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing.

"We want to be a change agent in the auto industry," said Mike Robinson, GM Vice-President of Sustainability and Global Regulatory Affairs. "As our world faces issues like congestion and climate change, we are at the forefront in transforming the way we move, from building moreefficient vehicles to partnering with car-sharing startup Relay Rides."
