Honda has long been recognized as a leader in innovative technologies designed to reduce the environmental impact of its products. With imporoved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, our engines are no exception.
Ever since the introduction of our first outboard in 1964, Honda has pioneered the development and production of 4-stroke outboard engines with low impact on the environment. Our vision is based on the philosophy of our founder that "Watercraft should not pollute the waters they ply."
Honda Marine believes that ultra-low emission levels are essential to the protection of our global waterways. Honda Marine's full line of current production models meets rigorous California Air Resources Board (CARB) 3-Star standards, ensuring their availability and regulatory compliance in all 50 states. Honda's full line of 4-stroke outboards meets the latest emissions standards put forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Honda Marine is a proud partner with environmental organizations whose members work and volunteer to protect our planet’s natural resources. We salute the efforts of these organizations:

Living Lands aids in the protection, preservation and restoration of the natural environment of the nation's major rivers and their watersheds.
In 1997, Chad Pregracke (a commercial diver at the time) decided to clean up what he considers home – the Mississippi River. Leaving his full time job behind and garnering support along the way, Chad and a band of volunteers have cleaned up over 1200 miles of Mississippi River bank and have since added the Illinois and Ohio Rivers to their incredible mission. The team has collected over 7 million pounds of debris in that time.
