Three of Honda’s manufacturing plants were recently awarded with EPA ENERGY STAR® certification. Two plants in Ohio received the award for the sixth year, while Honda Manufacturing of Indiana LLC earned the distinction for the first time.
The ENERGY STAR certification is given to auto assembly plants that rank in the country’s list of the top 25 plants with efficient energy performance. The Environmental Protection Agency evaluates factors including vehicle size and production output.
The two assembly plants in Marysville and East Liberty, Ohio continue to increase their efficient use of energy by implementing improvements in the facilities’ lighting, equipment, and auto-body painting technologies.
Not far from us, Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, the automaker’s newest U.S. plant, had previously added a second shift that helped to increase the plant’s overall efficiency.
“Improving the energy efficiency of Honda manufacturing operations continues to be a big focus of the company’s efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our operations,” said Karen Heyob, leader of Honda’s North American environmental sustainability initiatives. “We set challenging targets for improving energy efficiency at our facilities, and count on every Honda associate’s involvement in operating our plants efficiently, and to find and implement energy efficiency improvement opportunities.”
Once again, Honda’s hard work has paid off; and we at Basney Honda couldn’t be more proud of their dedication to build quality vehicles with efficiency.
