At Warsaw Buick GMC we would like to congratulate GM on receiving an award from the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable. GM announced its award on Sept. 16, which it received for successful efforts to reduce pollution.
GM’s Toledo, Ohio Plant was recognized for its ability to reduce its impact on the environment. According to GM, this plant specifically produces automatic transmissions for an array of GM trucks, cars, and SUVs. Astonishingly, the GM Toledo Plant was able to reduce energy concentration by 30% and wastewater discharges by 60%. The energy reduction prevented over 38,425 metric tons of CO2 from entering our atmosphere.
“This award is a celebration of various plant sustainability initiatives, from landfill-free to our ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry distinction,” said Joyce Arakelian, a senior environmental engineer at the facility. “Our Drive-to-Zero program helps conserve our resources and enables employees to see the simple and real benefits of energy reduction.”
GM’s Toledo, Ohio Plant is just one example of the many ways in which GM is trying to reduce its carbon footprint. We here at Warsaw Buick GMC think that effort deserves some recognition.
