LANSING — Flint Assembly and Flint Metal Center were among seven General Motors facilities recognized by the State of Michigan last week for ongoing efforts to improve the environment and quality of life in their communities.
Nearly half of GM’s Michigan manufacturing plants received Neighborhood Environmental Partner awards from the state’s Department of Environmental Quality for individual sustainability efforts and environmental programs. GM leads all manufacturers in Neighborhood Environmental Partner awards with 44, more than a third of all Neighborhood Environmental Partner awards since the program began in 2005.
“We appreciate GM’s continued willingness to go above and beyond to conserve energy, recycle and reduce waste, and help preserve Michigan’s air, land and water resources,” said Department of Environmental Quality Director Dan Wyant. “These voluntary efforts are great examples of environmental stewardship.”
Other recognized plants were Lansing Delta Township, Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly, Orion Assembly, Warren Transmission and Romulus Powertrain Operations.
These sites reduce their environmental impact through energy efficiency, resource preservation and waste reduction throughout their communities. For example:
