Second GM Facility Receives ENERGY STAR Certification
June 19, 2012 - General Motors’ Lansing Customer Care and Aftersales parts distribution center, which Earth Force partners with in its GREEN program, reached landfill-free status and earned ENERGY STAR® certification for superior energy efficiency from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
“GM is committed to reducing its environmental footprint worldwide,” said Mike Robinson, GM vice president of sustainability and global regulatory policy. “This distribution center in Lansing is proof of our drive to be energy efficient and increase recycling throughout our operations.”
To qualify for ENERGY STAR certification, the plant had to perform in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meet strict energy performance levels set by the EPA from 2010 to 2011.
