Honda now has eight plants that are leading the pack in energy efficiency within the American market. Four of the brand’s mass production auto plants, two transmission plants, and two engine plants have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR Certificate for Outstanding Energy Efficiency.
These awards are helping highlight the Honda brand’s commitment to reducing CO2 emissions with practices that are environmentally friendly. Honda is the only carmaker that’s received this EPA distinction at all of its U.S.-based mass production auto plants.
The EPA began awarding the prestigious distinction in 2006. The Honda Marysville Auto Plant and East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio received the award for the 15th year in a row, while Honda Manufacturing of Indiana received it for the ninth consecutive year. Honda Manufacturing of Alabama received it for the fourth time, while the engine plant there was recognized for the second time.
The Anna, Ohio engine plant also received its third award, while the Honda Transmission Manufacturing plant in Russells Point, Ohio, earned its second. The Honda Precision Parts of Georgia won the award for the first time.
Honda has reduced its CO2 emissions in North America by 27.5 percent since 2010 in a number of ways, from reducing water waste and energy use to cutting down on waste and emissions.
