LP Automotive – London, Ontario, Canada
The Eco Initiative Team set the following goals for 2015:
Reduce electrical usage throughout the plant by 3% compared to 2014 based on units/sales dollar.
- This will be accomplished by shutting down all unnecessary machines when they are not being operated. Supervisors have been trained, and this will be tasked to them.
Reduce gas usage by 3% compared to 2014 based on units/sales dollar.
- This will be accomplished by making more efficient use of ovens and continuing to pursue alternate means of stress relief to machines.
Eliminate the use of Varsol and Mineral Spirits for cleaning by 2016.
- This will be accomplished by finding an alternative that is more environmentally and operator friendly.
LP Automotive has donated financially to the Salthaven – Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center, and to Scoutrees (Boy Scouts) to help plant trees. Additionally, the facility participated in a shoe drive alongside the Schukra facility for Soles 4 Souls, an organization that helps recycle shoes to developing countries in need.
