GREEN MANUFACTURING

 

ConForm Automotive is committed to providing a healthy and safe workplace for our associates and to conduct our business in an environmentally responsible manner. Management of environmental protection is an integral aspect of our business operations and a responsibility of all managers in our facilities.

Our day-to-day operations tell a great environmental story. Each year, we recycle 12 million pounds of PET resin, the same kind of plastic commonly used for drink bottles.

We recycle the equivalent of
100 million 2-liter bottles
each year

 

Converting this large volume of recycled material into highly functional and attractive products is a significant contribution to protecting the environment we all share.

Imagine the Journey:

The empty soda bottle left over from your lunch goes to a local collection center where it is crushed and baled before heading to a recycler where it is chopped into flakes, then washed and dried.

The plastic continues on to ConForm, where it is converted into polyester staple fiber, then takes shape as nonwoven fabric and is shipped to automotive OEM’s and converters.

Our Maine and Ohio plants are certified ISO 14001, a globally recognized standard for environmental management systems.

ISO 14001 requires that a facility undergo a rigorous internal process to develop, implement, and maintain an environmental management system.
The focus and discipline of third-party certification to the Environmental Management System is the right thing for our community, employees and our business.

Certification substantiates our commitment to the environment, but it also affirms our ongoing program to continually improve performance.
