|Subaru of America is extremely aware of its role and responsibility to the environment. Manufacturing green, environmentally conscious vehicles is only a small part of what Subaru is actively doing to try and reduce its ecological footprint. |
The Subaru Zero Landfill Plant
In 2004, our Subaru of Indiana manufacturing plant became the first automotive assembly facility to produce zero landfill waste. All waste produced by the plant is recycled or turned into electricity. To put it into perspective, a single-family home produces more waste in a day than our SIA plant does in one full year.
National Wildlife Habitat
In 2003, Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. became the first automotive assembly facility to be designated as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Over 800 acre serve as a home for birds and animals, including white-tail deer, blue heron, red-tail hawks, Canadian geese, mallard ducks, beavers, snapping turtles, coyotes and the bald eagle.
Subaru is dedicated to preserving the environment and the wildlife that relies on it for a home. We do everything we can to make sure that we are providing ample protection.
Partial-Zero Emission Vehicles
Since 2003, Subaru has offered certified Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV). The Legacy, Outback and Forester models all meet the PZEV requirements and are available for sale anywhere in the United States. The Subaru Partial Zero Emissions Vehicles meet California's Super-Ultra-Low-Emission vehicle exhaust emission standard. Our PZEV gasoline Subarus can have even lower emissions than hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles.
If we could paint every Subaru green, we would! Instead we will just keep doing our part to make the world greener.
