East Liberty, Marysville plants earn 13th consecutive EPA ENERGY STAR honor



For the 13th consecutive year, two of Honda’s Ohio automobile manufacturing plants have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR certification, while Honda Manufacturing of Indiana achieved the designation for the seventh year in a row.

Joining this accomplished trio of Honda plants is a new certification for the Anna Engine Plant , which was able to reach 2018 ENERGY STAR status in the first year of EPA’s energy standards being set for engine plants.

EPA ENERGY STAR certification signifies the facilities perform in the top 25 percent of similar facilities for energy efficiency and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.

On average, ENERGY STAR certified plants consume 35 percent less energy and contribute 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar noncertified operations.

“Earning these certifications are important since it is a way to recognize Honda associates for their continued efforts to reduce energy usage at our manufacturing plants and office buildings,” said Joanna Bambeck, who leads Honda’s Green Factory efforts in North America. “This achievement also shows the progress that our plants are making towards realizing a carbon-free society and achieving our 2050 (carbon dioxide) targets.”
