For the 12th consecutive year, Honda’s Marysville and East Liberty 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 sixth year in a row.

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 STARcertified plants consume 35 percent less energy and contribute 35 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than similar non-certified operations.

Furthering its legacy of environmental performance, Honda of America Manufacturing Inc.’s auto assembly plants in Marysville and East Liberty continued to find new and innovative ways to conserve energy in 2017. The 2.8-million square-foot East Liberty plant, which produces the Honda CR-V and the Acura RDX and MDX SUVs, continued the use of LED lighting — saving 1 million kWh of electricity — and ushered two more new high-efficiency 1350-ton chillers into service in 2017.
