Delphi is the First Automotive Company in the UK to Receive Prestigious Award for Reducing Carbon Footprint


London, UK — Delphi Automotive LLP was recently awarded the Carbon Trust Standard, which recognizes the significant actions taken by the company’s UK operations to reduce its total carbon footprint year-over-year by 4%, and reduced CO2 per piece output by 8.8%.

The Carbon Trust Standard is a UK Government certification that recognizes achievements in carbon management and reduction. Recipients of this prestigious award number less than 100 in the entire UK with only a handful of those being manufacturing-based companies. Delphi is the first automotive company to achieve this standard.

“We are very proud to be the first automotive company in the UK to be accredited with this prestigious standard” said Mark Andrews, Operations Support Group (OSG) Director for Delphi Europe, Middle-East and Africa. “This is further validation of Delphi’s ability to apply its safe, green and connected philosophies not only to the products we sell but also to the facilities in which they are designed and manufactured.”

Led by Peter Vallance from Delphi’s OSG, this project involved a team of UK facility management personnel at Delphi sites in Gillingham, Stonehouse, Liverpool, Park Royal, Leamington Spa and Sudbury.

The Carbon Trust Standard recognises organisations that have genuinely acted on climate change and committed to ongoing emission reductions. The Standard also positions Delphi at the forefront of tackling climate change and related measures to reduce carbon emissions directly, rather than off-setting emissions through other means.

Some of the projects that have enabled Delphi to receive the Carbon Trust Standard are:

* Sudbury automated workplace shut off device
* Leamington and Gillingham Lighting projects
* Liverpool — HVAC (heating ventilation air conditioning modules) variable speed drives
* Stonehouse lighting, machine cooling and general awareness improvements

The total carbon reduction for all projects was 2,000,000 kilograms over a 2-year assessment period (January 2006 to December 2008).

As a responsible corporate citizen, Delphi is dedicated to protecting human health, natural resources and the global environment and will continue to seek to proactively minimize the environmental impact of its manufacturing processes through the implementation of innovative solutions.
