Inteva Honored with Green Supplier Recognition from Shanghai General Motors

Inteva Waigaoqiao Operations was recently recognized for their successful achievement of Shanghai General Motors Green Supplier Program. This recognition supports Inteva’s core value of we care for the world and our communities and the facility initiative allows for a significant decrease in total power consumption and carbon emissions from 2011 to 2012.

Founded in 1997, Shanghai General Motors (SGM) is a joint venture between General Motors Company and SAIC Motor that manufactures and sells Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, and Opel brand automobiles in mainland China. SGM began awarding suppliers with this yearly environmental recognition in 2008.

This program completion began with an initial invitation from SGM to participate. Nine additional steps proceeded including supplier evaluations, training, final supplier reports and award recognitions.

“Shanghai General Motors carries out this program every year, and we will try our best to continue to find energy savings at our facility” said Frank. “Electrical power is limited, savings are limitless. Many companies must be shut down or change their production plant because of the limit of power during the summer. Some companies will get more electrical power on the basis of electrical power savings.”  
The facility decreased their total power consumption by 8%, a number that will allow them more electrical power in the summer months. They also reduced their carbon emissions 74 tons from 2011 to 2012.
