As the industry leader in environmental stewardship, SIA strives to expand its efforts through education, mentoring and community outreach. To further encourage and promote environmental initiatives in our community, SIA will present awards to the individual, non-profit organization and school that have developed and executed the best environmental stewardship program throughout the year.

“Being good stewards of the environment goes beyond our backyard”, said Tom Easterday, SIA’s Senior Vice President, “the more we can encourage others to engage in positive and innovative environmental practices, the less impact we will all have on our environment. That’s the basic concept behind the Subaru Excellence in Environmental Stewardship Award.”

“It all starts with one idea or one initiative and it just explodes from there ”, states Jennifer McGarvey, SIA’s Group Leader of Corporate Communications, “If we can be the catalyst for other individuals and organizations to make that first step, then we’ve accomplished the goal of these awards”.

On May 4, 2004, SIA became the first US Auto Assembly Plant to achieve zero landfill status. Through plant-wide efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle, SIA is able to eliminate the need to send waste to a landfill. In addition, since 2000 SIA has reduced its waste generated by nearly 50%, resulting in millions of dollars in cost savings through its environmental programs. SIA’s entire 832-acre site has also been designated a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
