SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded a Performance Track Environmental Performance Award to Denso Manufacturing Michigan (DMMI). The award recognizes National Environmental Performance Track members who have demonstrated exemplary environmental performance during their participation in the program.

“EPA’s Performance Track partners are ready, willing, and able to go well beyond mandated requirements - proving that doing what’s good for the environment is also good for the bottom line,” said Stephen Johnson, EPA administrator.

Members typically set four public, measurable goals to improve air, water, and land quality. DMMI’s efforts included: generating nearly 1,780 fewer tons of solid waste in 2005 than it did in 2003; eliminating the use of hexavalent chromium through process enhancements; reducing per-unit emissions by 6 percent; and reducing water consumption by 14.5 million gallons through process improvements.

“DMMI is very honored to receive the Environmental Performance Award,” said Junichi Soh, DMMI president.
