GM, WEC Report On Green Supply ChainProject
General Motors Corporation has seen “significant” energy efficiency, environmental and water conservation improvements in a demonstration project involving eight suppliers to the company’s manufacturing venture in China. GM and its suppliers worked through a WEC project over the past two years to improve their competitiveness and sustainability performance, while generating cost savings.
The WEC hasn’t released a lot of results at this point, just that the companies are:
• Eliminating or reducing electric lighting by installing transparent roofing and walls, dimmer switches and lower wattage lighting.
• Eliminating leaks in air and water systems.
• Increasing the use of wind-powered utilities.
• Saving over 40 million gallons of water.
• Reducing CO2 emissions.
• Accumulating net financial savings.
