"Green" Factory

Lansing Delta Township Assembly is a LEED gold-certified automobile plant, and the only automotive manufacturing facility in the world to receive any level of LEED certification. [2]

Environmental features of the factory include:

  • a 45% reduction in non-manufacturing water use, saving over 4 million gallons of water a year.
  • a roof drain system which catches rain water and diverts to cisterns stored above the factory's restrooms, which is then used to flush toilets.
  • having 25% of the plant's construction materials composed of recycled materials.
  • leaving 50% of the site undeveloped
  • a 20% reduction in energy used for lighting the plant by lowering overall lighting in areas such as aisles.
  • the elimination of ozone-depleting substances used in any of the building’s heating and cooling, refrigeration, and fire suppression systems.

The factory grounds also contain a 75-acre (300,000 m2) wildlife area managed by the factory's Wildlife Habitat Team, who also hosts wildlife educational events for local community groups and schools.
