Governor praises 9 Hoosier companies for environmental leadership

Governor Mitch Daniels and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) today announced 9 new members to Indiana's Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP). The members were accepted into the program after agreeing to continuous environmental improvements and demonstrating long-term compliance with environmental laws.

"These 9 Hoosier businesses are models for others and proof positive that sound environmental management is simply good for business," said Daniels.

These businesses are ESP's newest members:

  1. BF Goodrich Tire Manufacturing (Woodburn, Allen County)
  2. Covanta Indianapolis, Inc. (Indianapolis, Marion County)
  3. Cummins Fuel Systems Plant (Columbus, Bartholomew County)
  4. Cummins Inc. - Columbus Engine Plant (Columbus, Bartholomew County)
  5. Fun Country Marine Industries, Inc. (Muncie, Delaware County)
  6. Manchester Tank & Equipment (Elkhart, Elkhart County)
  7. Mitsubishi Climate Control (Franklin, Johnson County)
  8. Uniseal, Inc. (Evansville, Vanderburgh County)
  9. Wabash National Corporation (Lafayette, Tippecanoe County)

"ESP members voluntarily eliminate wastes, preserve resources and protect the environment. They deserve recognition for going beyond basic requirements of the law," said Thomas W. Easterly, commissioner of IDEM, the state agency that manages ESP.

Efforts during their first year of membership will result in:

  • Reducing water use by 28,120,570 gallons;
  • Reducing energy use by 240,232 kilowatt hours per year;
  • Reducing solid waste by 2,246 tons and 1,080 gallons; and,
  • Reducing hazardous waste by 65,592 gallons.

ESP recognizes businesses that have a strong record of environmental compliance, set goals for continuous improvements in environmental performance beyond their legal requirements, have internal systems in place to manage their environmental impacts, engage in community outreach and consistently report results.

In return for outstanding environmental action, ESP members can receive accelerated permit review, flexibility in permitting, less frequent data review and other benefits that will aid the company without loosening current environmental regulations.

This is the second year of the ESP program and there are 33 members participating in this initiative.
