Honda Manufacturing Plant in Indiana Goes Green

Located in Greensburg, Indiana, Honda Manufacturing of Indiana, LLC (HMIN) got the LEED Green Building Certification for the Welcome Center. This is the ninth of Honda's North American facilities to receive LEED certification since the year 2008. 

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is a rating system for various types of buildings. It is awarded by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). It is a recognition of green building practice and performance globally. Located in Decatur County, HMIN is the first company to receive this recognition. 

There are six categories that the Welcome Center was evaluated in. The categories are Water Efficiency, Innovative Design, Sustainable Site, Energy & Atmosphere, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Materials & Resources. The Welcome Center includes shower facilities and bicycle storage for associates, lumber from sustainable forests, and 100 percent green power was purchased. There is also fuel-efficient vehicle parking in the lot for visitors and campus-wide recycling. 

The plant was built two years ago with the environment in mind. There are seven lakes on the campus, as well as two water quality ponds, and the facility is a zero-waste facility. Every bit of waste the facility makes is either reused or recycled; nothing goes to the landfill. Trees and earthen enhancements provide a natural buffer between the plant and those in the Greensburg area.

  14. I leavе a cоmment whenever I like a post οn a
    site or I hаve something to аdԁ
    to the conversation. It's caused by the fire communicated in the article I looked at. And after this post "Honda Manufacturing Plant in Indiana Goes Green". I was actually moved enough to post a thought :) I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it just me or does it look like a few of the comments appear as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I'd lіke
    to keep up with you. Would you maκе a list all of
    your communаl sites like youг twіtter
