|The Subaru Zero Landfill Plant|
In 2004, our Subaru of Indiana manufacturing plant became the first automotive assembly facility to be "zero landfill," meaning all waste is recycled or turned into electricity. In other words, a single-family home produces more waste in a day than our SIA plant does in a year
National Wildlife Habitat
In 2003, Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. became the first automotive assembly facility to be designated as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Over 800 acres serve as a home for birds and animals, including white-tail deer, red-tail hawks, blue heron, Canadian geese, mallard ducks, beavers, coyote, snapping turtles and the bald eagle.
Partial-Zero Emission Vehicles
Subaru has offered certified Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV) since 2003, including Legacy, Outback and Forester models for sale anywhere in the United States. Subaru Partial Zero Emission Vehicles meet California's Super-Ultra-Low-Emission vehicle exhaust emission standard. Gasoline vehicles meeting these standards can have even lower emissions than hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles.
Share the Love Garden
Subaru of America, Inc. has established a one-of-a-kind corporate initiative with the Subaru Share the Love Garden, which donates to local food banks to combat hunger in the region. Located at the Subaru headquarters in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, the six 10'x10' garden plots have been adopted by Subaru employee teams, about 85 people in total. Subaru's partner, Greensgrow, a local urban gardening organization, provides guidance and education on planting, maintaining and harvesting the garden.
