recycleTwo Michigan manufacturing plants owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have been awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Green Building System certification.

LEED is a comprehensive system designed to define, measure, and validate green buildings, based on strict standards in five key areas. These include site planning, water management, indoor environmental quality, material use, and energy. In other words, plants that earn Silver, Platinum, or Gold LEED certification are guaranteed to be some of the greenest around.

Awards were granted to the FCA US Sterling Heights Assembly Plant body shop and the ZF Axle Drives Marysville plant, which, according to FCA Vice President of Manufacturing Brian Harlow, “were designed and constructed to be leaders in sustainability and in the preservation of the environment.”

We have great cars at Roger Williams CDJR, but it’s also nice to know they were built in manufacturing facilities that are equally as great!
