Making it possible through reduced CO2 emissions.

From planting thousands of trees, to cleaning up more than 30 tons of trash, it is clear Delphi employee efforts to reduce CO2 emissions made a meaningful difference around the world in 2016.

In addition to the efforts listed in the following pages, you’ll see their passion and commitment reflected in this video.

“It is heartwarming and encouraging to see Delphi employees dedicating time and effort to help both local and global needs. We are proud to empower our team to contribute to the communities we operate in.”

Bill Guggina, Vice President of Operations and President, Delphi Mexico

 

Delphi’s Collegno and Turin plants participated in "Clean Plant-CO2", a system created by an eco-sustainability group that is devoted to ending climate change. Making changes to daily behavior, such as always powering down computers, 240 employees reduced 4,125 kilograms (kg) of CO2. That’s equal to 118 days of energy consumed by an average household! As a result of this impressive energy savings, a summary of Delphi’s accomplishments was added to the Clean Planet-CO2 website’s eco-registry.

During Energy Day at the Blois, France, facility, employees took part in energy consumption activities to raise awareness of how much energy is required for typical daily tasks both at work and at home. In fact, these educational activities, in combination with the commitment of Delphi’s plant employees, helped the Blois facility reduce its electricity consumption by four percent over the previous year.

Delphi donated 1,500 trees and plants, which will absorb
almost 72,000 pounds
of CO2 each year.

Organic Farming: India
The Cochin manufacturing plant rented one and half acres of overgrown land, and employees worked with the community to plant and harvest over 3,000 pounds (1,400 kg) of organic brown rice. The project encouraged young people to participate in agricultural and environmental activities, and helped feed people in local villages.

Delphi’s Piracicaba, Brazil, plant helped teach local children the importance of recycling by using discarded plastic bottles to build a popular string toy, called a "vai e vem." The same activity was done in the plant with employees’ children. Overall, Delphi’s team visited five schools, and over 300 children, to teach the importance of recycling.

3,000 Delphi employees in Asia Pacific contributed
over 5,000 hours to serve
the environment and their community

At the São Caetano do Sul, Brazil, plant, employees were using an average of 600 disposable plastic cups per week. To combat this environmental threat, they distributed reusable mugs and bottles to all employees, contributing to ongoing CO2 reductions by lessening the demand for newly manufactured products.

Trees have a significant impact on CO2 and our environment. As a tree matures, it consumes 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. In Mexico, several Delphi facilities donated more than 1,500 trees to team members as well as local parks and elementary schools. When mature, the trees planted by Delphi employees will consume almost 72,000 pounds of CO2 per year. At the Los Mochis facility, employees went beyond planting trees and gave local children a greener, cleaner area to play by cleaning a city park, which serves more than 100 nearby families.

In the United States, Delphi employees in Michigan partnered with an organization that inspires the sustainable growth of a healthy urban community through trees, green spaces, food, education, training and job opportunities. The first partnership project involved preparing park gardens for harvest planting. Future projects will include building schoolyard gardens and participating in community tree planting events.

Throughout 2016, more than 3,000 Delphi employees in Asia-Pacific contributed over 5,000 hours protecting the environment and serving their communities.

In Korea, Delphi’s Namyang and Pyeongtaek facilities supported reducing CO2 emissions by minimizing food waste and using reusable water bottles.

In China, plants in Shanghai and Suzhou and our technical center donated 288 used computers and more than 300 English books to Netspring, a social enterprise focused on green IT classrooms and training underprivileged children and their teachers.

In India, Delphi’s Cochin, Gurgaon and Pune sites supported reducing CO2 emissions by participating in a plastic bottle recycling initiative.
