The Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC), an organization tasked with protecting the environment while also supporting economic growth, has presented Chrysler Group’s Brampton Assembly Plant (BAP) with a “Leadership Award.”
The BAP, located in Brampton, Ontario, assembles the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Challenger.
As part of Chrysler Group’s pursuit of excellence in its manufacturing and assembly facilities, the plant has installed technologies to save money and increase the facility’s efficiency.
These include an automated lighting system which switches off lights in unoccupied rooms, and an automated heating and ventilation system which functions according to a schedule. These two technologies alone are estimated to save over $2 million per year in energy costs, as well as reducing the facility’s environmental impact.
CIPEC’s Leadership Award recognizes companies that make significant and innovative contributions to energy efficiency. According to the Honourable Greg Rickford, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, “Our Government is committed to protecting the environment while supporting economic growth. This award demonstrates the company’s commitment to improving productivity and environmental performance in the industrial sector.”
