Corporate Social Responsibility

Environment

AMC's Mt. Pleasant facility recently began working more closely with Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality, and gained recognition as a Michigan Business Pollution Prevention Partner (MBP3) and a Clean Corporate Citizen (C3).
AMC has also engaged in sponsoring Michigan's Chippewa Watershed Conservancy, "a non-profit conservation group working to protect open space and natural habitat in the counties of the Chippewa River Watershed in Central Michigan. [They] are currently protecting 3,560 acres in 27 easements and 16 preserves. More information can be found on their website. www.chippewawatershedconservancy.org
American Mitsuba is committed to the: 
           Prevention of Pollution
           Conservation of Natural Resources

           Continual Improvement of our Manufacturing Processes"
Corporate Responsibility in relation to environmental practices encompasses a wide range of activities from energy and waste management to permitting and releases, both intentional and not. Corporate environmental policy states "American Mitsuba envisions an environment unburdened by pollution, where workers are exposed only to healthy and safe conditions, and where hazardous materials are used and transported safely and efficiently. We are aware that we coexist with our natural surroundings and that our operations have an effect on those surroundings."
AMC has a number of programs and adheres to many standards to ensure a strong position of environmental leadership, including the control of hazardous substances. We are committed to proactive initiatives and identification of actions with the potential to reduce our environmental impact. Current activities in this area include the progressive development of formal Pollution Prevention and Energy Assessment/Reduction Programs as well as the continual updating of permits and implemented programs.
