MAUMEE, Ohio—As an automotive supplier, Dana Inc. is committed to helping the industry achieve its sustainability aims.
More than that, the company is committed to ensuring the sustainability of its own operations. On Earth Day, April 22, Dana released "A Better Way," its first all-digital interactive annual Sustainability and Social Responsibility Report, highlighting its goals, achievements and visions.
"Sustainability and social responsibility are key priorities for Dana, and we are committed to taking action to improve and protect our planet for generations to come," James Kamsickas, Dana chairman and CEO, said in a statement.
Among the steps that Dana has taken recently to support its sustainability initiatives was the appointment of Doug Liedberg to Dana's senior vice president and general counsel to the additional role as the company's first chief sustainability officer.
The company also has committed to reducing the total greenhouse gas emission by more than 50 percent by the end of 2035, and intends to reduce annual GHS emissions from electricity by 90 percent in the U.S.
Dana also has committed to expanding the use of advanced energy-efficient production processes to reduce its global water consumption and waste.
Sustainability isn't just about reducing greenhouse gas emissions or carbon footprints. It's about creating work environments. To this end, Dana said it is committed to "providing a safe, respectful and inclusive workplace, where all of Dana's 38,000 employees across 141 major facilities in 33 countries can contribute, participate and succeed."
Globally, Dana's sustainability efforts have received recognition, earning it a place on Newsweek's "Most Responsible Companies" list and being named among Forbes' "World's Best Employers."
"Across the globe, Dana is building a better tomorrow for our customers and communities," Kamsickas said. "We believe that what we do makes a difference and we are co-innovating with our customers to shape the next generation of mobility technology to deliver a positive impact for our world."
