Wabash National Corp. announced that the company has been accepted as a member of Indiana’s Environmental Stewardship Program. Wabash National says it joins a select group of facilities across Indiana with such an accomplishment in environmental excellence.
“Being recognized as an environmental steward reflects our dedication to driving world-class environmental initiatives,” says Brent Yeagy, Wabash National’s vice president of manufacturing for operations in Lafayette, Ind. “This achievement was only made possible through the combined effort and dedication of each and every associate at Wabash National.”
Wabash National says that becoming a member of Indiana’s Environmental Stewardship Program recognizes its commitment to implementing processes and procedures to protect the environment and drive for continuous improvement in environmental performance.
“We want our customers, community and peers to understand our dedication to environmental management,” says Eric Coates, Wabash National’s director of environmental, health and safety. “We are very proud of our team’s allegiance to the environment and the community.”
Indiana’s Environmental Stewardship Program is a voluntary performance-based leadership program designed to recognize and reward Indiana regulated entities for going above and beyond current environmental regulations by enforcing an environmental management system, committing to continuous improvement and meeting rigid requirements for membership.
