PHILADELPHIA — Automotive parts remanufacturer CARDONE Industries has been accepted for membership in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Environmental Performance Track Program. Performance Track rewards facilities that voluntarily exceed regulatory requirements, implement environmental management systems, work closely with their communities and set three-year goals to continuously improve environmental performance.
CARDONE Industries was one of the first remanufacturers in the U.S. to earn ISO/TS16949 certification. It was also one of the first remanufacturers to achieve ISO 9002 and QS-9000 quality certifications (precursors to ISO/TS16949) and ISO 14001 certification, an environmental management certification.
“The National Environmental Performance Track rewards exceptional progress,” said EPA Administrator Mike Leavitt, “We recognize these facilities as environmental leaders because their business models are delivering environmental results beyond what is expected or required,” said Leavitt.
The EPA seeks to establish Performance Track as the “gold standard” for facility based environmental performance — a standard that participating members strive to attain as they exceed their performance commitments.
