LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. — Mack Trucks is participating in Earth Day by launching an environmental Web site and celebrating the occasion locally at a science museum in Lehigh Valley.
The new Web site highlights Mack’s environmental achievements at its worldwide facilities. The site is currently available through Mack’s main Web site: www.macktrucks.com.
“Being ‘green’ is a consideration in everything we do,” said Dennis Slagle, Mack president and CEO. “We’ve made significant advancements in our products and operations from an environmental standpoint. This new Web site is a great way to share what we’re doing with our customers, employees, public officials and neighbors in this community.”
Visitors to the site can access information on how Mack is helping the environment.
“For example, visitors can learn that the water saved each year from the New River Valley plant’s conservation efforts is enough to fill 15 Olympic-sized swimming pools, and that the Mack Remanufacturing Center in Middletown, Pa. recycles more than 95% of its waste,” Slagle said.
Meanwhile, Mack is planning to celebrate Earth Day Apr. 22 at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, Pa. Mack’s director of health, safety and environment, Scott Morris, will be on-hand to take part in the community’s dialogue about the environment.
“I’m looking forward to sharing our experience in environmental management on the new Web site and in the Earth Day forum, because I think many of the principles we’ve followed are relevant to individuals and families as well,” Morris said. “Becoming more energy efficient, reducing unnecessary use of natural resources like water, and embracing recycling and waste reduction strategies these are all important parts of our environmental strategy at Mack. And the success of our strategy so far can help inspire people to adopt these same principles at home and in their daily lives,” he added.
