The "Delphi CO2 Emission Reduction Program" is a guiding force in every aspect of Delphi's business activities to proactively minimize the negative environmental impact of its manufacturing processes and of its products and technologies. For example, Delphi's plant in Seixal, Portugal operates a resin optimization process that runs across casting, sealing, and coating of ignitions coils components, promoting electrical and resistance insulation. The site was able to optimize the process to minimize the heating of the resin casting process, saving almost 390,000 kWh of energy and avoiding almost 170 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

The Delphi plant in Seixal, was honored with the global Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001:2007 Management System certification. Delphi was the first company in all of Portugal to be certified under the 2007 version of the OHSAS 18001 management standard. The OHSAS standard specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety management system and certification is achieved as a result of a successful assessment of current plant safety methods against accepted safety standards.
