Corporate Social Responsibility: Planet


A Conscious Response to Responsibility

We’ll continue to work toward a zero waste world, investigating recycling technologies, processing methods and market opportunities to streamline our efforts for optimum sustainability. 

Currently, all of Delphi’s manufacturing facilities as well as some of our technical centers and offices are ISO 14001 certified. In addition, many of our facilities are pursuing additional certification including OHSAS 18001 and ISO 50001.

Here are samples of other ways Delphi teams around the world are working toward a healthier planet.

A recipe for responsibility in Brazil (how to go green at home)

In Brazil, huge amounts of cooking oil are used in restaurants and homes, where disposal can be a challenge. Getting rid of the oil can clog drains, release toxic chemicals into the water and harm plants and animals. In 2011, we began a local initiative: the Oil Recycling Program. Our first step was to encourage plant employees to recycle oil daily. By 2013, we had collected 1,800 liters of cooking oil to be transformed back into biofuels, soaps and other useful materials.

Last July, we celebrated Environment Day in Brazil, Mexico and the other Delphi locations in Latin America, by educating people on how to protect our Earth so it can be enjoyed by future generations. Activities started with an artistic flair as children were asked to creatively express the theme of climate change. Delphi Mexico and Delphi Brazil created campaigns, held educational workshops and recycling marathons, and undertook water, energy and reforestation projects to underline our wider responsibility. We also launched the Zero Landfill challenge, encouraging all of our Latin American plants to recycle up to 95% of waste generated on site.

Delphi China exemplifies excellence with computer donation

People, product and planet are at the heart of Delphi’s focus on responsibility. And nowhere was this more apparent than when our team in China underlined this dedication toward a better world by donating up-cycled computer devices to the social enterprise “Green IT Classroom” program.

In total, we gave 215 used electronic devices. Along with donations from 20 other companies, this benefitted underprivileged children and elderly people in rural Chinese villages.

Green alternatives on World Earth Day in China

To celebrate World Earth Day in Shanghai, we encouraged employees to use green alternatives to arrive safely at work - sharing transport, taking the subway and riding bicycles were all great energy-efficient alternatives.
