Evanston Subaru is proud to represent Subaru vehicles. Subaru has a long history of being socially responsible. Selected efforts by Subaru are listed below:
Subaru and the Environment
Subaru of America understands, as should all manufacturers, that it has a great responsibility to the environment. But clean vehicles are just one part of it.
The Subaru Zero Landfill Plant
In 2004, our Subaru of Indiana manufacturing plant became the first automotive assembly facility to be "zero landfill," meaning all waste is recycled or
turned into electricity. In other words, a single-family home produces more waste in a day than our SIA plant does in a year.
National Wildlife Habitat
Backyard Wildlife Habitat
In 2003, Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. became the first automotive assembly facility to be designated as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Over 800 acres serve as a home for birds and animals, including white-tail deer, red-tail hawks, blue heron, Canadian geese, mallard ducks, beavers, coyote, snapping turtles and the bald eagle.
Partial-Zero Emission Vehicles
Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV)
Subaru has offered certified Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV) since 2003, including Legacy, Outback and Forester models for sale anywhere in the United States. Subaru Partial Zero Emission Vehicles meet California's Super-Ultra-Low-Emission vehicle exhaust emission standard. Gasoline vehicles meeting these standards can have even lower emissions than hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles.
Subaru of America Foundation, Inc.
The Subaru of America Foundation (SOAF) was established in 1984 as a way to formally address and support the needs of local communities. Since that time, the SOAF has awarded more than $6 million to programs that serve primarily children. By offering young people creative enrichment, environmental, and educational programs that engage them in the learning process, we are not only taking an active role in helping to make learning a more participatory fun educational experience but also helping to build the next generation of leaders.
