What is the Zero Landfill Initiative?
In 2004 Subaru of Indiana Automotive became the first automotive assembly plant in America to achieve Zero Landfill status. Now, Subaru is dedicated to helping other businesses and organizations achieve the same zero waste status. In 2015, the National Park Service partnered with Subaru to begin the Zero Landfill Initiative
within National Parks. The objective of the Zero Landfill Initiative is to use Subaru's expertise to identify, test, and promote practices that reduce the amount of trash parks send to landfills. For the program, three pilot parks, Grand Teton, Denali
, and Yosemite
, are tasked with becoming leaders in waste diversion and sustainable practices. At Grand Teton, generous funding from Subaru and the National Parks Conservation Association is being used to support a wide variety of programming.
