A truly unique aspect of SP is its collaborative relationship with the EPA, which helps provide SP with topics for special projects and approaches.
More importantly, SP provides a forum for member companies and the EPA to work in collaboration to achieve common environmental goals.
SP was honored to participate in the US Workshop of the G7 Alliance on Resource Efficiency hosted by US EPA, and to have the opportunity to share information on resource efficiency in the automotive supply chain with leaders from the G7 countries.
