TUPELO, Miss. (May 14, 2015) — Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.'s plant in Tupelo has earned the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality's (MDEQ) enHance Partnership Award for 2015.
The enHance program is a voluntary stewardship initiative that recognizes facilities and municipalities for putting in place environmental initiatives beyond those that are required, Findlay, Ohio-based Cooper said.
The company's Tupelo plant has been a member of the program since 2011.
“Cooper's environmental policy commits our plant to using energy and natural resources efficiently, reducing waste, preventing pollution and acting as a good corporate citizen through the use of good environmental practices,” said John Swartzendruber, Cooper Tupelo's environmental coordinator.
