AK Steel receives supplier award

AK Steel received a supplier award for environmental achievement from Honda North America, Inc. The award was given in recognition of AK Steel’s project at its Rockport, Indiana facility that resulted in reduced water and energy consumption. It was presented at Honda’s 23rd Annual Supplier Symposium in Columbus, Ohio in the Conservation of Natural Resources category. “We are honoured to receive this supplier recognition from Honda,” said James L. Wainscott, Chairman, President and CEO of AK Steel. “This project is just one example of our ongoing work to encourage recycling, recovery, reuse and reduction, where possible, of water and energy in our operations.”

The award was given as part of Honda’s Environmental Achievement Recognition. The voluntary program recognizes suppliers who achieve environmental excellence in at least one of three different categories, including pollution prevention, energy reduction and conservation of natural resources. The purpose of the program is to recognize suppliers’ efforts in completing projects with Honda Green Factory benefits and to communicate and share projects and ideas with other suppliers.
