Two Cooper Plants Honored for Environmental Leadership


The state of Mississippi has recognized two tire plants operated by Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. for their initiatives to protect and preserve the environment.

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) has recognized Cooper Tupelo and Clarksdale plants as members of its environmental stewardship enHance initiative.

A voluntary program consisting of three-year membership terms, the enHance initiative, which stands for “envision heightened awareness nurturing conservation and environmental excellence,” recognizes committed environmental leaders in Mississippi that put in place environmental initiatives beyond those that are required.

The MDEQ enHance program is designed to encourage the reduction of waste and conservation of resources, resulting in long-term economic benefit and continuous environmental enhancement.

There are four levels of membership: Associate, Steward, Leader, and for non-regulated entities, Environmental Star.

The Clarksdale plant has been a member for three years and has been recognized as a Steward level member for its second three-year term.

The Tupelo plant has been a member for six years and has been recognized as a Leader level member, the highest level possible, for its third three-year term.

“Cooper is committed to continual environmental improvements at our facilities around the world. We are working hard to remove materials from landfills, reduce our energy usage, decrease our water consumption and promote improved recycling opportunities for our scrap materials,” says Tom Wood, Cooper’s environmental affairs director.

“Our environmental commitment is aligned with the goals of the enHance initiative and we appreciate the networking with likeminded companies the program provides.”
