    involved in creating the organization The partnership s twin goals are to benefit the environment and save suppliers money And the two can be achieved simultaneously when a company cuts the amount of material it buys for production or when it reduces the wastes sent to incinerators landfills or treatment plants or if it does both the partnership says The savings realized stay with the supplier says Steve Hellem executive director of the partnership In other words these are potential cost reductions that the financially squeezed suppliers don t have to pass on to customers in lower prices But there are hurdles More automakers are sought One hurdle is the need to increase membership especially among Tier 2 and 3 suppliers so that there are more companies to generate and share ideas The partnership began early this year by General Motors the EPA and 13 suppliers The suppliers were Ashland Inc BAE Industries Delphi Corp Detroit Chassis LLC Federal Mogul Corp Freudenberg NOK Haas TCM Johnson Controls Inc Lear Corp Motorola Inc NSK Corp Petoskey Plastics Inc and Visteon Corp Membership is rising but partnership leaders say getting other automakers to participate is key to accelerating expansion with suppliers Beattie GM s director of chemical risk management and an at large member of the partnership acknowledges that in the hotly competitive automobile industry there s always that possibility that other automakers will shy away from the partnership because they view it as a GM organization Spokesmen for Ford Motor Co DaimlerChrysler AG and Toyota Motor North America Inc all said in responses to questions about the partnership that they were not familiar with the organization Each also notes that his or her company has programs to help or even require suppliers to improve their environmental performance Beattie says that other automakers are considering invitations to join the partnership She says she knows of none that has said flatly no Saturn roots The partnership grew out of a test program conducted by the EPA and GM s Saturn Corp when the Saturn Vue SUV was being developed In one example Saturn and its seat supplier determined there was minimal quality enhancement from wrapping every vehicle seat in plastic but the coverings created waste for dealers says John Resslar who oversaw the test He is now GM manager of design for the environment So the wrapping of seats ended All the possible savings identified during the test if extended to the entire GM supply chain would reach a staggering 390 million to 520 million according to a report by GM and the EPA GM and the EPA concluded that considerable environmental gains are possible among the thousands of lower tier suppliers The main reasons Small and mid sized companies generally don t have resources of their own for sophisticated environmental management they have had limited contact with automakers environmental staffs and they have participated infrequently in EPA s voluntary programs for pollution reduction Michael Coast president of the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center
