Denso, ESG work to reduce carbon footprint of Battle Creek plant

SOUTHFIELD–The Japan-based mobility supplier Denso announced that it is working with Energy Systems Group to increase the sustainability of operations at its thermal manufacturing plant in Battle Creek, replacing and updating compressed air systems, enhancing its energy efficiency and climate friendliness.

In summer 2024, when updates are expected to be complete, the new systems will begin to help Denso remove nearly 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually from the thermal facility’s operations.

“Our commitment to being green doesn’t only apply to our products. It also motivates us to continuously seek new ways to operate more sustainably and conserve more energy,” said Todd Greer, a director of facilities and engineering production at the plant. “We are grateful for ESG’s support, as it will be crucial to our pursuit of Eco Vision 2025, Denso’s global initiative to halve energy use and double clean and green activities by next year.”

Added ESG account executive Michael Nordloh: “In this project, we are excited to help Denso optimize its compressed air usage in Battle Creek, which will reduce the site’s carbon footprint while providing significant energy and cost savings.”

Denso has a corporate goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2035.

Last September Denso announced it would invest $63 million in the Battle Creek plant to retool production lines and accommodate products that support electrified vehicles. The plant also joined the Consumers Energy Business Renewable Eneryg Program in April 2023.
