Standard Motor Products, Inc. (NYSE: SMP), a leading automotive parts manufacturer and distributor, was recently recognized in the USA Today’s Inaugural List of America’s Climate Leaders, representing companies that have reduced greenhouse gas emissions and cut their carbon footprint over the past several years.
The ranking, which began with a list of 2,000 U.S.-based companies, was narrowed to 400 companies that cut emissions intensity (measured by amount of greenhouse gas the company produced relative to its revenue) as well as met certain other stringent requirements over the 2019-2021 period. Further, of the 400 companies that met the requirements, SMP was one of only seven automotive parts manufacturers that achieved these criteria to be recognized as a leader in this Inaugural List.
Eric Sills, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of SMP, stated, “We are honored to have received this recognition and be part of such a small group in this Sector that met the criteria for this achievement. Our sustainability efforts remain a top focus at SMP and, while we have much work to do, we are confident that the initiatives we have in place will continue to provide measured progress toward our long-term goals.”
