The certification is based on the following criteria: energy efficient lighting, energy conservation, water conservation, organic and recyclable products, operations and maintenance standards. This certification is another step in the company's history of environmental consciousness and responsible material selection.
Nappanee, Ind.- based Gulf Stream has utilized green practices for years. It was the first RV company to earn the Indiana Governor's Award for Excellence in Recycling. Because of these ongoing green practices, TRA certification was quickly obtained.
JAYCO DOESN'T JUST SAY IT'S GREEN. WE BUILD IT GREEN, WHICH MEANS: A MORE LIVABLE RV, A MORE ENJOYABLE RV & A HEALTHIER PLANET.
This makes Jayco the first major RV manufacturer to be 100 percent green certified and fully-recognized for building products with green manufacturing processes and materials.
There are four levels of TRA's green rating for RV manufacturers:Bronze, Silver, Gold and Emerald. The majority of Jayco, Starcraft and Entegra Coach products achieved Emerald ratings in three out of five categories (water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and operation and maintenance) and Gold ratings in the other two categories (resource efficiency and energy efficiency).
"Jayco is honored to be the first major manufacturer to receive 100 percent green certification of all its towable and motorhome products and plants," said Derald Bontrager, Jaycou00e2u20acu2122s president. "We are proud of the efforts we make to be a 'green' company and operate as a good corporate citizen."
Bontrager said that Jayco has had a recycling program in affect since the early 1980's, adding that Jayco has received several recognitions for its recycling efforts including a Governor's Award of Excellence.
"Being green-minded is not a new concept at Jayco," said Bontrager. "A recent report of our efforts in 2009 shows that our recycling efforts and other conservation programs helped us save more than 28,000trees. We saved enough energy to power more than 600 family homes for an entire year, and saved more than 14,000 cubic yards of landfill space."
Among other things, Jayco was cited for its use of sustainable materials, waste reduction and recycling programs, reduction of harmful volatile compounds found in RV components such as carpeting, wood parts, adhesives, etc., installation of efficient appliances and fixtures, use of energy-efficient design and construction and utilization of renewable, clean energy.
