Where there’s a Subaru made, there’s a Subaru recycled in some way, shape, or form. In fact, we’re so passionate about it, we currently have 95 percent recyclability in our vehicles; we will have recyclability in everything we do by 2015.

- Impreza trunk trim

We love working with those who care about the Earth as much as we do – and show it by how they run their respective businesses. Our vendors and suppliers are held to standards similar to those that we at Subaru uphold, all to further minimize our collective footprint.
Case in point: When you see a Subaru commercial on TV, you can bet it was created under the greenest possible guidelines. To do so, we often work with a company called EcoSet, which develops a turnkey green plan for the shoot and oversees its execution. Essentially, the shoot becomes a “zero waste set.”
United By Blue, The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, the American Canoe Association, and Greensgrow Farms are some of the many partnerships we’ve formed that share our priorities in protecting and preserving Earth’s natural resources.
