Sustainability 2 Agenda Overview LCA & Operational Sustainability Take Back Program Reman Process Recycling/Reuse Opportunities Q & A
Sustainability 3 A Diverse Product Portfolio World’s largest product portfolio of any small wheel vehicle manufacturer supporting three categories.
Sustainability 4 Club Car platform variety drives opportunities in major market segments. Commercial Utility, Cargo & Personnel Vehicles Golf Golf, Utility & Hospitality Vehicles Consumer Home Use & Rough Terrain Vehicles 4x4 800 Vehicle Markets Café Express SE
Sustainability 5 Low-Speed Vehicles engineered to travel on roads with speed limits of 35 mph or less. When compared to traditional transportation, LSVs provide distinct advantages: Zero Emissions Reduce environmental impact. Zero Fuel Significantly reduce fuel consumption. Lower Operating Expenses Less expensive to purchase and operate. No fuel and reduced maintenance costs translate into significant savings. Improved productivity Quicker vehicle entry and egress. Tighter turning radius and narrow vehicle width enables LSV vehicle to enter tight areas and get close to work zones. Lighter footprint is better for driving on grass. Payloads up to 1/2 ton. Villager 2+2 Passenger LSV Carryall 6 Cargo LSV Street-legal LSV Solutions
Sustainability 6 Subaru EX40 EFI Gas Powertrain OHC vs OHV EFI More Power 30% more HP 400cc displacement 20 ft-lbs output torque Limited Slip Option No choke Up to 50% more fuel efficient Quick cold starting Automotive design Fewer parts More robust design Longer life Quieter valve train No oil filter to change Less cost Better for the environment Cooler oil temps Splash/Chain Lubrication Most modern small engine design and mfg. process in the world
Sustainability 7 Our global footprint helps make Club Car No. 1 in world-wide market share. Channel Presence 500+ distributor locations worldwide Expanding consumer retail outlets & low-speed vehicle (LSV) dealers Distribution is located in 80+ countries Distribution has sold 2,000,000+ vehicles worldwide No. 1 worldwide market share for electric plug-in vehicles (EPVs)
Sustainability 8 Life Cycle Assessment & Operational Sustainability EHS included in NPD & MOC Process –Evaluate utilities requirements, potential wastewater discharge, air emissions, hazardous material usage, wastes and recyclables, etc. Project to eliminate industrial wastewater permit on-going General Industrial Stormwater Permit Only No permitted air emission sources Minimal (deminimus) Hazardous Waste Generation New Material Request process for hazardous materials Periodic review of inventory to identify less/non-hazardous substitutions Limited noise exposure to employees and surrounding area
Sustainability 9 Environmental Impact – 2012 to YTD Nearly 1 Million Pounds Diverted from Landfills in 2013 569,000 Pounds Diverted 2014 YTD $38,000 saved in disposal costs in 2013 1.1 million less gallons used in 2013 269,000 million less gallons 2014 YTD
Sustainability 10 Environmental Impact – 2012 to YTD (cont) 13% reduction in electricity in 2013 6% reduction in electricity 2014 YTD $124,000 saved in 2013 39% reduction in BTU in 2013 67% reduction in BTU 2014 YTD
Sustainability 11 Energy Conservation Energy efficient lighting and sensors - Main Office and Service Parts New energy efficient air compressor and dryer Rapid-roll doors in Main Plant Programmable and locked thermostats Energy efficient furnaces in ATUs; removal of inefficient NG heaters Installation of energy efficient HVAC and removal of 300 ½ HP fans Dock and overhead door seals
Sustainability 12 Recycling & Club Car Sorting Areas Developed by Green Team Members and Employees Garbage and Dumpster Dives by Employees Non-Recyclables –Food waste (anything with food in it or on it) –Chewing gum –Dirty air filters –Floor sweepings –Canteen food packaging (candy wrappers, chip bags) –Used gloves (latex or other) –Oily wipes –Tobacco products –Foam packing material
Sustainability 13 Environmental Stewardship Installation of low-flow commodes and sensored faucets in remodeled restrooms at Main Plant and Service Parts Elimination of acid wash for used car frames Installation of energy efficient hand dryers in remodeled restrooms Electric fleet of plant use cars Phased substitution of “green” products Energy efficient vending machines Food trucks to reduce commuting off 750+ employees
Sustainability 14 Recycling & Remanufacturing Trash dives and sorting at point of generation Battery Recycling - 99% of battery recycled and revenue to business Approximately 5% of the used car sales are Remanufactured for Aftermarket sale. Used Parts sold to Channel Partners. Recycling Streams: –Lead-Acid Batteries –Aluminum, Steel & Scrap Metal –Cardboard/OCC & Mixed Paper –Computer Parts/Electronics –LDPE Film Clear & Mixed Color –Mixed Strapping & PET Green Strapping –Mixed Rigid Parts –Styrofoam –Tires –Seats –Scrap Wood/Pallets
Sustainability 15 Battery Recycling - Environmental Benefits 99% of Battery Recycled The disposal and recycling of lead acid batteries is strictly regulated by government agencies. According to the Battery Council International, the lead-acid battery is the most- recycled consumer product in the world. At over 97 percent, the recycling rate of spent lead-acid batteries beats aluminum cans (55%), newspapers (45%) and glass bottles (26%) by a significant margin. Lead is also able to be recycled infinitely without degradation of quality and recycled lead is indistinguishable from primary lead. Lead-acid batteries received at recycling facilities are shredded or otherwise disassembled, and the lead, casing and acid fractions are separated. Sulfuric acid is typically converted to sodium sulfate (a marketable material); reused on a limited basis; or neutralizing and discharged as clean water. Shredded polypropylene casings are washed, sized, classified, melted and extruded to form polypropylene pellets used to manufacture new battery cases. Lead is recovered in furnaces (smelters) and is reused for the manufacture of lead-acid batteries or as a raw material in other processes.
