"We're eco-conscious and employees are very aware... we've experienced tremendous growth and development at Prevost - it's like a school. We've been trained at Prevost. And now we see works of art being produced at the plant."
Stephane Mercier and Steve Carrier, prep and paint trainers, 16 and 15 years respectively with Prevost
Prevost was the first North American coach manufacturer to achieve ISO 14001 certification for its Environmental Management System. Our commitment to environmental stewardship goes beyond respecting and upholding all applicable environmental laws and regulations.
Indeed, our vision for sustainability is to continue to be the industry leader in reducing waste and pollution, and maximizing reuse of resources in both our processes and our products.
Engine Emissions: To meet the requirements of the new, more stringent heavy-duty diesel EPA emissions standards for 2010 and beyond, Prevost specified the Volvo D13 engine with its advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).
The Volvo D13 is the only engine that reduces diesel emissions and improves air quality beyond the standards of the 2010 regulations, while simultaneously increasing fuel efficiency. Thanks to our unique vertical installation and rooftop diffuser mount, the SCR and diesel particulate filter system generate less heat in the engine compartment, further contributing to clean and efficient engine operation.
The vertical configuration also provides for easy access and safe maintenance, and protects the SCR components from damaging dirt, water and other road debris.
ISO 14001 leadership: Prevost has been ISO 14001 certified since 1997. As the first and only North American coach manufacturer to have achieved this world-recognized environmental certification, we are focused on continual improvement and refinement of our Environmental Management System and its attendant processes.
We select suppliers and partners who share our passion for environmental care and conscientiousness. Our quest is to minimize the environmental impact of every aspect of our business.
