While the automotive industry revolves around the notion of building more and more cars, they are also looking for ways to be environmentally sustainable – giving something of tangible benefit to the ecosystem and the world outside their plants.  John Bradburn, Chief Materials and Sustainability Officer at Pathway21, was amongst a number of environmental engineers speaking last week at the campus of Mercedes Benz U.S. International for the Automotive Environmental Conference sponsored by the Alabama Automotive Manufacturer’s Association and other organizations (including Southern Automotive Alliance magazine).

The Alabama Automotive Manufacturers Association (AAMA) was formed in 2001 to provide a forum for interaction among automotive companies in Alabama, to share information among its members and to provide an awareness of manufacturing trends, techniques and concerns.
