Kia production goes greener

Kia Motors have made efforts to reduce the environmental impact of their manufacturing facilities in South Korea.

According to the manufacturer’s annual sustainability report, Kia has employed more sustainable production methods in their three local plants by recycling materials, lowering the consumption of raw materials, and conserving water.

Kia has found alternate uses for waster materials such as zinc coated steel is sent to steelmakers and uncoated steel is reused at their foundry while overall steel use to produce each vehicle has also been trimmed down.

These steps have resulted in reduced water consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions and less waste.

The three Korean plants alone produce 56.5% of Kia vehicles globally with 1.72 million units last year.
