Last week we introduced you to five energy managers at General Motors who helped the company achieve the U.S. ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry last year. Their hard work and dedication to the energy cause were a big part of the reason why 63 plants reduced 1.2 million metric tons of CO2 collectively.

If you missed the series, we’ve got you covered. Below are links to each energy manager’s Q&A, along with a tidbit explaining why you should check out what they have to say.

Jim Divilbiss, Flint (Mich.) Assembly – The “off” switch is the most important energy-savings tool.

Bob Griffith, Spring Hill Manufacturing – Bob strives to keep his home as energy efficient as his facility, all the way down to a geothermal pump.

Kirill Vasilyev, St. Petersburg (Russia) Assembly – Each week, Kirill and the rest of the energy team meets to discuss energy results and identify where they can make improvements.

Chenguang Zhao, Jinqiao (China) Assembly – Among other things, Chenguang recycles the water to flush toilets, reducing the amount of water that is wasted in his home.

Chaowarit Boonphongsri, Rayong (Thailand) Assembly – According to Chaowarit, Rayong employees feel more positive about energy savings when they see tangible results.
