Environmental Stewardship

Environmental Stewardship

We embrace our responsibility to protect the environment and manage every area of the business. From sourcing operations to manufacturing, to packaging and distribution WVE™ works to minimize our environmental footprint. 

In keeping with this commitment, WVE™ has achieved ISO 14001, which requires the careful monitoring and control of the environmental effects of all activities, products, and services. This global standard also assesses energy usage, waste creation and disposal, and general environmental awareness. Our goal is to reduce waste and minimize the use of hazardous materials while continuing to manufacture superior products. All materials entering our plants are evaluated as to their potential environmental effects. ISO 14001 also considers the final disposition of manufactured products when their useful life has ended.


NTK® Salvage Sensor Recovery Program (SSRP) 

As part of its commitment to a sustainable environment, NGK Spark Plugs (U.S.A.), Inc. created the Salvage Sensor Recovery Program (SSRP) as an oxygen sensor recycling program for professional technicians.


This program enables technicians to recycle old sensors, regardless of brand, in exchange for gift cards to major restaurants and retailers. NGK recycles the precious metals from the oxygen sensor for re-use in the open market.
