TRA Certification of Elkhart, Ind., has awarded an overall “gold” rating to Airstream Inc.’s travel trailers and has designated the Jackson Center, Ohio-based company as a “Certified Green Capable Manufacturer” after evaluating its production facility.
Citing Jackson Center, Ohio-based Airstream’s “streamlined production process that minimizes waste and utilizes low-emitting materials,” TRA’s independent third-party certification team also recognized the manufacturer for using recycled water in its waterproof test booth. TRA said in a news release that certification of the facility indicates that Airstream “advocates the production of ‘green’ RVs in a sustainable manner.”
Airstream travel trailers performed at the top “emerald’ level in TRA’s evaluation of energy efficiency. The overall gold rating was based on an evaluation of resource, energy and water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and operation and maintenance.
Both the product and manufacturing certifications are renewed annually and are subject to inspections throughout the year to ensure ongoing compliance, TRA said.
Airstream will soon incorporate “Certified Green” labels on its travel trailers to communicate the company’s commitment to developing healthy and sustainable products.
