The quality of our community and its resources provides a platform for our company and our employees to grow and thrive.

We seek to integrate awareness of social and community issues into corporate decisions at all levels and to encourage active participation in endeavors which benefit the community where we live and work. This includes our local communities as well as our business community at large, our corporate community, and our supply chain community.

We are proud to support many initiatives to help those in our community. We encourage our employees to get involved as well, as we provide compensatory time for them to do so.



Environmental responsibility and sustainability are important issues for Motion Industries and its employees, customers and shareholders. We recognize our responsibility to respect and sustain our environment and are committed to strategies, policies and programs to do our part as it relates to our energy management, facilities management, shipping practices and the products we sell.

Motion Industries' Green Initiative

Motion Industries' Green Initiative

Our Choose Green initiative began with a corporate-wide program that encourages employees to make choices respectful of our environment, both at work and at home, including the sharing of Green Initiatives Results, Employee Green Ideas, Employee Green Tips and a Choose Green Brochure.

Choose Green works in conjunction with Genuine Parts Company's Living Earth Environmental Program (LEEP). Together, these and other initiatives aim to raise awareness of environmental issues and to show employees how to live and work in ways that respect the Earth and reduce their impact on the natural environment. This includes promoting, recycling and reusing materials like cardboard, paper, glass and metals; keeping environmental concerns top-of-mind for all employees through newsletters and quarterly posters (on recycled paper of course); and, recognizing and rewarding exceptional performance and results from Company locations and individuals.
