Heart to Hearts

Heart to Hearts Campaign Enters Eighth Year

Supported by Manheim leadership, employees, vendors and customers nationwide, the Heart to Hearts program focuses on helping the Michael P. Fisher CICU at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Sibley Heart Center improve its equipment with the latest in cardiac technology and put a comforting touch on the sterile hospital environment.

Each year, employees hold donation drives for holiday gifts, receiving blankets, baby booties and Beanie Babies. to help the nursing staff make the CICU feel more like a home than a hospital.

The marquee event that brings together Manheim executives, vendors and customers nationwide is the annual Golf & Tennis Tournament, Reception and Auction held each spring in Atlanta. Since its inception in 1998, this event has raised more than $4.5 million for the Michael P. Fisher CICU. In 2013, the event raised more than $185,000.

The Heart to Hearts program is truly a partnership between Manheim and its communities. From challenge drives for customers at lots in Texas to the annual tournament in Georgia, the support and dedication to helping kids find a healthier life through treatment at the Michael P. Fisher CICU continue to be at the heart of Manheim's community commitment.

Children

Mike Fisher was the former principal attorney for Manheim. His life was cut short at the age of 42 by a plane crash. The Heart To Hearts campaign was born out of grief and continues to be nurtured by our love and respect for Mike. It is dedicated to supporting the CICU that bears his name in the Sibley Heart Center of Children's. Manheim's goal is to help make the Michael P. Fisher CICU the finest facility of its kind in the world. Proceeds from the 2005 Heart To Hearts campaign will continue to bring much-needed support to the staff, families and, of course, the young patients at Children's.

What is Cox Conserves?

Cox Conserves is a companywide, long-term conservation effort that includes the following focus areas:

  1. Waterborne Paint
  2. Paint Mix Management
  3. Hazardous Waste Management
  4. Water Treatment and Conservation
  5. Energy Management
  6. Alternative Energy

Why was it created?

Cox Conserves is a national sustainability program led by Manheim's parent company Cox Enterprises, Inc. Launched in 2007, Cox Conserves seeks to reduce Cox Enterprises' energy consumption by embracing renewable forms of energy, conserving natural resources and inspiring eco-friendly behavior. The program engages each of the company's major subsidiaries: Cox Communications, Manheim, Cox Media Group and AutoTrader.com.

About each focus area:

  1. Why switch to waterborne basecoat paint?

    Working with major paint manufacturers, Manheim designed and implemented the exclusive use of waterborne basecoat painting at its operating locations. By moving from solvent to waterborne paint, Manheim is able to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent. Sixteen operating locations have switched to waterborne paint.

    • Manheim Atlanta, Manheim Baltimore-Washington, Manheim Dallas-Fort Worth, Manheim Denver
    • Manheim Georgia, Manheim Minneapolis, Manheim Nashville, Manheim Nevada
    • Manheim New England, Manheim Orlando, Manheim Pennsylvania, Manheim Phoenix
    • Manheim Riverside, Manheim San Diego, Manheim San Francisco Bay and Manheim Southern California

  2. What is paint mix management?

    Manheim has implemented a paint mix management process. The process uses less paint by creating only the amount of paint needed for each vehicle, thereby reducing waste and the release of air pollutants by 10 percent or 36 tons. Because the remaining waste is water-soluble, it is not hazardous.

  3. How is Manheim improving its hazardous waste management?

    Manheim conducts ongoing inspections of its auctions and implements processes for reducing hazardous waste at each location. Through onsite training, Manheim's employees are learning how to handle and dispose of hazardous waste in the most environmentally responsible manner possible, including the recycling of used automotive oil, antifreeze and waste paint solvent.

  4. Why implement water treatment and conservation efforts?

    As a company that details nearly 2.5 million vehicles per year, Manheim pursued an opportunity to significantly reduce water usage at its reconditioning facilities. In September 2007, working with Ashland Water Technologies, Manheim established the Manheim Water Conservation Center at Manheim Pennsylvania. The Water Conservation Center uses a sophisticated four-step wastewater treatment process that enables Manheim Pennsylvania to reduce its daily water demand by 60 percent. In June 2008, Manheim's second Water Conservation Center became operational at Manheim Georgia. This Water Conservation Center also reduces water demand by 60 percent, treating 15,000 gallons of wastewater and producing up to 9,000 gallons of high-quality reusable water daily. Both Water Conservation Centers return treated water to their municipal water treatment systems in a pretreated condition.

    Multiple locations also employ water conserving fixtures such as motion sensor faucets throughout their facilities.

  5. What is Manheim doing around energy management?

    In the fall of 2007, Manheim California partnered with Ice Energy to install eight Ice Bear® off-peak power rooftop air conditioning units. The Ice Bears generate ice at night to help cool the building during the day. The highly efficient system reduces the facility's energy costs by more than 25 percent.

    Manheim conserves energy by focusing on the outdoor lighting systems at many of its operating locations. Operations in Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Georgia, Tennessee, Michigan, Massachusetts and Virginia are using lower wattage exterior lamps with new control systems that allow the sites to either dim the fixtures to 50 percent or perform multi-fixture pole switching. These projects have saved more than 4 million KWh of energy per year.

    Manheim also is conserving energy by using variable frequency drives on air compressors. These drives take advantage of the natural fluctuations in the need for compressed air in the detail and body shop operations. At Manheim Atlanta, a variable frequency drive was installed on a 50-horsepower air compressor, and energy consumption was reduced by one-third.

  6. What is Manheim's alternative energy initiative?

    Manheim is taking advantage of solar energy solutions that capture the sun's radiant energy and convert it directly to electricity. Collectively, Manheim's solar projects prevent more than 970 tons of carbon from entering the environment. Our photovoltaic solar panel installations at Manheim Portland and Manheim New Jersey produce more than 1,375 MWh of energy annually. That's enough energy to power 125 average-size homes. Manheim Portland installed photovoltaic solar panels in February 2010. The 16,500-sq.-ft.-system covers the rooftop of the reconditioning facility and generates nearly 193 MWh of energy. It supplies up to 29 percent of the facility's energy use.

    Manheim New Jersey is home to our largest photovoltaic solar panel installations. A 42,000-sq.-ft. photovoltaic solar panel rooftop system installed on the facility's detail shop produces 136 MWh of electricity annually and generates 15 percent of the detail shop's electricity. The 104,000-sq.-ft. free-standing canopy of photovoltaic solar panels generates 52 percent of the energy consumed in the main auction facility by producing 1,048 MWh of energy annually.

    In addition, Manheim's solar thermal hot water installations at Manheim Phoenix and Manheim Georgia produce nearly 63 MWh of energy annually and supply hot water for their auto detail operations. Consisting of 24 solar thermal collectors and 1,700 gallons of solar hot water storage, Manheim Phoenix's project reduces annual energy costs for water heating and environmental impact by nearly 50 percent. Manheim Georgia's solar thermal hot water installation has 40 solar thermal collectors and 2,000 gallons of solar hot water storage. One of the largest solar thermal hot water installations in Georgia, the system reduces Manheim Georgia's annual energy costs and environmental impact by more than 50 percent.
