Green Dealer Program
We know that part of our responsibility is to provide support to our business partners who want to reduce their environmental footprint as well. That’s why American Honda’s ‘Green Dealer’ program was launched. It is designed to help independently owned and operated Honda and Acura dealers in the U.S. reduce their environmental impact.
Green Dealer Program nears 500 participants
Nearly 500 Honda and Acura automobile dealers along with Honda motorcycle and power equipment dealers are enrolled in the Honda Green Dealer Program, which helps find ways to reduce the environmental footprint of their operations.
Honda and Acura dealers earn environmental awards
Honda and Acura give out Environmental Leadership Awards to dealers who have reduced their impact on the environment. A 10% reduction in energy can reduce their carbon footprint by an average of 66 tons of CO2 per year.
The first electric grid neutral dealer
Rossi Honda in Vineland, New Jersey was the first electric grid neutral dealership in the U.S. The term electric grid neutral means that a dealership generates as much or more renewable energy than it takes from the grid. This was accomplished using solar panels, LED lighting and other energy conservation measures.
