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.
Honda helps dealers become more green
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 Green Dealer program extends to all of Honda’s product lines; auto, powersports and power equipment.
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.
