Honda Dealer Earns Top Green Award
The Motorcars Honda dealership in Cleveland Heights, OH has integrated some innovative environmental features into its dealership, which is why it has received the Honda Green Dealer Program’s top honor, the Platinum Environmental Leadership Award
Among its many environmental attributes, Motorcars Honda has the largest singular solar panel at a U.S. dealership in the country, with beams made from recycled cars.
In addition, the dealership utilizes reclaimed water and rain water in its car wash. Skylights and ceiling fans help to reduce energy consumption and the dealership loans its customers bicycles to use while their cars are being serviced.
The Honda Green Dealer program provides independently-owned U.S. Honda and Acura dealers with new tools to evaluate and measurably reduce energy and water use, saving money while enhancing their environmentally-responsible business operations.
A major component of the program, and a key to its success, is the Green Dealer Guide. This unique resource provides step-by-step guidance to implement systems and technologies that help dealers achieve their carbon and water reduction goals.
