Honda-LogoTORRANCE, Calif., May 12, 2015 – Building on the success of the Honda Environmental Leadership Program through its automobile dealers’ reduced environmental footprint, American Honda today announced the voluntary program’s expansion to include its powersports dealers, as well as power-equipment dealers, marine dealers and engine distributors.

Honda provides strategic counseling in areas such as lighting, heating, cooling, water fixtures and recycling. The Honda “Green Dealer” Guide, a 93-page energy-efficiency roadmap available for download at greendealer.honda.com, provides additional guidance. Dealers and distributors who quantifiably reduce their environmental impact can also qualify to earn a Honda Environmental Leadership Award, introduced in 2011 as a part of the company’s comprehensive approach to environmentally responsible operations. Once participating dealers have completed upgrades, results are verified by a third-party evaluator, and a participating dealer’s score can qualify it for one of three achievement levels—Silver, Gold or Platinum. Sixty-five automobile dealers have reduced their energy consumption by 10 percent or more in the past three years, and one has achieved “Electric Grid Neutral” status. (“Electric Grid Neutral” means the dealership produces as much as or more energy from renewable energy sources than it consumes from its local electric utility over a one-year period.)
