Honda of Santa Fe Earns Honda Environmental Leadership Award for Reducing Its Environmental Impact

10% reduction in energy use, conservation of water, and recycling at core of "Green Dealer" effort

Honda of Santa Fe has earned the Honda Environmental Leadership Award and has been recognized by American Honda Motor Co. Inc., as a leader in the company's effort to reduce the environmental impact of Honda dealerships in communities around the nation.

 Honda of Santa Fe earned the award for achieving specific environmental targets based on a rigorous points system that includes reducing total energy use at the dealership by at least 10 percent. 

"We're extremely proud to be part of Honda's global effort to help preserve and protect the environment," said Jonathan Burns. "Our customers already benefit from owning a fuel-efficient Honda vehicle, but now they have the extra peace of mind, knowing that they're doing business with a local Honda dealer that is committed to reducing its environmental impact in the community."

Honda introduced its voluntary Green Dealer program to its U.S. dealers in the fall of 2011. The company uses a third party evaluator to conduct environmental audits of participating dealers and recommend strategies for reducing their energy use. To date, participating dealers across the company's automotive, power equipment and powersports lines have collectively reduced CO2 emissions by more than 58,000 metric tons and saved nearly $12.5 million in energy costs.

Over the past three decades, Honda has been working to reduce the environmental impact of its products, manufacturing and logistics operations, and facilities in North America. These initiatives are reported annually in the company's North American Environmental Report.  Expanding its environmental initiatives to its dealer body is the logical next step in the company's effort to reduce waste, energy use and CO2 emissions across the full spectrum of its operations and throughout the lifecycle of Honda products, including at the point of sale.
