Vista Dealership Recognized With Environmental Leadership Award
The Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Vista 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. They are one of only 50 Honda dealers to receive this award and the only Honda dealer in Southern California to earn the Platinum Environmental Leadership Award.
The Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Vista 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 Dave Conant, Chairman of the CAR Group and operator of the Norm Reeves Dealerships. “Our guests already benefit from owning a fuel-efficient Honda vehicle, but now they have the extra peace of mind knowing that in addition to providing a Super Experience, Norm Reeves is committed to reducing our environmental impact in the community.”
As part of the CAR Group, the Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Vista has taken numerous steps to reduce its environmental impact and to earn the Honda Environmental Leadership Award, including installing LED lighting and energy-efficient windows. They’ve also planted native landscaping and invested in recycling and waste reduction.
Honda introduced its new 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.
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.
