Introducing
Green Dealers

We’re working with our dealers to lower their environmental impact.

Moving
the needle

Our commitment to the environment extends well beyond our fuel-efficient vehicles. The Green Dealer Program helps Honda dealers reduce the environmental impact of their operations and lower their energy costs. With the Green Dealer Recognition Award, we put the spotlight on dealers who go the extra mile.

Why it matters

Buildings account for around 45% of Canadian energy consumption and CO2 emissions, more than any other source.

When it comes to increasing energy efficiency, existing guidelines don’t consider auto dealerships’ showrooms, service centres, car washes and body shops – all of which consume significant amounts of energy.

That’s why Honda developed an energy reduction program specifically for dealerships. We’re helping our dealers chart a course towards achieving zero net energy use, while also lowering their operating costs.

How to become a Green Dealer

1. Data Collection & Tracking

You can’t manage what you don’t measure. Tracking electricity, natural gas and water consumption on a monthly basis helps dealerships identify trends and changes over time.

2. Environmental Assessment

3. Going Greener

The recommended measures can be implemented on-site in less than a day, or can take a few months if larger changes are in order.

4. Performance Tracking & Verification

Once everything’s implemented and running smoothly, performance tracking helps Honda verify the dealership’s energy savings.

Reaching for results

We recognize dealers in the program with Silver, Gold or Platinum status, based on their verified energy reductions.
