Moving the Needle
Our commitment to the Power of Something Greater extends well beyond our fuel-efficient vehicles. The Honda Green Dealer program is designed to help dealers reduce the environmental impact of their operations and lower their energy costs. With the Green Dealer Recognition Award, Honda has put the spotlight on dealers who go the extra mile towards decreasing their environmental impact.
As part of our commitment to our earth, Honda Canada, and our town of Vernon, we will continue the Green journey by ensuring that we are doing everything possible to reduce our carbon footprint while providing a high-quality environment for both our employees and customers.

Why it Matters
Providing heat and power to buildings accounts for around 46% of Canadian energy consumption and CO2 emissions, more than any other source. It’s more important than ever to take measures to help reduce the environmental impact of commercial buildings.

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