Our customers already benefit from owning fuel-efficient Acura vehicles, but now they have the extra piece of mind, knowing they’re doing business with an Acura Dealership that is committed to reducing its environmental impact in the community.
Kansas City, Missouri (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
Kansas City Acura Dealer, Jay Wolfe Acura, has earned the Acura Environmental Leadership Award and has been recognized by Acura as a leader in the company’s effort to reduce the environmental impact of dealerships in communities around the nation.
Jay Wolfe Acura 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.
“With today being Earth Day, we’re extremely proud to be part of Acura’s effort to help preserve and protect the environment,” said Lee Hubbard, Managing Partner at Jay Wolfe Acura, “Our customers already benefit from owning fuel-efficient Acura vehicles like the Acura TLX and Acura MDX, but now they have the extra piece of mind, knowing they’re doing business with an Acura Dealership that is committed to reducing its environmental impact in the community.”
Jay Wolfe Acura has taken numerous steps to reduce its environmental impact and to earn the Acura Environmental Leadership Award, including 100% use of Energy Efficient LED lighting through out the interior and exterior of the building. Acura 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, Acura’s parent company 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 Acura products, including at the point of sale.

Acura Environmental Leadership
Honda and its Acura luxury automobile division are leaders in the development of leading-edge technologies to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. American Honda, the U.S. parent company, has led the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) rankings of overall vehicle environmental performance since 2000. The company leads all automakers with 12 LEED-Certified "Green Buildings" in North America, and is producing products in North America with virtually zero waste to landfill.
In 2006, the Honda Motor Company became the first automaker to announce voluntary CO2 emissions reduction targets for its global fleet of automobile, power sports and power equipment products and its global network of manufacturing plants. Today, the company is striving for even greater reductions in CO2 emissions that contribute to global climate change, while also working to minimize waste, water use, and the total environmental footprint of its operations worldwide.
