Honda offers sustainability guide for dealers

Honda Power Equipment launched a new program designed to support Honda Power Equipment, Honda Engines and Honda Marine product dealers that participate in the company’s global sustainability initiatives.

Honda has created an all new Eco-Guide to complement the dealer program, illustrating practices Honda dealers can undertake that will dovetail with and extend the range of Honda environmental strategies.

The Eco-Guide offers information about small and large initiatives dealers can adopt to create environmental efficiencies. The guide provides a comprehensive list of recycling, energy savings, and heating, cooling, water and community conservation initiatives, along with ways for dealerships to implement them.

Printable files of posters and labels accompany the Eco-Guide to help dealers visually highlight environmental efforts to customers and community members. The guide also includes links to national and state environmental resources that are available to help dealers with their action plans.

“Whether we are manufacturers, distributors, retailers or consumers, we all are part of one continuous supply chain sharing one planet,” Honda Power Equipment vice president Scott Conner said in a statement. “The Eco-Guide will help our dealers carry out and extend the Honda environmental commitment by providing simple ways to make a real difference in our shared environment. Collectively we can magnify our efforts to produce tremendous positive results for generations to come.”

Honda is making the Eco-Guide available to dealers exclusively through its company intranet.
