Honda Cars Philippines has named two of its dealers as "Certified Good Green Dealers" in line with the Global Honda Environmental Initiatives that aim to help the environment's preservation, conservation and protection.
The two dealers are Honda Cars Greenhills and Honda Cars Marcos Highway, two of HCPI's newest dealers from the Yuchengco Group of Companies after officially opening their doors to the public in November 2013 and January 2014, respectively. Both dealers reportedly included an environmental initiative in their sales operations, "particularly in the sale of their products, services and parts," earning for them the Step 1 requirements of HCPI's two-step Green Dealer Program.
According to HCPI, Step 1 certification activities include waste management, recycling, basic safety, use of personnel protective equipment, and compliance with legal requirements. Step 2, meanwhile, includes contribution to the local community through corporate social responsibility projects, energy and environmental conservation, economical chemical use and control, improved waste management system, improved recycling program, and complete safety and personnel protective equipment.
HCPI president and general manager Toshio Kuwahara and customer service division head Norman Millare presented the Green Dealer plaques and certificates. "We appreciate YGC's cooperation and support in fulfilling HCPI's endeavor to achieve an exceptional level of environment-friendliness in our operation," said Kuwahara. "We are looking forward to achieving 100% certification of Good Green Honda dealerships nationwide."
