HONDA Cars Phils. Inc. (HCPI) announced it recently recognized Honda Cars Greenhills (HCGH) and Honda Cars Marcos (HCMH) as “Certified Good Green Dealers” in a ceremony held on May 6.
HCGH started its operations on November 14, 2013, while HCMH began on January 26. Both are the newest additions to the Yuchengco Group of Companies’ (YGC) Honda dealership network.
HCPI said the two new dealerships integrated environmental initiatives in selling its products, services and parts. HCGH and HCMH were able to complete the Step 1 requirements of HCPI’s Green Dealer Program.
HCPI explained that in order for a dealership to complete the certification, it must effectively implement the activities of a two-step program. Step 1 activities include waste management, recycling, basic safety, use of personnel protective equipment and compliance to legal requirements. Step 2 activities include contribution to the local community through CSR projects, energy and environmental conservation, economical chemical use and control, improved waste management system, improved recycling program and complete safety and personnel protective equipment.
The Green Dealer plaque and certificate were presented by HCPI President and General Manager Toshio Kuwahara and Customer Service Division Head Norman Millare.“We appreciate YGC’s cooperation and support in fulfilling HCPI’s endeavor to achieve an exceptional level of environment friendliness in our operation. We are looking forward to achieving 100-percent certification of good green Honda Cars dealerships nationwide,” Kuwahara said.
