Scholfield Honda Receives Environmental Leadership Award

For years, Roger Scholfield and Scholfield Honda have been working to reduce the dealership’s impact on the environment. Now, their efforts have been recognized through the Green Dealer Program.

Scholfield Honda in Wichita, Kansas, has been named a Honda Environmental Leadership Silver Award winner for reducing energy consumption by 17.9%. They’re the only dealer in the Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas area to receive the award.

To become a Honda Green Dealer, Scholfield Honda had to track the dealership’s monthly consumption of water, electricity and natural gas. The team also had to undergo an environmental assessment by an energy efficiency expert and implement the recommended improvements.

The environmental best practices Scholfield Honda has already completed include replacing inefficient shop lights with high-efficiency fluorescent fixtures, reducing exterior lights by about 60% at 10 pm each night, using water drip lines for 75% of the dealership’s landscaping irrigation, and creating a paperless system for archiving records. The dealership has also established a comprehensive recycling program.

About the Honda Green Dealer Program

Buildings use nearly 40% of all energy consumed in the U.S. and produce more than a third of the CO2 emissions across the country. Because car dealerships usually have showrooms, body shops, service centers and car washes, Honda recognized that different solutions were needed to help lower operating costs and reduce energy use.

Honda’s Green Dealer Program was developed to help Honda dealers around the U.S. reduce the impact on the environment caused by their daily operations. By measuring how much less energy and water they use, dealerships like Scholfield Honda can show tangible results of the steps they’ve taken to implement “green” business practices and lower their energy costs. Many of the practices recommended by the Green Dealer Program could also be used by businesses in other industries who wish to lower their energy use and operating costs while reducing their environmental footprint.
