One of only 74 GM dealerships nationwide recognized for eco-friendly efforts
WILMINGTON, NC February 4, 2017 – Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is showing customers its environmental credentials and was named a 2017 General Motors certified Green Dealer. According to the automaker, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet has a proven track record in areas such as energy reduction, renewable energy use, water conservation efforts, recycling, onsite nature habitats and community outreach.
Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is one of only 74 dealerships GM has certified since the Green Dealer program launched in 2014. Jeff Gordon Chevrolet has a number of green practices in place on site, including:
- Energy efficient interior and exterior lighting
- Recycling of packing materials, metals, and water
- Low-emissivity windows
- Use of low-toxic cleaning products
- Energy Star equipment used throughout facility
- Sponsor of Green Car Display in downtown Wilmington
- Participation in community college’s Drive Electric Week and STEM Program
“Jeff Gordon Chevy considers its employees, customers, and the beautiful coastal community we’re fortunate to be a part of, all top priorities,” said Jacob Teets, General Sales Manager at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet. “By making little changes around our facility, recycling what we can, and upholding high standards in safety and disposal practices with chemicals, we’re both minimizing our impact on the environment and ensuring the safety of our team and customers. We take great pride in that so we plan to uphold and keep improving on it for as long as we’re in business.”
To apply for certification, dealerships complete a performance assessment that GM’s green dealer support team evaluates. The assessment covers 60 eco-friendly business practices across 10 categories. Dealerships must have a high percentage of these practices in place to earn certification. A dealer’s continuous improvement year after year will lead to ongoing annual recognition.
“GM has long been committed to being a leader in environmental stewardship, and we’re proud that our dealers share this commitment to serve and improve the communities where we work and live,” said Kurt McNeil, GM vice president of U.S. Sales Operations.
The Green Dealer program aligns with GM’s company-wide efforts to reduce its environmental footprint. GM designed the program to encourage dealers to implement green initiatives as part of their operations, create a network for sharing best practices and help other dealers begin or advance their sustainability journey.
