LAcarGUY forms internal "Green Team"

March 17th, 2010 by

In January of 2010, LAcarGUY created an internal “Green Team” to encourage, inspire and educate its 800+ employees about reducing our individual and corporate carbon footprint. Formed by LAcarGUY’s “Manager of the Environment”, Alisha Auringer, the “Green Team” has developed green advocates from each of our ten dealerships and body shop.

Every Green Team member ensures our eco-policies are being carried out, informs employees about upcoming events and is a liaison between the dealerships and the Manager of the Environment. Members are also tasked with presenting ideas on how to reduce their dealerships footprint as well as events that would should participate in. These ideas are presented and discussed at the monthly green team meetings as well as determining an eco-activity that is promoted to all employees.

Past Green Team activities include a company-wide Christmas tree recycling campaign and Arbor Day Tree planting. Upcoming plans include a Spring Recycling campaign, an Earth Day event at Lexus Santa Monica and creating a green handbook for all employees.

Mike Sullivan personally created “The Manager of the Environment” position to focus on reducing our organizational carbon footprint, develop green educational programs and to grow relationships with local green organizations. The LAcarGUY Family of Dealerships are recognized around the Los Angeles area for being involved with Sustainability, Environmental and other “Green Movement” efforts.
