Our commitment to minimizing our environmental impact is what drives our sustainability efforts.

Driving Forward Responsibly


Building and Maintenance

As we build new facilities, we strive to reduce our environmental impact by:

  • Reducing water consumption
  • Utilizing locally sourced materials
  • Installing waterless plumbing fixtures and low-flow faucets
  • Improving our air quality
  • Providing alternate energy sources.
  • New and renovated facilities include LED lighting where possible.

From coast to coast, more of our buildings are LEED certified and our corporate headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, FL is a LEED Gold Certified building.

Recycling

At AutoNation, recycling is one of the pillars of our sustainability efforts. Water, oil, tire rubber, scrap metal, paper, paper plastic, car batteries and radiator cores are recycled to substantially reduce our environmental impact. A core part of our business is the refurbishment and subsequent retail sale of used vehicles. We are significantly extending the useful life of these vehicles.

We’ve helped reduce over
