It’s about LEADERSHIP. It’s about CORPORATE STEWARDSHIP.
Going green… “It’s simply a matter of doing the right thing.” Our business is that of an auto dealer. Our passion is improving the lives of our customers, our employees and those who reside in the communities we serve. As one of the largest auto dealer companies in the Northwest, we welcome our corporate responsibility to be an advocate for the best environmental practices; to set the standard and pave a path for others to follow suit.
We recognize the impending need to preserve and sustain the environment and its resources. We are more than corporate stewards. We are a collective group of people stepping up to the challenge, tackling tough issues and setting change in motion. We owe it to our employees, our customers and our community to be a trusted partner and to simply do the right thing.
The Hannah’s family roots are embedded here…As a third generation, locally owned and daily operated business, Dick Hannah Dealerships have been recently recognized by the Washington CEO publication as the 22nd largest, privately owned company in Washington State. Our roots were planted when the company opened our first dealership in downtown Vancouver in 1949.
Our commitment to being a trusted community partner has remained a constant. In our effort to become a more GREEN-BASED dealership, Dick Hannah Dealerships has utilized a top down approach with support from every level of our team. This mission has become part of our culture.
Tree Planting with every vehicle we sell…
Dick Hannah Dealerships has committed to having a tree planted with every vehicle we sell. This applies to all new and pre-owned cars and trucks throughout all of our stores. We’ve partnered with the National Arbor Day Foundation and so far 82,500 trees have been planted.
Dick Hannah Dealerships GREEN Task Force
As an industry leader, we commit our talent and our resources to the preservation of the environment. We are proud to have voluntary commitment from all levels within our organization to help lead the charge and we are serious about tackling these issues head on.
Our most talented resource in this effort is our people – many of whom volunteer their time as a member of the Hannah GREEN Task Force. They are the backbone of our best practices initiatives and ensure that implementation is accomplished successfully within every function of our business.
Reduction in waste and increased recycling…
Waste Connections, Inc. is a leading provider of comprehensive waste and environmental services. Dick Hannah Dealerships is proud to partner with a company that actively pursues projects and initiatives that benefit the waste industry, the communities that they serve and the environment. We are committed to saving energy…
We are filling our GREEN pipeline with advanced technologies and initiatives. A valued partner in our efforts has been Clark Public Utilities. Our GREEN Task Force is working closely with Clark Public Utilities to evaluate power saving opportunities. A local representative toured the Dick Hannah Dealership facilities to conduct energy audits. Recommendations included motion sensor lights, timers and improvements for our HVAC system to lower energy consumption during non-business hours. The Energy Star planning tools are a part of our process in energy reduction.
