In North America’s green race, Honda has overtaken all other automakers. It now leads all others with 11 certified green buildings in North America. Recently, both Honda’s North American power train division in Anna, OH and their Canadian headquarters in Ontario bagged LEED certification from the non-profit Green Building Council, taking the automaker’s LEED-certified total to 11 facilities in North America.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is given for buildings that are designed to minimize energy use and carbon footprint. LEED certification has become a popular badge, with automakers seeking the designation for facilities around the world.
Honda’s first LEED-certified site in North America was the company’s Portland, OR parts warehouse, which earned the coveted designation back in 1999. Way to go, Honda.
