It's not just Ford's cars and trucks that are going green; its dealerships are as well.
Ford announced a partnership with Rocky Mountain Institute, an energy-efficiency think tank for increased sustainability, on Sunday at the 2010 National Automobile Dealers Association Convention.
Part of the 'Go Green' Dealership Sustainability Program is to help dealers implement cost-effective ways to improve the energy-efficiency of their facilities.
Although the announcement did not give any examples of ways dealers can become more sustainable, it did reveal that dealers participating in the program will get a comprehensive energy assessment from sustainability experts at Ford. Afterward, Ford and the dealer will design a unique program to meet the needs of the dealer. According to Ford, its solutions are wide-ranging and can be implemented for dealers with existing facilities as well as dealers who are constructing new facilities.
