October 18, 2021 (Washington, D.C.) - Fitzgerald Auto Malls has been awarded the "Auto Dealer of the Year" by the Greater Washington Region Clean Cities Coalition (GWRCCC) in recognition of its environmental practices and commitment to Electric Vehicles (EV).
Fitzgerald Auto Mall was the first automotive dealership group in North America to become ISO 14001 certified, the global standard for Environmental Management Systems. In addition to being a member of the Green Power Leadership Club with EPA, Fitzgerald installed a Solar Canopy at their Gaithersburg location that is over an acre. After one year of full operation, the Solar Canopy offset 82% of their power consumption. In addition, for the fifth year in a row, Fitzgerald Auto Mall's solid waste recycling percentage increased, reaching 85%, which is more than twice the national average for businesses."We are honored to be recognized by the Coalition for our commitment to sustainability and supporting the community by reducing our environmental footprint. We thank our associates and customers for their support of our commitment to energy efficiency and achieving our recycling goals," said Jack Fitzgerald, Chairman of Fitzgerald Auto Malls.
The Greater Washington Region Clean Cities Coalition is one of nearly 80 coalitions in the US that fosters economic, environmental, and energy security by working locally to advance affordable, domestic transportation fuels, energy efficient mobility systems, and other fuel-saving technologies and practices. www.gwrccc.org
