Cox Automotive presented its annual Leader in Sustainability Award to Mark Miller Subaru, a dealership with two locations – Midtown and South Towne – serving communities along the Wasatch Front in north-central Utah and throughout the state.
Mark Miller Subaru was the first dealership in Utah to be certified in the Subaru Eco-Friendly Retailer Program. As a Benefit Corporation it’s charter places the planet and people ahead of profits and embraces the broader Subaru Loves the Earth initiative by maintaining eco-friendly facilities and operations. Both Mark Miller Subaru Midtown and South Towne stores are solar, with 60% of the power coming from over 1,200 solar panels on the two rooftops. Eco-friendly materials are also used throughout the facilities. Water conservation is another focus area, with low-flow faucets and toilets in the showrooms and car washes that fully recycle the water used (saving 75 gallons of water per car wash). In partnership with Cox Automotive, Mark Miler Subaru’s entire F&I process is now digital offering paperless deals that reduce the dealership’s carbon footprint and save them money.
