Our commitment to minimizing our environmental impact is what drives our sustainability efforts.

Driving Forward Responsibly

Building and Maintenance

As AutoNation builds new facilities, we strive to reduce our environmental impact by taking careful measures:

  • Reducing water consumption
  • Utilizing locally sourced materials
  • Installing waterless plumbing fixtures and low-flow faucets
  • Improving our air quality
  • Providing alternate energy sources.
  • New and renovated facilities include LED lighting where possible.

More of our buildings are LEED certified coast to coast, and our corporate headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, FL, is a LEED Gold Certified building.


Recycling is essential to AutoNation. That's why it's one of the pillars of our sustainability efforts. Water, oil, tire rubber, scrap metal, paper, paper plastic, car batteries, and radiator cores are recycled to reduce our environmental impact. In addition, a core part of our business is the refurbishment and subsequent retail sale of used vehicles to extend their useful life significantly.
