Subaru Pacific is the only dealership in California to receive the Subaru Eco-Friendly award. The dealership has reached Eco-Friendly Dealer status by meeting five key areas in successful sustainability:

Energy Efficiency
Our dealership reduced energy consumption by installing devices such as occupancy sensors, compact florescent light bulbs and programmable thermostats.
 
Water Conservation
Our dealership reduced water consumption by installing low flow faucet & toilets and water efficient landscaping.
 
Recycling
By recycling material such as paper, metal, cardboard and plastic, our dealership helps divert massive amounts of material from landfills.
 
Waste Management
Our dealership ensures proper disposal of waste material including oil, coolant, batteries and tires.
 
Community Involvement
Caring about the environment extends beyond the dealership. We are involved in community programs focused on preserving and protecting the environment.
 
Teamwork
For our dealership to achieve Subaru Eco-Friendly Dealer status, we organized an environmental team comprised of individuals from each department. The team planned and implemented the necessary changes and upgrades to our facility.
