The Alabama chapter of The Nature Conservancy took note of that, and held a quarterly board meeting at HMA’s plant last week as special guests of Honda. The group’s state director Chris Oberholster said, “It’s such a key part of them doing business, it’s just a natural fit.”
The environmental group has been working to protect the environment since 1951, and has been successful in protecting millions of acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide—in all 50 states and more than 30 countries. Members are committed to addressing threats to fresh water, ocean, conservation lands and climate change.
Honda recycles tons of metal, cardboard and plastic each year, reuses shipping pallets, and is meticulous about operating in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner. That’s in addition to the company’s commitment to building environmentally friendly vehicles.
HMA has also been supportive of the Conservancy, donating a Ridgeline pickup for their work in the state and funding and participating in a number of their activities.
It’s great to see corporate interests and environmental interests working hand in hand, and inspiring to see it happening here in our part of the country.
