Langley, BC – The New Car Dealers Association of BC (NCDA) is the recipient of the 2019 Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for Environmental Leadership. However, it’s an honour the Association is quick to share with their new car dealer members, the provincial government and consumers – all of whom have helped transform BC into a national leader in clean energy vehicle adoption.
“BC’s New Car Dealers have long been at the forefront of environmental transformations, providing the opportunity for BC consumers to consider more environmentally friendly choices which has helped British Columbia become known for being an environmentally progressive province,” said NCDA President and CEO Blair Qualey. “No single group or association can achieve success in isolation, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Provincial Government and British Columbians to create environmentally sustainable transport options.”
This prestigious award recognizes the partnership between the Province of British Columbia and NCDA, which administers the highly successful CEVforBC™ Program on behalf of the government, through which BC has become a leader in electric vehicle adoption and the envy of other jurisdictions.
New car dealers play a pivotal role in reducing the percentage of B.C.’s greenhouse gases from light duty vehicles (14%). Through the NCDA’s partners such as the BC Scrap-It Program, over 40,000 older and higher polluting vehicles have been scrapped. BC’s new car dealers also play an important role in general education and awareness for consumers.
The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce’s Business Excellence Awards celebrate business excellence in the Langley community, help recognize businesses, businesspeople and non-profit organizations who demonstrate outstanding innovation, growth, ethics, customer service and contributions to the community. “The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce first presented the Environmental Leadership award as part of the annual Business Excellence Awards in 2010” explained Colleen Clark, CEO. “The award recognizes businesses that exhibit significant proactive concern for, and proven success with, conducting better practices to decrease environmental impact. We are proud to add the New Car Dealers Association of BC to our list of worthy recipients.”
The NCDA would like to thank the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce for this honour and the Province of BC for their ongoing support. For more information please visit: https://www.langleychamber.com/business-excellence-awards
