Specifically developed for the auto industry, the EcoDrive Program addresses the automobile as a major source of Greenhouse gas emissions and offers Dealers the unique ability to really make a difference through the offer of a carbon neutral drive.

Team One, Canada's Leading F&I Training Program provider is pleased to announce EcoDrive, an innovative new program to reduce the environmental impact from driving while providing dealerships with a refreshing and much needed unique value offering. The EcoDrive Program promises to reward both car buyers and sellers alike, but the real winner will be the planet.

With EcoDrive, Auto dealerships across the country are making a commitment to neutralize the driving related impact of every vehicle that leaves their lot. As automobile emissions are one of the largest contributors towards greenhouse gases, the Program's efforts could mean a significant reduction in the overall impact of this valued Canadian activity.

Dealers on the Program purchase carbon offsets that balance off all the emissions a driver will create over a year of their vehicle ownership. The offsets are supplied by LivClean, a top ranked carbon offset retailer by the David Suzuki/Pembina Institute. LivClean invests in emission-reducing projects that include activities like renewable wind energy farms, diverting waste from landfill, and using alternative fuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The program also aims to educate drivers on behavioral changes that will reduce driving related emissions like anti-idling, proper car maintenance and eco-fuel choices such as ethanol blend gasoline.

"As driving is a person's single most polluting activity in a day, the EcoDrive Program goes straight to one of the major sources of greenhouse gases. This program not only helps the environment, it provides a solution to help reduce daily emissions," stated Paul DeVries, President of LivClean.

Lindsey Brooker, of Team One agreed, "We are excited to bring this much need product to the industry by way of our dealer network. We hope they will embrace this program to help eliminate greenhouse gases now and in the future. People today are worried about the impact their driving is having on our planet. Now, through our dealer network they can purchase a vehicle knowing that they are taking a positive step towards helping our environment."

Both dealers and manufacturers who were given a sneak peak of the program are eagerly anticipating its launch. According to one Automotive Executive, "You have 'hit the nail on the head', as this program provides the ability for dealerships and manufacturers to not only help reduce the environmental negative impact of every vehicle they sell, but it creates a positive marketing strategy that will not only set a dealership apart from their competitors but allow the dealer to quantify their marketing dollars."

When joining the EcoDrive Program, Dealers receive showroom marketing collateral that helps create an eco-positive purchase experience for their buyers. Car owners are issued a certificate directly from LivClean confirming the carbon offset purchase on their behalf, along with a vehicle decal and key tag to announce their eco-driving status.
