Honda builds green buildings as well as cars

And now an entry from the blog, AutobuildingGreen. There's a feature article in Sunday's Dayton Daily News about Honda (and other companies) who build their corporate building with a green tinge. One interesting thing you learn right in the second paragraph of the story is that Honda has a "green building program" for its American operations. Barbara van Gaasbeek, national administrator of said program, told the paper that Honda has used green-building guidelines in buildings in Oregon, Ohio and (soon) California. Some of the features of a green building include reflective roofs to decrease air conditioning costs, low-water toilets, and using ground water for heating and cooling. Note: sometimes the link to the paper takes you to the article, sometimes to a questionnaire.
