Commitment to the Environment

As a member of the community, it is our responsibility to help safeguard the environment. At Step One Automotive Group, we participate in multiple initiatives throughout the year to clean beaches, pick up trash along highways and other projects.

Our employees have embraced these projects as well with their enthusiasm and commitment throughout the year. We often partner with the 33d Maintenance Group on these team projects to clean highways and beaches.

2020 will see new internal projects to help eliminate single use plastics and other environmental initiatives.

Colonel Ed Hubbard

Edward L. Hubbard, internationally known speaker, author, and photographer, is dedicated to helping others overcome any obstacle, handle any ordeal, and reach any goal by developing the correct state of mind. Building upon his adverse experiences during more than six and ½ years of captivity in North Vietnam, Ed conveys a positive message for personal growth.

Step One Automotive Group has invited Colonel Hubbard to share his message with our employees at in-store seminars at every location.
