 To be a Green Dealer means to be an environmentally sustainable dealership. Some things we focus on in our dealership include waste management, water conservation, recycling, and energy efficiency! One of our "Green Initiatives" was the installation of 6 water bottle refill stations throughout different areas of our dealership. Along with this, we've encouraged staff members to bring reusable water to work to cut down on plastic waste. In fact, we give each employee a reusable water bottle of their own upon hire to encourage the use of these fountains. To this day, we've been able to divert over 50,000 plastic water bottles from our landfills.

Another thing we are big on here at Berger is recycling. From paper to plastic, to cardboard - we have in-house recycling units that help us remain sustainable with our recyclable waste. Another item we are big on is recycling tires. Yes, you read correctly, tires! It's no secret that tires take up a great deal of space. That's why we work hard to make sure they don't end up in landfills! With the help of J and C Tires, we are able to recycle all of our old tire scraps to create products such as rubber asphalt or playground turf. 

At Berger, We are proud to hold the "Green Dealer" title! By continuously making greener choices, we're able to express our gratitude and help make a better future for our planet! 




We are proud to announce that we have been certified as part of the Green Dealer Program since 2017!

Dealers who are recognized by the GDS Green Dealer Program have met environmental sustainability requirements in a broad range of related areas including:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Water Conservation
  • Waste Management
  • Recycling systems
  • Community Outreach
  • Management Practices




We're not only environmentally conscious within our dealership but also within our community!

Another reason we are recognized as a Green Dealer is because of our environmental efforts within our community. Supporting Organizations that promote sustainability, health, and the environment is one way we help contribute to the cause. With our Berger Gives Back Campaign, we can give local businesses a voice and an outlet to share their story. 

Volunteering with the Kent County Parks at Millennium Park

Millennium Park

Volunteering with the Kent County Parks at Millennium Park was a great experience for our team. We learned about the dangers that waste and litter pose to natural habitats. Not only did we have the chance to clean up the park, but learned more about invasive species in the park and how we can do our part to protect native wildlife.  

South East Market

South East Market

The South East Market's mission is to increase access to healthy, affordable, and culturally-accepted food for our community through a sustainable and equitable lens. Owners Alita and Khara work to bring a more accessible healthy food experience to our Grand Rapids neighborhoods!

Public Thread

Public Thread

Located on the Southwest Side of Grand Rapids, Public Thread is a fashion-forward retail store that uses upcycled materials to create merchandise such as bags and backpacks. Since 2016, this Michigan-based company has worked to “design unique products that serve people, the planet and support living wage jobs.” The textiles used by Public Thread would otherwise end up in the landfill. 

Juneteenth Festival

Juneteenth Festival

Berger Chevrolet, Inc. is a proud sponsor of the Spring GR Juneteenth Festival at John Ball Zoo! By teaming up to be a “Plant Champion Partner" with H.O.P.E. Gardens, we can help provide organizations in our community with 150 organic heirloom plants to share with members in our community. This gives children, families, and community members access to fresh herbs and vegetables.

Community Gardens

Community gardens can help lower negative environmental impacts and promote sustainable agriculture and food supply. Humanity is not the only species that benefit from a community garden, animals and of course plants do as well! Improving the ecology in the area provides more habitats for different species to flourish. Community gardens also help strengthen communities through learning. Most community gardens offer learning/volunteer experiences for both children and adults, furthering the positive environmental impact for years to come! There is no downside to community gardens, and that's why we work hard to do our part!

EV Delivery Vehicles

EV Delivery Vehicles

New Growth Project

New Growth Project

With the help of our West Michigan community, New Growth Project cultivates job opportunities on their 20-acre farm for neuro-diverse employees who may otherwise struggle to find fulfilling employment. The quiet and relaxed atmosphere of the farm acts as “agritherapy” and helps these employees thrive. Did you know that 81% of individuals with an intellectual developmental disability are unemployed? New Growth Project is actively working to lower that percentage!
