HRA considers environmental factors in each Honda and Acura product it designs and develops. HRA takes every opportunity to reduce a product’s total environmental footprint from its component design and selection of materials to its impact at the end of its life. Accordingly, HRA engineers also consider dismantling complexity, re-manufacturing components and minimizing substances of concern.
In addition to our work on new-vehicle design and development, HRA engages in research programs to advance alternative fuel technologies including natural gas, hydrogen fuel cells and electric vehicles. In 2001, HRA began developing the first solar-powered, hydrogen production and fueling station. In 2010, the Honda Solar Hydrogen Station prototype was completed.
HRA’s scale wind tunnel in the Ohio Center plays an important role in further improving the aerodynamic efficiency of new vehicles, enhancing Honda’s global R&D capabilities and contributing to Honda’s focus on fuel efficiency leadership.

HRA works not only toward developing environmentally-friendly products. It also strives to minimize the impact of daily operations to the environment. In fact, several HRA facilities have been designated as LEED Gold Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. In addition, several facilities have achieved Zero Waste to Landfill, meaning no waste generated from within these facilities ends in landfills.
Being LEED Gold Certified means receiving 60-79 points out of 100 over five categories including: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Materials & Resources, and Indoor Environmental Quality.
