The Environment Matters!

AAA recognizes the importance of conservation and the impact an organization of our size can have on the environment. As a result, AAA educates drivers on the maintenance needed to extend a vehicle's time on the road as well as ways to conserve fuel and reduce emissions.

Raising public awareness is only part of AAA's commitment to greater sustainability for the planet. The idea of being “green” is integrated into many of our business practices. Since 1992, AAA has collaborated with the National Parks and other similar groups to promote ecotourism. Two automotive initiatives, AAA's battery program and Car Care Month, offer ways for members and the public to operate and maintain their vehicles in an environmentally conscious manner.

On a state and national level, AAA supports legislation that encourages drivers and industries to minimize the impact of vehicles on the environment. Many of our clubs have moved to paperless systems both with our members and around the office. Employees across AAA also volunteer for a wide range of environmental activities, from cleanups to tree plantings to events promoting biking.

We've also expanded our presence in the electric vehicle space by offering mobile charging to our members in select cities, providing a variety of education resources (check out our new site - and increasing the number of certified repair technicians at our Approved Auto Repair shops and Car Care centers who are skilled to work on these vehicles.

Recycling Matters! Especially When It Comes to Your Car's Battery

Unrecycled batteries can result in large quantities of lead and sulfuric acid being discharged into the environment creating health, safety and fire hazards for humans and animals alike.

The AAA battery program is a year-round effort that collects and recycles as many old batteries as are installed annually. Last year alone, AAA recycled over 2.5 million batteries with the lifetime total of the program topping 30 million.

For more information about the AAA battery program, visit, or contact the club in your local area.
