At Keema, we love being a part of our local community. We’re also committed to looking for new ways to minimise our impact on the environment. Have a look below at some of the activities we’re involved in:
Every drop counts...
Sometimes while wandering around our showrooms or service centres, you might notice a sign on our cars that says that they're a little dusty. Each of our showrooms has rainwater tanks attached - and that's what we use to wash our vehicles. We don't wash our cars every day, because a little dust never hurt anyone. However, when you take delivery of your car, it will be gleaming!
Green to be clean...
Our Springwood location has been designed to create a minimum impact on the environment. With its hanger roof, the showroom remains very cool, without the need for air-conditioning. Instead, there is natural flow-through ventilation with automatically opening sensor-controlled windows. Even in the Brisbane summer, the showroom stays cool!
Our Springwood and Cleveland branches have been recognised for their green design and practices, and have received green business ratings from their local councils.
An intrepid group of Keema staff have signed up to take part in the Kokoda Challenge 2010, which takes place on 17 and 18 July. The event sees teams of four take part in a 96km trek through the Gold Coast hinterland. The challenge raises money for the Kokoda Youth Foundation and the Keema team – the Keema Kokoders – hope to complete the journey in less than 20 hours. Click here to support the team – and make sure you do by 29/6/2010.
We like our sport...
...so you may notice us around at a few sporting venues in Brisbane. We are proud sponsors of the Mt Gravatt Bowls Club, and love to bowl (although sometimes we bowl more potatoes than yard ons!). We also sponsor the Redlands Rugby Union and Recreation Club in Cleveland. Go the Muddies!
Sand and balls...
If the person in the photo to the left looks familiar, that's because she's Olympic gold medal volleyball player Natalie Cook. We've been working with Natalie for many years now. In return for sponsoring her Sandstorm Beach Volleyball Club and providing her with a Hyundai Santa Fe (great for carting around a mountain of volleyballs!), she works with our Keema team to coach them towards their professional and personal goals - and keeps them fit with volleyball training!
