The GreenLink Shop status, an extension of CCAR’s CCAR-GreenLink Environmental Compliance Assistance Center and S/P2 Safety and Pollution Prevention E-learning Program, is designed to promote consumer confidence in local automotive repair facilities’ environmental/safety awareness and stewardship.

The new GreenLink Shops are:
Cole’s Collision Center, Colonie, N.Y.
Cole’s Spa Body Works, Ballston Spa, N.Y.
Cole’s Spa Body Works, Wilton, N.Y.
Cox Auto Body Center, Bradenton, Fla.
Don Valens’ Autobody, Clovis, Calif.
Earl’s Body Shop, Beaufort, S.C.
IFM Collision Center, Bedford Hills, N.Y.
Sawgrass Ford Collision Center, Sunrise, Fla.


“We are pleased to begin the second year of the GreenLink Shop program with such an outstanding group of facilities,” said CCAR President and Chief Operating Officer Daren Fristoe. “They are evidence of the growing recognition in our industry that a commitment to workplace safety and environmental best practices play a key role in business operations.”

Repair facilities seeking the GreenLink Shop recognition must maintain high standards of excellence in environmental, health and safety (EHS) practices in four categories: business operations, employee training, safety compliance and environmental management. The CCAR initiative recognizes both auto service facilities and collision repair shops, with separate criteria established for each type of business.
