CCAR and Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes to Promote ‘GreenLink Shop’ Program to A-Plus Network

CCAR’s ‘GreenLink Shop’ recognition goes to collision repair facilities that demonstrate environmental awareness and stewardship.


The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) announced that it will partner with Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes to promote the GreenLink Shop designation for collision repair centers in Sherwin-Williams’ A-Plus Network and EcoLean certified facilities across the United States.

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.

“We are excited to bring the benefits of CCAR’s GreenLink Shop recognition program to our A-Plus Network Members,” said Brandon Devis, A-Plus Network program manager. “Our members continue to look for ways to set them apart from their respective competition and this is a great consumer driver benefit. There is a natural synergy between the GreenLink Shop recognition and our EcoLean training we provide through our A-Plus University workshops.”


Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes A-Plus Network has trained hundreds of collision repair professionals through its A-Plus University and EcoLean workshops. The EcoLean program has been developed for collision shop owners and managers who are interested in leveraging the power of lean production as well as business solutions that reduce environmental waste.

According to Devis, the program is a huge success for the company and its customers, selling out workshops across the United States.

“The opportunity to work with Sherwin-Williams and the shop owners and managers that comprise its A-Plus Network is an extraordinary one for CCAR,” said Daren Fristoe, CCAR president and chief operating officer. “As an industry leader in automotive finishes, Sherwin-Williams represents recognized excellence in quality products and services, and we are proud to play a role in recognizing its A-Plus Network and EcoLean program.”  


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 mechanical service facilities and collision repair shops, with separate criteria established for each type of business.
