Three auto repair facilities in New York and Texas have been recognized by the Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) has as GreenLink Shops in May.
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:
Sterling McCall Nissan Collision Center, Stafford, Texas
Tedesco Auto Body, New Rochelle, N.Y.
Wayside Auto Body, Jamaica, N.Y.
“CCAR is proud to recognize these newest members of the GreenLink Shop program and their commitment to best practices in environmental and safety processes,” said Daren Fristoe, CCAR president and chief operating officer. “In addition, the GreenLink Shop designation also provides the shop with expanded messaging and branding opportunities in their marketplace, for consumers and potential employees.”
CCAR says that 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 auto service facilities and collision repair shops, with separate criteria established for each type of business.
