The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) announced that California Color Body & Paint of Chico, Calif., has been recognized as a “GreenLink Shop.”
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.
“Everyone here at California Color is very excited and honored to be acknowledged by CCAR for our continuous efforts on behalf of the planet,” said Rosie Vance, manager of California Color Body & Paint.
California Color Body & Paint is a participant in the GEICO Auto Repair Xpress (ARX) program. CCAR and GEICO are partnering to promote the “GreenLink Shop” designation for GEICO’s ARX facilities across the United States.
“We salute California Color Body & Paint on joining the ranks of GreenLink Shops,” said Daren Fristoe, CCAR president and chief operating officer. “Their performance demonstrates that a focus on best practices in environmental and safety concerns can be part of a successful shop’s business plan.”
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.
