The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) announces that Pohanka Collision Center of Chantilly, Va., is the first automotive repair facility in the nation to be recognized as a GreenLink Shop.
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.
“It is an honor for Pohanka Collision Center to be recognized as the first in the nation to achieve GreenLink Shop status,” said Mike Moore, general manager. “Pohanka Collision Centers are committed to exceeding our consumer and employee expectations in environmental, health and safety operations as part of our ‘Do It Right the First Time’ philosophy.”
“We congratulate the team at Pohanka Collision Center of Chantilly on approval as the first GreenLink Shop Program recipient,” said Daren Fristoe, CCAR president and chief operating officer. “With this achievement, Pohanka further solidifies its reputation as an industry leader in environmental and safety awareness and ‘raises the bar’ for the marketplace. Such high levels of commitment and dedication to consistent and compliant performance are to be commended.”
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.
