S/P2 Introduces First of 12 Sustainability Courses

The 12-course package focusing on sustainable business practices for automotive repair facilities will provide information about how going green is a smart financial decision, as well as good for the environment.

S/P2 has announced that it will be launching a 12-course package in October 2016 focusing on sustainable business practices for automotive repair facilities. The courses provide information about how going green is a smart financial decision, as well as good for the environment.

In anticipation of the October launch, S/P2 has added one of the 12 courses, “Green Strategies: 10 Sustainability Measures Shops Can Tackle Today,” into its current S/P2 Collision and S/P2 Mechanical subscriptions at no additional cost.

S/P2 created these courses in conjunction with the Green Garage Challenge, an initiative to help automotive facilities receive government credit and matching funds for reducing their carbon footprint. Shops that enroll in the Green Garage Challenge program receive the S/P2 Collision or S/P2 Mechanical subscription and access to the 12 sustainability courses included in their Green Garage Challenge membership.

“It’s exciting for us to do a pre-launch announcement and to provide one of the sustainability courses as a free value-add to our customers,” said Kyle Holt, president of S/P2. “Shops have known about the environmental impact of sustainable practices for years now, but this is really about profit. Every dollar shop owners save by implementing green practices, or gain by marketing themselves as a green shop, hits the bottom line.”

Steven Schillinger, president of Green Garage Challenge, added, “Many shops don’t realize that there are big dollars available to help this industry go green. When a shop implements anything – for example, changing out old light bulbs for energy-efficient versions – that shop could be eligible for matching fund credits they can invest in equipment, supplies and marketing. S/P2’s sustainability courses help train all of a shop’s staff, leading to more credits back in the pockets of the shops. That’s why we’ve launched our initiative with S/P2.”
