CCAR Announces 'GreenLink Shop' Program

CCAR Announces ‘GreenLink Shop’ Program

Recognition program to promote consumer confidence and reward excellence in environmental, health and safety stewardship throughout the automotive repair industry.

The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR), as an extension of its CCAR-GreenLink Environmental Compliance Assistance Center and S/P2 (Safety and Pollution Prevention) E-learning Program, has announced the introduction of its new “GreenLink Shop” recognition program for auto repair facilities.
The GreenLink Shop status is designed to promote consumer confidence in local automotive repair facilities’ environmental and safety awareness and stewardship.
“The GreenLink Shop program was created, in part, in response to requests from repair facilities for automotive industry recognition of their collective commitment to workplace safety and environmental best practices,” said Daren Fristoe, CCAR president and chief operating officer. “That need, combined with a growing focus on ‘green’ businesses by consumers, forms the foundation of the program and allows participating businesses to distinguish themselves from the competition for repair work, staffing and community outreach.”   
Businesses receiving the GreenLink Shop recognition must maintain high standards of excellence in environmental, health and safety (EHS) operations. To qualify, participating repair facilities will be required to meet certain criteria in the categories of business operations, employee training, safety compliance and environmental management. The CCAR initiative will recognize both auto mechanical service facilities and collision repair shops, with separate criteria established for each type of business.
“The GreenLink Shop program represents the next step in CCAR’s 15-year journey to strengthen the auto repair industry’s awareness and understanding of environmental and safety compliance,” adds Lin Peacock, CCAR chairman and NADA senior director, insurance plans and programs. “We look forward to working with all segments of the industry on this valuable service.”
