OVERLAND PARK, KAN. – Five collision repair facilities have received recognition from the Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR®) in its GreenLink Shop program, the organization announced recently.
The newly-recognized shops are:
Carubba Collision, Buffalo, N.Y.
Carubba Collision, Hamburg, N.Y.
Carubba Collision, Tonawanda, N.Y.
Carubba Collision, Wheatfield, N.Y.
Jimmy Rivers Body Shop, Inc., Columbia, S.C.
“We are proud to recognize the newest recipients of the GreenLink Shop designation, bringing our total to 143 shops since the program’s introduction in January 2010,” said Daren Fristoe, CCAR President and Chief Operating Officer. “We are seeing more and more auto repair facilities incorporate environmental and safety stewardship in their business and marketing plans, and we look forward to greater levels of awareness in the coming months.”
All five shops being recognized are participants 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.
The GreenLink Shop status, which serves to promote consumer confidence in local automotive repair facilities’ environmental/safety awareness and stewardship, is an extension of CCAR’s CCAR-GreenLink® Environmental Compliance Assistance Center and S/P2® Safety and Pollution Prevention E-learning Program.
Repair facilities pursuing 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.
