CCAR Recognizes Dutch Valley Auto Works as a GreenLink Shop

The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) has announced that Dutch Valley Auto Works of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, has been 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.

“The environmental awareness I learned in the 1970’s as a child is finally here to stay for all of us," said Geoff McCollom, President of Dutch Valley Auto Works, upon learning that his shop had received the GreenLink Shop recognition.

“We are so pleased to add Dutch Valley Auto Works to the growing family of GreenLink Shops around the nation,” said Rod Enlow, CCAR Vice President of Industry Relations. “Their commitment demonstrates a conviction to put employee health and safety on an even footing with other established business practices, along with a willingness to demonstrate these same values to customers.”

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.
