SACRAMENTO, CA --- David McClune, executive director of the California Autobody Association (CAA), announced an agreement with GRC-Pirk Management for members to acquire Certified Green Investment (CGI) qualifications.
"CAA has always led the nation in efforts to keep shops eco-friendly and environmentally responsible, and now we have the means to validate our venture," said McClune. "Our shops can now exhibit evidence that they care for the environment and the community they serve."
Qualified CAA members receive a certification poster imprinted with official EPA, state and municipal "green" partnership seals of recognition for public display.
"With accredited certification, shops have an effective way to attract consumers in an eco-friendly way," said Steven Schillinger, president of GRC-Pirk Management. "But no matter if they invest in equipment or trees, eco-consciousness has become an established movement. Attracting customers with evidence of green investment confirms shop credibility. Licensed professionals certify that CAA members have attained an environmental assessment sufficient to display recognition of accredited 'green' government partnerships and programs."
The California Autobody Association is a nonprofit trade association comprising over 1,000 collision repair businesses and associated professionals.
