Calif. Autobody Assn. Works to Reduce Industry Emissions

November 11, 2009

SACRAMENTO, CA --- The California Autobody Association (CAA) announced plans to partner with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to promote efforts to reduce toxic exposures arising from collision repair operations. 

The association will work with the EPA's Collision Repair Campaign to address health threats and reduce auto body emissions. This campaign is aimed at reducing hazardous air pollutants, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter emissions at collision repair facilities. CAA is encouraging its members to apply for subsidies and rebates available under federal, state and local green programs to overcome any financial barriers standing in the way of the campaign's goals. 

The campaign is in accordance with the Certified Green Investment (CGI) program. CGI certification validates that a shop has invested in green products and equipment that contribute to environmental conservation and greenhouse gas reduction. The process evaluates improvements based on assessment standards recognized under federal, state and provincial programs.
