Carrossier ProColor network, a member of CSN Collision Centres, the largest network of collision repair facilities in Canada, is proud to announce that Carrossier ProColor Sainte-Julienne is now certified Clé Verte Platinum since April 27th.
Carrossier ProColor Sainte-Julienne, who joined the Clé Verte program in 2009, is now one of the few Quebec-wide collision repair centres to be awarded the Platinum certification; a new certification given, since January 1, 2016, to workshops that have achieved the Gold level on two consecutive occasions in the past. “We were motivated by the desire to make an environmental difference in our region and to be responsible for the management of our waste and paint residues,” said Gilbert Beaulieu, Carrossier ProColor Sainte-Julienne’s Body Shop Manager.
The Benefits of Being Clé Verte Certified
Collision repair centres that obtain the Clé Verte certification have created a process that offers them a number of benefits, including employee engagement, health and safety prevention, and a positive image of the body shop in its municipality and neighborhood.”The Clé Verte certification is an advantage for participating collision centres where the perception of customers is concerned. It is not extremely complicated; it’s mostly changing the habits long rooted in our daily life.” said Gilbert Beaulieu.
To attain Platinum level, Mr. Beaulieu and his team acquired a shed where toxic waste such as paint residue, paint cans, oily residues, and interior bins for recycling and normal waste are stored. Other investments have been made such as energy-efficient lighting, recyclable office paper and paperless customer records.
Their employees were involved in the accreditation process from the very beginning to achieve a level of excellence in environmental management. “They have been made aware of the importance of recycling and have been actively involved in changing work habits: separating recyclable from hazardous materials.” added Mr. Beaulieu.
Carrossier ProColor Sainte-Julienne is located at 1200, route 125, local 102, in Sainte-Julienne.
