John’s Automotive Care is San Diego Certified Green!

John’s Automotive Care is proud to be recognized as a :San Diego Certified Green business. We work hard to meet the strict requirements to be considered a “Green” facility and we are dedicated to be environmentally conscious each and every day. We are eco-friendly all the way!

As an environmentally friendly shop we are committed to recycling materials, re-purposing office supplies, limiting energy consumption, safely discarding hazardous materials, and much more.

What it means to be “Green”!

To be a green business, we had to meet tough certification requirements of the San Diego Area Green Business Program. This program was developed to help minimize the environmental impact of business in the San Diego region by encouraging them to use tools and practices that are environmentally responsible.

Energy conservation and pollution prevention

Two of the biggest environmental hazards are rampant energy consumption and pollution. As you can imagine, an auto repair shop, like ours, requires a great deal of energy to operate efficiently. Moreover, because of the amount of hazardous materials we handle regularly, including oil, coolant, gas, and lubricants, auto repair shops run the risk of posing a huge threat to the environment if they are not careful with their procedures.

As a green business, we regularly take steps to conserve our energy use, including our electricity and gas energy. We also limit our solid waste and water consumption through customized business operations that have been approved San Diego Area Green Business Program as effective methods to help minimize our environmental impact.

Plus, to maintain our green business certification, we are required to continue to use our environmentally conscious business procedures and materials.

Business responsibilities to the environment

At John’s Automotive Care, we believe that businesses should be responsible to the environment by reducing their waste, minimizing extraneous utility usage, improving equipment performance, and creating a safer environment not only for employees of the business, but also for the community as a whole.

As a green business, our auto care shop actively participates in pollution prevention, energy conservation, water conservation, and solid waste reduction practices voluntarily. We also comply with all environmental regulations that are designed to create a more sustainable world for current and future generations.
