Enviromental Mission

At Douglas Auto Body, we do more than respect nature - we do everything we can to preserve it.

Ever since 1994, we have followed the path of environmental protection by making environmental responsibility part of our code of ethics. Our goals? Integrate environmental conservation into our relations with our suppliers, design our activities to respect the vehicle's life cycle and adapt the organization to sustainable development. These concerns are translated into concrete actions, particularly the use of green parts, waste recovery, recycling of raw materials, a responsible shop and environmental paint. We have integrated these responsible actions into our methods.



A green solution

Douglas Auto Body promotes an environmental and economical body repair solution - green parts - in accordance with its commitment to quality. Coming from predamaged vehicles, they flawlessly replace damaged parts. Guaranteed first-quality green parts reduce waste and save the energy necessary to restore or manufacture new parts. It's a win-win situation!

environmental
paint

Douglas Auto Body is preparing for the future! Since 2006, we have been using water based paint in our shop to reduce volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions associated with the use of petroleum based paints and varnishes. Douglas Auto Body is committed to become the first body shop network to go green with environmental paint!

paperless objective

Our advanced computer system, including secure management and automation of administrative procedures, allows Douglas Auto Body to reduce paper consumption considerably. Within the next three years, 100% file management will exclusively involve electronic workflow, except for delivery of documents to the insured. The insurer will have direct access to its (customers') files, resulting in additional savings. This solution is offered to every partner willing to join in our efforts to preserve the environment!

YES TO RECYCLING NO TO HAZARDOUS WASTE

Douglas Auto Body has enacted programs for the recycling of parts and materials. Tons of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, glass, bumpers, tires and plastics are recovered every year by our body shop. We recycle cardboard, paper, aluminum and plastic in our office. Eliminating such polluting/non-biodegradable wastes adds up to a big plus for the planet. We even have skylights to conserve energy. Douglas Auto Body respects the highest standards in handling, storing and collecting waste involving risk to the environment. Paint slurries, used solvents, aerosols, soiled equipment, impregnated solids, soiled lubricants and batteries are all subjected to controlled treatment.
