The Clean Auto Alliance brings together automotive-related businesses, manufacturers, government agencies and dealerships to address environmental, safety and transportation best practices through education, research, recognition, and related activities. Our charter is to:

  • Promote the development of education and training on best practices in environmental health and safety for automotive facilities and their employees. As new technologies emerge the Clean Auto Alliance looks to ensure that environmental health and safety training keeps pace.
  • Provide research and information relevant to the public and the automotive community related to environmental health and safety; risk management and facility management. Through our network of members and industry contacts we will publish information on trends in environment and safety promoting awareness on recent incident and accident trends and new environment and safety solutions.
  • Administer recognition programs to increase consumer awareness and appreciation for those automotive service facilities committed to best practices in facility management
  • Assist in creating positive brand recognition for those facilities that adhere to the highest level of environmental health and safety practices and have achieved the Environment and Safety Elite Award.

Regulatory bodies like OSHA and EPA create minimum standards to which all businesses must comply. The Clean Auto Alliance looks for opportunities to stay ahead of the regulators promoting workplace safety and environmental best practices in a practical methodology. Ultimately the Clean Auto Alliance looks to save businesses money, prevent injuries, and reduce environmental impacts.
