COMPANY | SUSTAINABILITY
Our company has always done so much more than just repairing cars. We want to make the world a better place, one car, one person and one community at time.

Our vision for sustainability is to be the social, environmental and economic leader in our industry and within the local communities we serve. We give 10% of our pre-tax net profits towards programs and initiatives that support our Sustainability Plan.

Our guiding principles:

  • Make great things happen socially, environmentally and economically
  • Respect, honour and listen to our customers, partners and employees
  • Ensure ethics, integrity and transparency in everything we do

Community

Whether we are sponsoring local events, or supporting a national charity, giving back and contributing to the community is a very important part of what CARSTAR stands for.

Our individual stores give back to their local communities by participating in fundraisers, sponsorships and apprentice programs to enrich the lives of the people they work and live with.

 

Give, Green and Growth Guarantee

COMPANY | SUSTAINABILITY

 

 

 

When CARSTAR stores achieve Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) through CARSTAR’s Tiered Performance program, they have the opportunity to offer our Give, Green & Growth Guarantee within their local community.

Give

We focus on social goals. Each of our Franchise Partners is expected to be active within their local community. This includes participation in community initiatives, expanding stakeholder and employee engagement, and a commitment to raising funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, CARSTAR’s national charity of choice.

Green

We focus on minimizing our environmental footprint and optimizing resource efficiencies, especially energy, water and recycled parts. These goals are set by legislation and we encourage our Franchise Partners nation-wide to meet or exceed these standards.

One way we achieve our goals is by offering environmentally friendly products, such as superior paint formulated with European technology. We also work hard to meet and exceed industry standards regarding the application and disposal of hazardous materials, including:

  • Sending non-reparable sheet metal to recycling depots
  • Discarding tires and batteries at a recycle facility
  • Recycling waste solvents on store premises
  • Sending excess solvent and paint for safe disposal or recycling

Growth

We focus on ensuring that our corporate team, as well as our Franchise Partners, are focused on customer retention, revenue growth and consistent investment in exploration and improvement programs.

CARSTAR believes in the philosophy of integrating economic, environmental and social responsibility standards into everything we do for a better future for all of us.

Our individual stores give back to their local communities by participating in fundraisers, sponsorships and apprentice programs to enrich the lives of the people they work and live with.
