I-70 Auto Service has achieved a 5-star rating under the Green Garage Challenge program. I-70, through NAPA’s new GreenCareSM Certification program, has committed to fight climate change that will enhance the company’s value and help preserve the environment for future generations. 

“I-70 Auto Service is pleased to join the fight against climate change,” said Joe Sevart, owner. "Through the official EPA climate rating program, we can demonstrate our commitment to the environment and measure our efforts to reduce the risks of global warming.” 

Sevart noted that over the past year, “we have saved more than 4,000 pounds of Greenhouse Gas emissions by reducing our energy usage and material consumption  while increasing our service efficiency by more than thirty percent per hour.” 

“The new NAPA AutoCare GreenCareSM program allows us to offer industry leading solutions and green sustainability support to our AutoCare centers in one package. In turn, our members can feel secure that they have credible evidence of an environmentally sound operation to help their business be more profitable," said Bret Robyck, Vice President NAPA AutoCare. “We’re making it easier for NAPA AutoCare Centers to become Green Certified and promote their Green initiatives in the market place.” 

“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to protecting our environment,” said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial & Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, ENERGY STAR partners are leading the way by making the buildings where we work, play and learn more efficient.” 

“Educating the public about choosing eco-friendly auto centers with outstanding environmental ratings like I-70 Auto Service not only helps save energy and the environment, but it can also be a lot of fun to watch how other auto shops compare,” said Steven Schillinger, Administrator of the EPA Green Garage Challenge. “We’re excited to publicize this important message as a service to the community.” 

Qualified automotive business owners are encouraged to display their Climate Rating on an ENERGY STAR rated digital menu board funded under utility company rebate programs.
