Cars are in our Nature
At Fix Auto, 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, responsible shops and environmental paint. All the stakeholders have integrated these responsible actions into their methods. We have obtained large-scale results due to the scope of our network!
A green solution
Fix Auto 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. Guaranted first-quality green parts reduce waste and save the energy necessary to restore or manufacture new parts. It's a win-win situation!
Fix Auto adheres to programs for the recycling of parts and materials throughout its network. Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, glass, bumpers, tires and plastics are recovered every year by our body shops. We recycle cardboard in our shops and offices. Eliminating such polluting/non-biodegradable wastes adds up to a big plus for the planets!

Our advanced computer system, including secure management and automation of administrative procedures, allows Fix Auto to reduce paper consumption considerably. Within the next three years, 100% file management in Canada 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!
No to hazardous waste
Zero tolerance throughout the network! Fix Auto 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.
Fix Auto is preparing for the future! Since 2006, we have been retrofitting our shops to reduce volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions associated with the use of paints and varnishes. Each Fix Auto location is prepared for the arrival of environmental paint, by completing the training required for its use and its application to auto body repair. Fix Auto is committed to become the first body shop network to go green with environmental paint!
