Environmental Stewardship

Known for its leadership in safe environmental practices, ABC Auto Parts has received numerous commendations for its environmental stewardship and continues to participate in programs and initiatives on the leading edge of environmental protection.

EPA Recognition

The Environmental Protection Agency’s National Partnership for Environmental Priorities (NPEP) has recognized ABC Auto Parts for its participation in the ARA’s Certified Automotive Recycler (C.A.R.) program.

Illinois Green CAR Certification

The Auto and Truck Recyclers of Illinois has commended ABC Auto Parts for its participation in the Illinois Green Certified Automotive Recycler (Illinois Green Car) Program.

To become Illinois Green CAR certified, a recycling facility is required to meet 27 environmental, safety, business, and licensing standards. Leading recyclers working in cooperation with state and federal regulatory agencies and environmental groups developed these standards. Each facility is audited to verify that the standards are being met. Certified Illinois recyclers are nationally recognized through the ARA CAR program, and they are eligible to participate in the coveted Gold Seal program.

ELV Fluid Loss Research Protocol

ABC Auto Parts also participated in an ELV Fluid Loss Research Protocol that provides insights to the fluid loss as a result of processing an end-of-life vehicle. The study is designed to determine the quantity of fluids unable to be collected due to the design of component reservoirs. This analysis will be used to better assess the input to the waste stream of residual fluids, the magnitude of the problem, points of entry of the fluids, and possible mitigation solutions.

Global Partnerships

Employing a diverse staff of over 70 individuals at its Riverdale, Illinois location, ABC Auto Parts extends its reach globally by working with automotive parts distributors in Accra, Ghana, Amman, Jordan, Lagos, Nigeria, Mexico City and Mazatlan, Mexico. While these partnerships are in the early stages of development, ABC Auto Parts is providing economic and job opportunities to these emerging market.
