The VCDR standard integrates the use of sustainable technology for their body and paint repair services, such as a low-pressure ventilation system with automatic controls that reduces the emission of carbon dioxide, emission of microscopic particles, and energy consumption.

Additionally, the machinery utilises batteries when heating the electric system, and more than 80% of the air will be sucked in through a filtration system that reduces energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

The use of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in paint is now replaced with a water-based paint, reducing employee’s exposure to hazardous chemicals.
