AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION OF CANADA

Environment

AIA believes that the aftermarket industry must be good corporate citizens and do whatever is reasonably possible to protect the environment. In addition to adhering to government regulations and legislation on the environment, AIA also encourages consumers to practice environmental best practices by encouraging them to properly maintain their vehicle through preventative vehicle maintenance - this is accomplished through AIA's Be Car Care Aware program.

AIA also believes that the government should ensure funding is available for aftermarket companies involved in re-manufacturing -- a Canadian niche area of expertise; provide tax incentives for environmentally friendly activities such as re-manufacturing; and that government and industry should work together to develop and bring to market technologies to address climate change. AIA would also like to see the harmonization of environmental legislation between the provinces and within North America.

AIA will work, for example, to ensure that the interests of the automotive sector are protected when developing legislation or regulations that would put into action the basis of the Kyoto Accord in Canada.

To demonstrate its commitment to the environment AIA members are currently involved in a number of used oil and used oil filter reclamation programs in those provinces that support such a program. AIA also supports vehicle emissions testing to help ensure the reduction of automotive pollutants in the atmosphere. AIA members are also proactive in their reclamation of CFC refrigerants, used batteries, used tires, and in a number of other initiatives.
