EnviroStars is a program that certifies companies based on their practices and policies that demonstrate commitment to protecting the environment by properly managing and reducing hazardous materials and waste. Companies receive 2 to 5-Stars; the higher the rating, the more thoroughly environmentally friendly practices are built into the company’s policies and operations.
Five-Stars demonstrate leadership on environmental issues beyond their own facilities – within their industry, and/or community. Beyond managing environmentally sustainable best practices at their own facilities, CAF is active in both their industry and local community in supporting the environment. On various occasions, CAF representatives have been invited as experts to industry gatherings to speak on topics ranging from proper outdoor chemical use to prevent waste from entering the environment to properly remediating hydrocarbon spills and staining. Locally, CAF’s employees regularly volunteer with their local community and have adopted a section of their local highway to cleanup roadside waste.
"The current environmental movement is commonly focused on new construction"

CAF's recent performance also placed them as INC. Magazine’s 9th Fastest Growing Private Company in the Seattle Metro Area listing. In Washington State, CAF was also recently named the 2011 Association of Washington Business Environmental Excellence Award winner.
EnviroStars is an objective third party certification you can trust. Local government consultants do on-site business assessments of each applicant. Then potential EnviroStars applicants are reviewed by the Washington Department of Ecology. After a company earns its certification, a rigorous on-going renewal process assures standards are maintained over time.
The EnviroStars Program was created in King County, Washington in 1995, as a service of the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program. It has since been adopted across the region in Jefferson, Kitsap, Pierce, Skagit, Spokane, and Whatcom Counties. The mission of EnviroStars is to provide assistance and incentives for smaller businesses to reduce hazardous materials and waste, in order to protect public health, municipal systems, and the environment.
