...nice to know that the Ohio EPA is here to help small businesses.”

 

While Baker’s has made many changes over the years to help safeguard the environment, “the activities are not difficult, and neither is the implementation,” according to Powell. “Like many things, the biggest challenge is the mindset. If companies have the right mindset and truly want to adopt these policies, there are many resources to assist with accomplishing those goals.”

 

Powell also recognizes employee buy-in is essential.

 

“At Baker’s, my greatest success story is the business culture," she said. "I could not have a better team; they embrace our philosophies, which revolve around God, family and then business. They want to contribute to our community being a great place to work and live, and that means taking all of the small steps that we can to improve the environment.”

 

Powell continues exploring additional avenues to improve her business.

 

“We’re currently focused on additional training and equipment purchases to work on the EVs that are here now and all those to come. Two certification programs are currently requiring additional items to maintain status, and as the OEMs become more selective on who they certify, we are positioning ourselves to repair these vehicles to their high standards---we want to be on that cutting edge.”

 

“I hope other shops and businesses will explore what they can do to help preserve and improve the environment,” Powell added. “It’s a good business decision---and a good personal decision.”
