Netcost invites all its clients to participate to maximize the restorative impact on the environment.

Nationwide claims administrator, Netcost Claim Services is leading the way in greening the auto glass industry, and making it easy for all their partners to participate.

First invented in a laboratory accident in 1903 by a French chemist, laminated glass has become a major environmental burden. Contrary to what is commonly believed that all glass is recyclable, laminated glass is not; in addition it is energy intensive to create. Surveys estimate 3 million windshields are repaired a year, and around 11 million are replaced each year.

The Repair & Replant™ program is offered exclusively by Netcost – who will donate one tree to American Forests’ Releaf program for every windshield that is repaired through Netcost’s participating clients – eliminating the need for an entire replacement of the windshield. Netcost clients can opt into the co-branded Repair & Replant™ program at no cost, using the logo on their websites or linking to the Repair & Replant™ website. Netcost will notify the vehicle’s driver or the insured that a tree was planted on their behalf.

According to COO Mario Veltri, “Our industry has a drastic effect on the environment – from emissions, to the manufacture of physical cars and fleets. It is imperative that the service providers that support the leading brands in the insurance industry do their part to reduce our footprint.”
