Europcar, the European car rental leader and a key player in sustainable development in its sector, is highlighting its fleet of green cars by creating a dedicated eco-friendly section on its website.
Europcar is pursuing its green initiatives in favour of the environment by giving maximum visibility to its eco-friendly cars and by encouraging consumers to choose a greener car when making reservations. Europcars eco-friendly fleet includes vehicles with CO2 emissions of less than 140gr/km and models equipped with alternative engines (hybrid or electric) or that are compatible with biofuels, bio ethanol and natural gas.
In addition to adding a section dedicated to eco-friendly cars, specific information is available on CO2 emissions for all models of its rental car fleet. The European energy rating system from A to G is given with the description of each vehicle, the greenest of which is labelled eco-friendly.
This initiative is part of Europcars commitment to protecting the environment. A pioneer in this sector, Europcar opened its first eco-friendly agency in Paris in 1999. It was the first European company to develop an Environmental Charter certified by Bureau Veritas in 2008. Europcar was also the first company to win the 2008 World Travel Award for the World’s Leading Green Transport Solution Company.
