We are committed to measuring the impact that we have on the environment and are taking steps to improve the situation, with our focus on green house gas emissions from our fleet, offices and rental locations. It’s a big challenge, but we have achieved great things so far and will continue to try harder for the environment in all that we do.
Our Green Fleet
Our fleet includes hundreds of new, environmentally friendly ‘green’ cars which have low CO2 emissions, so wherever you are, you can hire a ‘green’ car and do your bit, for example:
We have a number of ‘green’ vehicles on our UK feet, including the Volkswagen BlueMotion Golf and the Mercedes A-Class Blue Efficiency which have been chosen for their low CO2 emissions and high fuel efficiency.
Every car on our fleet in Portugal is a ‘green’ vehicle, from the Volkswagen BlueMotion and Volvo DRIVE models to the BMW EfficientDynamics and the Mercedes BlueEfficiency range. All of our other vehicles are less than six months old – ensuring they are running to optimum efficiency.
The fleet in the Netherlands includes 20 Nissan Leafs, which are 100% electrical cars, offering an extremely low emission rental car option.
Malta, Gozo and Spain
Over 55% of the vehicles on our fleet are sub-120g/km C02 emissions!
The Renault Twingo and Citroen Eco are perfect additions to our fleet in France, ensuring there is always an option for you to choose a ‘green’ rental car for your journey.
We also change our fleet very regularly, which ensures that we are using the latest low CO2 emission vehicles available and every time they are used we check them to ensure they are still running at peak efficiency.
We are constantly looking for new ways to do our bit and working towards protecting the planet for future generations.
Preventing Spills and Leaks
We know it’s important to avoid fuel spills and leaks to the environment and that’s why we have brought in a number of measures to keep these to a minimum. These include training our staff on Spill Prevention Control measures, storing fuel correctly and installing detection systems so if there is a problem we are alerted to it straight away.
Our storage tanks are made from material that won’t corrode, they have overfill protection and secondary containment to prevent leaks
All of our systems are checked regularly by independent certified engineers to make sure they are in top working order.
