Avis Budget Group EMEA Celebrates 16 Years of Being Greener


Avis Budget Group EMEA marks 16 years of maintained CarbonNeutral® certification after releasing latest emissions figures from its CarbonNeutral® program. In 2013, the company will offset 12,661 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions (tCO2e), which is equal to its operational footprint for the year, bringing the total emissions offset since 1997 to 198,578 tCO2e.

The figure is equivalent to the emissions produced by 18,047,590 return trips from London to Paris on the Eurostar or enough gas to fuel 198,579 hot air balloons. Avis Budget Group EMEA achieved CarbonNeutral® status in 1997 and remains the only business in the region to fully offset its operational footprint.
