"Sustainability is part of our daily life at Hertz- it's become a business management tool, as well as a mechanism to protect the environment and provide community benefits," commented Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "While we have made tremendous progress, our parallel commitment to continuous improvement means that we always strive to innovate and advance our sustainability efforts. Our sustainability efforts, as seen through Living Journey, will provide value to our stakeholders and help ensure the long-term health and productivity of the customers and communities we serve. We take pride in the progress that has been achieved since the launch of Living Journey."

Living Journey (, launched last year, includes Hertz's sustainability initiatives and plans for the future. This strategy includes a focused commitment to smart mobility, environment, community outreach, and Hertz's overall corporate commitment and best practices.

Through its various elements, Hertz's Living Journey 2012 Sustainability Report highlights the following achievements:

Fleet : For travelers, 74% of Hertz's car rental fleet averages 28+ mpg and the Company's Green Traveler Collection features low emission and fuel efficient vehicles which average better than 48+ mpg. This collection includes a range of Hybrids, Electric, CNG, and clean diesel vehicles.  Additionally, Hertz is exploring a range of cars and buses that use alternative fuels and technologies for airport transportation.

Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation also maintains a sustainable fleet with 70% of earthmoving equipment powered by low-emission engines in models that are 2012 and newer, which reduce air-pollution by 90% vs older models. Donlen, Hertz's fleet leasing management company, has assisted companies in reducing fleet emissions through Fleets for Change, with a goal of minimizing commercial fleet greenhouse gas emissions by 20% over five years. And, Donlen's DriverPoint Telematics measures the impact of driver behavior on fuel economy to reinforce green driving behaviors to implement change.
