Facilities : Hertz applies U.S. Green Building Council's LEED standards for new construction projects and will certify select sites, in addition to energy-efficient improvements and recycling at its global facilities. Energy efficiency upgrades in 2012 saved almost 4,000,000 kWh and 2,791 metric tons of CO2 and Hertz's solar panel systems installed at facilities across the country produced more than 2.5 million kWh of electricity annually, enough to power 217 homes for a year.Recycling: Hertz prioritizes materials and goods that can be recycled and reused. In 2012, Hertz U.S. operations recycled more than 5.2 million pounds of office paper, saving the equivalent of 18.5 million gallons of water and 45,000 trees. Hertz's Equipment Rental locations have recycled more than 194,000 gallons of used oil. In 2012, Hertz's New Jersey headquarters increased recycling by 50% and reduced waste disposal costs by 65% and the Company's cafeterias recycle a variety of paper and plastic, diverting thousands of tons of waste from landfills annually.
