Environmental sustainability, Hertz's Living Journey, is integrated throughout the Company, from its car washes to the way its rental locations are built. Hertz is committed to its sustainability efforts – both from a fleet and operations perspective – and prides itself as a market leader in sustainable transport and operations. As Hertz redesigns its facilities, the company is introducing specific sustainable construction and design highlights, including LEED certification at select sites, the use of LED and energy efficient lighting, solar power systems and solar outdoor lighting at select sites, post-consumer recycled content materials and finishes, water saving fixtures and zero-VOC paints. Hertz is also rolling out a national single-stream recycling program in addition to current recycling efforts around automotive waste oils and tires. Other Hertz Living Journey outcomes include production of 2.5M kWh of solar energy annually and sustainable mobility solutions. More than 75% of the company's fleet averages 28+ MPGs and the Green Traveler Collection offers a variety of alternate fuel vehicles, including Electric Vehicles, Clean Diesels, Compressed Natural Gas vehicles and hybrids.
Hertz has been recognized for its sustainability achievements as well including Zagat's "Best Green Options", Global Business Travel Association's "Sustainable Innovation Award", Swedish Association of Green Motorists' "Most Environmentally Friendly Car Rental Company", and Fleet News UK's "Environmental Award."
