Every business needs to take action to measure and reduce their carbon footprint. Since 1997 Avis Budget EMEA Ltd has actively reduced its emissions. Our licensor Avis Budget EMEA Ltd is committed to reducing its impact on the environment through measuring and reducing our carbon footprint.. The largest area of concern is the production of greenhouse gases. These are generated from offices, rental locations and vehicle fleet. It's a big challenge. CarbonNeutral® operation accreditationAvis Budget EMEA Ltd is CarbonNeutral® operations accredited. For every one tonne of CO2 they produce, they pay for one tonne to be saved by a validated emission reduction project that has met international standards. This is known as carbon offsetting. Over the past decade Avis Europe has supported and help finance:

Forestry projects across Europe;

A small-scale hydro power project in Bulgaria;

An agricultural methane capture project in Germany;

A co-generation power plant in India, which achieves greenhouse gas emissions reductions by switching the supply of energy to the facility from fossil fuel sources to biomass, a renewable energy source;

Four small run-of-river hydro power stations in Western China;
