Carbon offset program for green car rentals with Greenfleet

Our carbon offset program with Greenfleet

At Europcar, we take our commitment to the environment seriously which is why, in 2006 we partnered with a carbon program run by offset.

Greenfleet are an environmental non-profit organisation and Australia’s most trusted source of bio diverse carbon offsets and our aim is to reduce the impact of our fleet on the environment and offer a carbon offset program to valued customers.

At the time of collecting their vehicle all customers are invited to make a donation of $4 to help plant native trees and offset part of their rental emissions.

Europcar passes on all contributions directly to Greenfleet, therefore customers directly fund native reforestation projects around Australia to genuinely reduce their car rental impact on the environment.

Our positive impact

By partnering with Greenfleet, Europcar are confident that our carbon offset program provides genuine and lasting environmental benefits.

To date, together with customer donations, we have already helped to plant more than 165,000 native trees and restore bio doverse forests around Australia which is a positive impact we’re very proud of.

One of the projects we have chosen to support with Greenfleet aids in restoring the natural habitat for koalas along the Great Ocean Road - one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives.

Visitors from around the world travel to the Great Ocean Road to see the towering 12 Apostles, iconic surf breaks and misty waterfalls: and also to catch a glimpse of koalas in their natural habitat.

Contributions are helping to plant native trees along the Great Ocean Road, so all customers have the power to take real climate action and help protect and re-build koala habitat thanks to this carbon offset program.
