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. This is why we launched a carbon offset program in 2006.

We work with Greenfleet, an environment non-profit and Australia’s most trusted source of biodiverse carbon offsets, to reduce the impact of our fleet on the environment and offer a carbon offset program to our valued customers.

At the time of booking, our customers are invited to make a donation of $4 to help plant native trees and offset part of their rental’s emissions.

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

Europcar believes in leading by example. This is why since 2006, we also work with Greenfleet to offset our staff travels carbon emissions.

Our positive impact

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

To date, together with our clients, we have already helped to plant more than 165,000 native trees and restore biodoverse forests around Australia.This is a positive impact we’re very proud of.

One of the projects we have chosen to support with Greenfleet aims to restore 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 our customers have the power to take real climate action and help protect and re-build koala habitat thanks to our carbon offset program.
