Europcar ups green agenda

Europcar is highlighting its fleet of green cars by creating a dedicated eco-friendly section on its website,

Europcar is pursuing its green initiatives by giving maximum visibility to its eco-friendly cars and by encouraging consumers to choose a greener car when making reservations.

Europcar’s eco-friendly fleet includes vehicles with CO2 emissions of less than 140gr/km and models equipped with alternative engines (hybrid or electric) or that are compatible with biofuels, bio ethanol and natural gas.

In addition to adding a section dedicated to eco-friendly cars, specific information is available on CO2 emissions for all models of its rental car fleet. The European energy rating system from A to G is given with the description of each vehicle, the greenest of which is labelled “eco-friendly”.

The initiative is part of Europcar’s commitment to protecting the environment. A pioneer in this sector, Europcar opened its first eco-friendly agency in Paris in 1999. It was the first European company to develop an Environmental Charter certified by Bureau Veritas in 2008.


Europcar was also the first ever company to win “World’s Leading Green Transport Solution Company” at the World Travel Awards.
