Enterprise Holdings Inc. has announced new five-year goals in its fiscal year 2015 sustainability report, “The Business of Sustainability.”

“These new goals reflect a fresh look at our priorities based on conversations with our many stakeholders and leadership teams,” said Pam Nicholson, president and CEO of Enterprise Holdings Inc.

In the report, Nicholson also stressed that Enterprise Holdings takes “a thoughtful approach that balances the needs of our customers and our business with sustainable resource use.”

As a result, Enterprise’s new goals were drafted using an assessment process that not only surveyed employees, major suppliers, major corporate accounts and internal senior leaders, but also included a qualitative review and analysis of public comments and reports by automotive manufacturers and the car rental industry as a whole, according to the company.

Here are Enterprise’s new five-year sustainability goals:

  • Waste: Reduce companywide paper use 40% by fiscal year 2020.
  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG): Reduce greenhouse gas emissions 10% by fiscal year 2020.
  • Energy: Reduce annual direct and indirect energy use and related costs, compared to the previous year.
  • Water: Reduce annual water use (per vehicle wash), compared to the previous year.
  • Workforce Development: Continue investing in the workplace by providing an average of at least three days’ professional development annually per full-time management employee. Also, encourage all employees to attend relevant company sessions, events, programs and forums.
