Hertz Global Holdings Inc. has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, The Hertz Corp., has been awarded a 2017 Corporate Responsibility (CR) Champion Award by the Council of Corporate Responsibility in partnership with the National Diversity Council.

The award recognizes organizations that demonstrate achievements and sustained commitment to the pursuit of corporate responsibility in the workplace and community. 

As part of Hertz's commitment to corporate responsibility, the company currently has seven LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building program certified locations throughout the U.S., including Hertz's world headquarters in Estero, Fla., which is LEED Gold® certified.

Nearly 80% of Hertz’s vehicles have a minimum fuel-efficiency rating of 28+ highway miles per gallon, and environmental efficiency programs' efforts resulted in recycling over 2 million gallons of used oil and auto waste in 2015.

The Hertz corporate responsibility program also includes mixed recycling at Hertz rental locations, as well as tire recycling, which resulted in nearly 300,000 tires diverted from landfills in 2015, according to the company.

"We are honored to be recognized by the Council of Corporate Responsibility for our dedication and actions toward being a good corporate steward," said Kathryn V. Marinello, Hertz’s president and CEO. "We're proud to continue our commitment to deliver smart mobility and sustainability solutions at work, in the community, and on the road."
