Enterprise’s carbon offset program helps organizations manage their carbon emissions and supports projects that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. To date, Enterprise has estimated that the program has offset a cumulative total of more than 120,700 metric tons of carbon, which is equivalent to saving an estimated 13.5 million gallons of gasoline and 280,700 barrels of oil.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car works with partners to re-refine more than 5 million gallons of engine oil to be reused in the Enterprise fleet, which helps the environment and lowers costs.
