Avis Budget Group recently announced an alliance with Carbonfund.org, an international non-profit organization providing carbon offset solutions to individuals and businesses.
This alliance will enable Avis Budget Group to offer its corporate and retail customers a variety of carbon offset options to enable them to minimize the environmental impact of their daily, weekly or monthly vehicle rentals.
Customers of Avis and Budget will be able to make donations to Carbonfund.org online via avis.com and www.budget.com to offset the emissions from their rental car use as a separate transaction from their vehicle rental.
The donations go towards the ongoing purchase of carbon offset credits, which fund a variety of environmental projects aimed at reducing the emission of greenhouse gases.
The alliance with Carbonfund.org adds to the many environmental initiatives of Avis Budget Group, which is already partnering with its corporate customers to assist them with their individual carbon reduction targets.
The company is also creating a formal environmental management system (EMS), which is being designed to measure and manage environmental aspects of the company's operations in accordance with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 guidelines.
