Europcar named Worlds Leading Green Transport Solution Company

Released on: December 11, 2008, 6:11 am

Press Release Author: Europcar

Industry: Automotive

Press Release Summary: Europcar is the first company to be awarded the accolade of Worlds Leading Green Transport Solution Company at the World Travel Awards

Press Release Body: At the 2008 World Travel Awards ceremony on December 2 in the Turks & Caicos, Europcar was named the World's Leading Green Transport Solution Company, an environmental award launched this year. The company was also elected World's Leading Leisure Car Rental Company for the second year in a row.

The World Travel Awards are the "Oscars" of the travel industry, with 167,000 industry professionals voting for the best company in each category in seven regions of the world.

These two global awards not only reflect Europcar's professionalism but also its commitment to protecting the environment: a double victory for the group, which further strengthens its position as Europe's number one car hire company.

Guirec Grand-Clément, Global Sales and Marketing Director of Europcar International, commented: "We are truly proud to have won these two awards. They represent our commitment to providing the highest quality of service - a value shared by our entire network, as demonstrated by the awards won by Europcar in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. In addition, the 'Green' award also recognizes our commitment to a sustainable environmental policy that focuses on the safety and well-being of our customers, employees and partners."

Last June, Europcar announced that it had received certification from Bureau Veritas for its "Green Charter," which formalizes its commitment to protecting the environment. It is the first such certification for a company in Europe by Bureau Veritas, the world leader in inspection and certification services applied to quality, health and hygiene, safety, the environment and social responsibility.

These initiatives and the Green award highlight the innovative nature of a group that has made commitment to the environment its spearhead for the years to come, underscoring the pioneering role it has played in its industry.

In addition to the two "world's best" prizes, Europcar was also rewarded for its quality of service in four regions of the world in 2008, winning:
- Africas Leading Car Hire Company
- Asia-Pacifics Leading Car Hire Company
- Europes Leading Car Hire Company
- Middle Easts Leading Car Hire Company
