Europcar Adds CO2 Emissions Data to Rental Invoices in Australia

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 13 May 2009

Europcar will soon issue its Australian customers rental invoices containing information about a vehicle’s CO2 emissions.

The new invoicing system including CO2 data was recently rolled out in New Zealand, garnering an enthusiastic response from both customers and the motoring industry.

Europcar customers in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the UK also receive invoices with CO2 emissions data.

It’s expected the new carbon emissions data will be available for Australian customers in the next month or so.

The CO2 calculation is based on the vehicle type and model as well as the distance travelled.

The CO2 invoicing system follows a new supply agreement between Europcar and Audi, which will see Europcar add 150 new Audi A3 Sportback 1.9 TDI E models to its fleet.

Europcar’s new Audi A3 Sportback boasts an average fuel consumption of just 4.5-litres per 100km. The A3 models are part of a new range of Audi cars tuned specifically to cut consumption and still deliver engaging dynamic performance via a range of hi-tech engineering refinements.

In Australia Europcar also operates a carbon-offset program in partnership with not-for-profit environmental organisation Greenfleet, which specialises in reducing the environmental impacts of the transport industry. As part of the Greenfleet program, Europcar plants 17 trees for each new car that is added to its fleet. Individual customers also can donate $3 to the Greenfleet program every time they hire a car.

Group marketing manager Europcar Australia and New Zealand Ashley Jurberg said Europcar’s new format for rental invoices would cater to an increasing trend among the nation’s corporate customers, who were making their own commitments to corporate social responsibility by setting specific environmental criteria for accrediting their suppliers.
