Hertz New Zealand Secures Enviro Bronze Accreditation

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 28 August 2009

Hertz New Zealand has enhanced its green credentials, securing an Enviro Bronze Accreditation from Qualmark, the official quality measurement agency of New Zealand’s tourism industry.

The Qualmark ratings system, introduced last year, recognises the commitment of tourism companies to practices including energy efficiency, conservation initiatives, waste management, water conservation and community activities.

“New Zealand is one of the greenest tourism destinations in the world and Hertz is committed to being one of the greenest members of the New Zealand tourism community,” said Jacqueline Lehmann, Region Vice President Hertz Australia and New Zealand.

“The Qualmark Enviro Bronze Accreditation recognises our commitment to measures which reduce our impact on the environment,” she said. “We will continue exploring and implementing green initiatives.”

Well before the Qualmark ratings programme was introduced, and in the absence of a local emissions measurement system, Hertz adopted Euro fuel emissions standards for its rental vehicles in New Zealand.

More than 85% of the Hertz New Zealand corporate fleet now meets the Euro 4 standard, which is currently the most stringent benchmark, while the balance of the fleet meets the Euro 3 emission standard.

Hertz also is well advanced in introducing an all-diesel fleet of Toyota Prado 4WD vehicles throughout New Zealand, and expects to complete the upgrade programme by the end of March 2010.

A range of other measures have also been implemented, from fuel storage facilities designed to minimise and monitor leakage to waste recycling and improved resource management.

Hertz has more than 8000 rental locations in 147 countries, including more than 40 locations in New Zealand.
