Europcar maintains Gold CEMARS certification for commitment to reducing emissions

Europcar Mobility Group UK managing director Gary Smith

Europcar in the UK has maintained its Gold CEMARS (Carbon and Energy Management and Reduction Scheme) for the seventh year in recognition of its commitment to measuring, managing and reducing emissions.

The scheme allows companies to measure and monitor their greenhouse gas emissions and put in place plans to reduce them across design, development, management and reporting within an organisation.

Since 2010, the base year for Europcar in the UK’s CEMARS measurement, it has achieved an 8.4% reduction in emissions intensity (tCO2e/£million revenue).

This reduction has been achieved through more accurate reporting, which helped to identify areas of the business with unnecessary spend and emissions.

Gary Smith, managing director of Europcar Mobility Group in the UK, said: “Certification to CEMARS for the seventh year running confirms our ongoing commitment to robust and credible monitoring and managing of our emissions.

“Key targets set by Europcar UK to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the coming years, include reducing the average fleet CO2 figure; reducing average vehicle emissions for non-revenue movements.

“In addition, we aim to improve awareness of electricity/water usage and efficiencies.

“Once again Europcar UK is leading the way in creating a more sustainable organisation, as part of a proactive approach to reducing the environmental impact of our transport solutions.”
