Avis Rent-a-Car System Inc


Avis develops and implements business practices consistent with safeguarding the environment. For example, at the Avis facilities where vehicles are serviced and maintenance activities are performed, biodegradeable and recyclable parts cleaner are used in the maintenance; used oil is recycled by forwarding to government regulated facilities; car batteries, scrap tyres and spent coolant are also reused.

To reduce water consumption, Avis utilises water reclaim systems for car washing, and water saving devices on toilets and sinks. To protect and conserve fresh water resources, Avis has developed facility management guidelines for Stormwater Best Management Practices and Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plans.

The environment programme encompasses many other policies which are overseen by the Director of Environmental Affairs and communicated to staff through Avis' employee training and annual refresher programmes.
