We are setting the environmental trend

We committed to push our own limits and set an unexpectedly low CO2 standard for our whole fleet of 1,500 vehicles.

Despite the diversity of the fleet, which in addition to passenger cars includes also a robust fleet of commercial vehicles, this goal will be achieved by the car operator as early as 2020 – mainly thanks to the young fleet, whose average age is 7,5 months.

 

This bold and difficult step should contribute to reducing the environmental burden in the automobile industry and significantly lower the average of CO2 in the Slovak automotive industry.

 

As early as 2019, the company´s average fleet emissions were 120g of CO2/km, which is at least 15% less than the average of the car rental segment and up to 19% less than the fleets of taxi operators.

 

The goal for 2020 is to achieve an average level of emissions at 105g of CO2/km and achieve the prescribed European target of 95g of CO2/km in 2021.

 

The entrepreneur is proactively replacing the state

 

An essential element to the company´s commitment is corporate social responsibility and building a sustainable growth of the company on a clean basis, recognizing that there is currently no legally binding regulation in place to limit the operation of cars with a high emission load for the environment in Slovakia.

 

Thanks to the absence of legislation to prevent the purchase of old emission-producing vehicles, thousands of used cars flow into the country from countries, where such restrictions are already in place. This results in a long-term trend instead of reducing CO2 emissions in Slovakia, as in the EU, it results in rather slightly increasing.

 

From current statistics, it is clear that improvement in our country is coming only at a slow pace. Slovakia is lagging behind for the year 2017 in emissions of new vehicles issued by the EEA. Cars in Slovakia emitted emissions at an average of 126.1g of CO2/km, while the European average was 118.5g of CO2/km. The European Union´s strategy is to reduce emissions for car companies from 130g of CO2/km to 95g of CO2/km by 2021.

 

“We believe, that this step on how to less burden this country with emissions, will be perceived by customers as innovative and our low-emission vehicles will be all the more in demand by customers – and, by nature, more attractive,” says Vladimír Orth, CEO of AVIS.

 

„Our company is interested in being a leader in introducing new technologies and limits, which will prevent the operations of high-emission vehicles in order to improve the quality of the environment in the country,“ adds Orth.
