EFM Corporate Social Responsibility
Enterprise Fleet Management takes a sustainable approach to business, while partnering with companies, agencies and organizations to help them meet their respective supply-chain and corporate social responsibility goals.
Vehicle Cycling/Fleet Optimization: You manage what you measure. In fact, managing vehicle emissions can represent a key component of customers' corporate social responsibility efforts and help them address environmental concerns. It is the fundamental principle of fleet optimization – getting all the data needed to make smart decisions about vehicle cycling.
Traditionally, the formula focuses on factors such as acquisition cost, maintenance expenses and residual value. Enterprise Fleet Management can help add a comprehensive environmental dimension to vehicle-cycling decisions, which includes fleet emissions, fuel efficiency, and direct and indirect remediation costs.
Carbon Reporting & Offsets: Commercial operations may have limited options for reducing the environmental impact of their fleet. Enterprise Fleet Management can simplify the benchmarking process and offer a tailored, accurate report on vehicle emissions. This data can then be used to influence fleet management choices, such as vehicle selection/replacement or the decision to participate in a carbon offset program.
Verified carbon offsets can provide an appealing option for fleet operators, who would otherwise have few practical ways to reduce the impact of their vehicle emissions. In essence, these offsets are contracts to invest in projects and technologies that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Enterprise Fleet Management can help you purchase these offsets through a trusted third-party partner, TerraPass.
TerraPass invests in alternative energy projects to remove harmful greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. And Enterprise Fleet Management, through its philanthropic arm – the Enterprise Holdings Foundation – will match a portion of each customer’s greenhouse gas offset purchase.
Energy & Facilities Management: In St. Louis, Enterprise Fleet Management’s office received LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s green building rating program – the second-highest LEED certification available.

- Using LED lighting fixtures that reduce the electricity used for lighting by 56 percent.
- Recycling and repurposing 92 percent of construction waste, reducing the amount of material sent to landfills.
