2014: The Business of Sustainability: Driving our Future Forward

Today, we have operations in more than 60 countries and territories around the world. But for all that might have changed, our approach to doing business remains the same: We take the long-term view and consistently and conservatively invest in our future.

Shared Use Mobility Summit

Enterprise CarShare was a key sponsor of the 2013 Shared Use Mobility Conference, hosted by the Transportation Sustainability Research Center at the University of California, Berkley. This event – the world’s first summit explicitly focused on shared-use mobility – brought together nearly 300 participants from close to 200 organizations to engage in a lively dialogue about the future of these evolving approaches to local transportation.

 

 

Drive Electric Orlando

In Orlando, Florida, we leveraged our local network and resources to introduce more business and leisure travelers to electric vehicles.
