STATEMENT BY CAROLINE PAROT, CHAIRWOMAN OF THE MANAGEMENT BOARD
Europcar’s ambition is to be one of the leaders in the mobility sector, offering innovative and tailored solutions to meet customers’ personal and professional transportation needs. In 2017, the Group’s customers traveled more than 7.5 billion km using its vehicle rental or car-sharing services.
By encouraging vehicle use over ownership, Europcar is putting the functionality economy at the heart of its business model, helping to minimize the resources spent on vehicle construction and, thanks to the onboard fuel economy and emissions savings technologies of its modern fleet (average age of vehicles about 9 months), also helping cut fuel consumption and emissions. That said, the Group is very conscious of the environmental issues it faces, given its international presence, its numerous businesses and the sector in which it operates, and of its social and corporate footprint. The Group is convinced that corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a key factor in its success and sustainability, if it is to carry on its business and meet its growth targets.
This is why Europcar has created “Commit Together!” this year, a pioneering strategy built around four main commitments that define our four priorities for sustainable success. This strategy, endorsed by the Group’s corporate governance bodies, is the result of a consultation and analysis of key stakeholders’ CSR expectations (employees, suppliers, customers, investors and franchisees) as well as analysis of the associated impacts, risks and opportunities.
