Almost two year after becoming South Africa’s first carbon-neutral company in September 2009, Avis has been accelerating the momentum of its green drive with new insights and initiatives.

From recycling more than 75 million litres of water per year, to reducing energy consumption and recycling waste, Avis has added some accolades to their green journey. Being announced winner of the Corporate Services Private Sector category at the Climate Change Leadership Awards in 2011 and specially commended runner-up in the Water Care category of the Mail & Guardian Greening the Future Awards, Avis is constantly exploring new territory in the sustainability arena.

Duvenage says taking sustainability seriously requires effort and energy, driven from the top and involving as many people as possible from within the organisation. “It is inspirational and every business should be encouraged to introduce sustainable practices and initiatives into its strategies for one reason only - our planet and life itself are under threat of survival from rapid climate change caused by the growing emission of greenhouse gasses.
