20 year anniversary
Enterprise Rent-A-Car is launching a national ecological initiative to commemorate 20 years of business in the UK.
In partnership with local authorities, as well as with the University of Sheffield’s Landscape Architecture department, Enterprise will transform roundabouts across the country into natural wildflower gardens, promoting local bio-diversity.
The initiative is designed to give something back to the local communities where Enterprise is located, by creating sustainable and beautiful roundabout designs that will last long into the future.
As well as being the largest UK car hire company by fleet size, Enterprise also has the largest branch network, and supporting its local communities is a vital part of Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s business operations across the country.
Enterprise have partnered with The University of Sheffield and Green Estate for the project, with them supplying design and deliverance respectively.
Mike Nigro, Enterprise UK and Ireland managing director, said, “Giving back is one of the core elements of our Cultural Compass, which we use across the business to define our strategy and measure our impact on local communities.
“Our success has been dependent on these local communities. They are where our branches are located, where our employees work and where our customers need mobility. We want to celebrate our 20th year in the UK by giving something back to the regions that have welcomed and supported us over so many years.”
The project will be funded by the UK business and the Enterprise Holdings Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Enterprise Holdings.
