November 21, 2013

PARK RIDGE, NJ — The Hertz Corporation announced it will be washing its rental cars with a waterless, non-toxic "green clean" solution at 220 of its locations, a press release reported.

The Nov. 21 press release stated that Hertz hopes to use the waterless solution at all of its locations and hopes to save more than 130 million gallons of water a year. 

Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mark P. Frissora stated in the press release, "Managing one of the largest car rental fleets in the world requires a significant amount of carwashing. Moving to a waterless carwash system is another innovative way Hertz is addressing both its sustainability and business needs. We have been able to achieve significant environmental and cost savings while continuing to offer customers the best fleet in the industry."

Hertz worked with Green Team Partners, LLC ("Green Team Partners") to develop the solution, the press release noted.

Max Krumer, president of Green Team Partners, stated in the press release, "We were very excited to bring our processes and products to Hertz and even more thrilled when Hertz adopted our waterless detailer program for its fleet. To see a large organization put such great emphasis on going green and investing in sustainability efforts is amazing, and we're glad to be part of Hertz's efforts."
