Green Policy

 

Europcar has partnered with WeForest so that together we can plant trees in the desert and give nature a helping hand.

Each time you rent a car, all you have to do is donate a green fee of just 50 euro cents. Then Europcar matches your donation, so that together we plant two trees in the Burkina Faso desert.
 
The project we have chosen to support with WeForest aims to protect the highly vulnerable region of the Burkina Faso Sahel from further degradation and impacts of climate change,  by reforesting 15 million hectares along a 15 km-wide, 7,775 km-long belt, from Dakar to Djibouti. This area is  part of the Great Green Wall (Grande Muraille Verte). The project has been developed by the African Union to fight desertification in South Sahara.
