Car rental company going green with new projects

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Enterprise Rent-A-Car says it will spend $150 million over five years to make all of its locations environmentally friendly.
The St. Louis-based company announced its Enterprise Sustainable Construction Protocol on Wednesday. It says all newly constructed and retrofitted locations will be designed, built and managed with sustainability in mind.
Enterprise says its efforts will focus on seven areas, including use of sustainable materials, energy efficiency, recycling and process innovation.
The company says the goal is a healthy workplace and a long-term savings though lower consumption of water and energy.
Company officials say sustainable building and retrofit projects are anticipated at more than 1,000 Enterprise locations.
