June 15, 2007

NEBRASKA CITY, NEB— The National Arbor Day Foundation recently honored Enterprise Rent-A-Car with an award for its dedication to planting trees.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, based in St. Louis, is one of only 20 individuals, groups or organizations honored for its environmental stewardship at the 2007 Arbor Day Awards banquet, held at the Lied Lodge & Conference Center in Nebraska City, Neb. The June 2 event, was hosted by the Arbor Day Foundation.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car received the Promise to the Earth Award, recognizing sustained commitment and leadership by a corporation that joins with the Arbor Day Foundation on special projects.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car has pledged $1 million a year for the next 50 years to plant trees in national forests damaged by wildfire. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the company, Enterprise Rent-A-Car teamed with the Arbor Day Foundation in 2006 to begin work on the 50 Million Tree Pledge.

"Organizations like Enterprise Rent-A-Car are truly making a difference by putting their values into thoughtful actions that will have a lasting, positive effect in the world," said John Rosenow, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Every tree planted because of Enterprise's efforts adds to the hope of a positive future for our environment."

The Arbor Day Foundation has granted National Arbor Day Awards since 1972. Past winners include Wangari Maathai, who also won a Nobel Peace Prize; Chicago Mayor Richard Daley; former U.S. Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall; veteran newsman Bill Kurtis; the Toyota Motor Corporation; and the Walt Disney Company.
