Plymouth Rock Studios to use a hybrid-only fleet with help from Enterprise

Plymouth Rock Studios, a film and television Production Campus being developed in Plymouth, Massachusetts, has decided to go green with the rental cars that will undoubtedly be required by the actors, studio execs and visitors. In order to make this happen, they have teamed up with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, which has already seen some coverage here at AutoblogGreen. Enterprise will be providing the an all-hybrid fleet of rental cars to Plymouth Rock Studios, making them "an official Green Alliance Partner" with the studio ... for whatever that's worth. Hyperbole aside, offering a hybrid-only fleet is a step in the right direction and we hope that other studios can find a way to follow the example set here. Details after the break.

Press Release:

Plymouth Rock Studios and Enterprise Rent-A-Car today announced a new green partnership that will bring an increase in hybrid vehicle use to the town of Plymouth and to the state of Massachusetts.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car will serve as an official Green Alliance Partner of Plymouth Rock Studios and has committed to an expansion of its Plymouth-based hybrid vehicle fleet to meet the demand of the first all green film and television studio campus in the world.

This strategic alliance will provide alternatively powered hybrid vehicles to meet the vehicle rental demand of studio executives, actors, production entities and guests working at the studio.

"We see this as a major step forward in demonstrating our commitment to protecting the environment," said Thom Black, a managing partner at Plymouth Rock Studios. "To have a company like Enterprise Rent-A-Car join us as one of our lead Green Alliance Partners sends a strong signal that Plymouth Rock Studios intends to lead by example."

Plymouth Rock Studios is a film and television production campus being developed in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Upon completion, Plymouth Rock Studios will be the most technologically advanced film and television studio campus ever to be constructed.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car is the largest rental car company in North America and has demonstrated a commitment to alternatively powered vehicles. Enterprise last year announced a carbon offset program allowing customers the opportunity to participate in reducing the carbon emissions created by an average rental car, and the company has agreed to match customer contributions dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $1 million. In addition, the company has committed to having the nation's largest fleet of fuel-efficient vehicles.

Enterprise donated $25 million to create the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Institute for Renewable Fuels at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, as well as committing to plant 50 million trees over the next 50 years.

"Plymouth Rock Studios represents what can happen when people are committed to a best-in-class community that honors its natural heritage. We are thrilled to be a partner in their effort," said Andrew Feldman, Enterprise Rent-A-Car Regional Vice President of Plymouth.
