  Schindler Elevator Corporation Reduces Greenhouse Gases with New Vehicle

Business Wire

MORRISTOWN, N.J. -- February 5, 2013

Continuing its commitment to conducting business activities in harmony with
society and the environment, Schindler Elevator Corporation is replacing more
than 500 sedans in their North American vehicle fleet with the Toyota Prius
Two, a gas-electric hybrid car which is expected to reduce greenhouse gases by
42% over the company’s current sedan fleet. The fleet replacement will take
place over the next three to four years.

The company’s additional 2,000-plus non-sedan fleet was replaced in 2010 with
the Chevy HHR, which has already saved an average of 2,358 gallons of gasoline
per year, resulting in a reduction in fleet greenhouse emissions by 34%.

“Schindler’s commitment to environmental stewardship is evident in all that we
do, including: the ‘greening’ of our North American headquarters building, our
sustainable ISO-certified manufacturing facilities, the
environmentally-friendly vehicles we use, and the energy-efficient technology
we provide,” says Jakob Zueger, CEO, Schindler Americas. “We are dedicated to
continual improvement to limit environmental impact.”
