Report highlights the following achievements:

Fleet: For travelers, 74% of Hertz's car rental fleet averages 28+ mpg and the
Company's Green Traveler Collection features low emission and fuel efficient
vehicles which average better than 48+ mpg. This collection includes a range
of Hybrids, Electric, CNG, and clean diesel vehicles. Additionally, Hertz is
exploring a range of cars and buses that use alternative fuels and
technologies for airport transportation.

Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation also maintains a sustainable fleet with 70%
of earthmoving equipment powered by low-emission engines in models that are
2012 and newer, which reduce air-pollution by 90% vs older models. Donlen,
Hertz's fleet leasing management company, has assisted companies in reducing
fleet emissions through Fleets for Change, with a goal of minimizing
commercial fleet greenhouse gas emissions by 20% over five years. And,
Donlen's DriverPoint Telematics measures the impact of driver behavior on fuel
economy to reinforce green driving behaviors to implement change.

Facilities: Hertz applies U.S. Green Building Council's LEED standards for new
construction projects and will certify select sites, in addition to
energy-efficient improvements and recycling at its global facilities. Energy
efficiency upgrades in 2012 saved almost 4,000,000 kWh and 2,791 metric tons
of CO2 and Hertz's solar panel systems installed at facilities across the
country produced more than 2.5 million kWh of electricity annually, enough to
power 217 homes for a year.

Recycling: Hertz prioritizes materials and goods that can be recycled and
reused. In 2012, Hertz U.S. operations recycled more than 5.2 million pounds
of office paper, saving the equivalent of 18.5 million gallons of water and
45,000 trees. Hertz's Equipment Rental locations have recycled more than
194,000 gallons of used oil. In 2012, Hertz's New Jersey headquarters
increased recycling by 50% and reduced waste disposal costs by 65% and the
Company's cafeterias recycle a variety of paper and plastic, diverting
thousands of tons of waste from landfills annually.

Community: Hertz sponsors the United Way, American Red Cross, Make-A-Wish
Foundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Habitat for Humanity and many
local organizations providing financial contributions and service
opportunities for employees. Hertz also support veterans through its Hertz for
Heroes initiative and has a protocol established to provide quick response and
