MORRISTOWN, NJ--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.

“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”

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."
