Advancing Fuels of the Future

The Enterprise Holdings Foundation has created a $2 million endowment for sustainable energy research at the University of Missouri. Established in 2013, the endowment provides essential funding to help researchers take the next steps toward a prototype bio-processing facility to produce renewable fuel.

Smart Building System

To further enhance our energy reduction efforts, we’re expanding the smart building system we piloted in FY2014 in select neighborhood branches throughout North America. We plan to introduce our smart building system company-wide by 2017.


Through the Enterprise Holdings Foundation, we donated $27.5 million in FY2015. Eighty-six percent of the grants made by the foundation fulfilled requests by employees to help community causes they personally champion and actively support.
