My Car Your Rental Nominated for NZI Awards

My Car Your Rental Nominated for NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards

Car sharing platform being recognized for encouraging sustainability in New Zealand

SEPTEMBER 1, 2016 - The team at My Car Your Rental is excited to announce that they have been selected as a nominee for the upcoming NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards. My Car Your Rental will soon find out which category they have been nominated for.

Since the platform’s launch, My Car Your Rental has encouraged sustainability in New Zealand by offering a seamless hub where people can share and rent vehicles. With growing traffic problems in New Zealand, My Car Your Rental aims to offer an alternative for those who need a ride while providing a way for vehicle owners to make money from their cars.

The NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards focuses on 4 areas: renewables, community, mega efficiency, and restorative. According to the organization, these transformative areas are crucial to the future direction of New Zealand’s sustainability. Within each area, there are awards for innovation and impact, and there are also awards for Communicating Sustainability, Energy Management, and Sustainability Champion. The top award, NZI Greatest Contribution to a Sustainable New Zealand, goes to a single business with remarkable performance in all areas of sustainability.

My Car Your Rental has pioneered the ride sharing market in New Zealand by offering Kiwis a simple, streamlined platform for renting and renting out their vehicles. On the company’s websites, users can browse available rental vehicles by a number of preferences. Users can even find fuel-efficient vehicles by using criteria for fuel consumption, which gives Kiwis a way to be even more environmentally friendly and economical.

By helping car owners rent out their vehicles, My Car Your Rental effectively takes hundreds of vehicles off of roadways and helps people slow down on fuel emissions. Users are also backed by the peace of mind of full coverage insurance, and users can leave ratings to share their experiences with others. My Car Your Rental also supports stronger community relations and local economy.

My Car Your Rental is thrilled to announce their nomination for a NZI Sustainable Business Network Award and will offer more information as it becomes available. The awards are sponsored by Sustainable Business Network (SBN), which works with businesses in the four aforementioned transformation areas. Details about the awards can be found at
