Being a responsible business has always been crucial to us. We are passionate about our people, the environment, and the communities in which we live and work. We care deeply about making the best impact possible on all our stakeholders and we are proud of the impact we have had in helping our people, customers, suppliers, and communities. When we announced our new strategic plan, Sunbelt 3.0 last year, for the first time, we embedded our ESG priorities. This added a layer of transparency and accountability to the work we do in this area and has placed ever greater emphasis on our environmental and social priorities. We have always said that being responsible is in our DNA but now it’s front and center, and visible in everything we do.
The rental industry is hugely beneficial for the environment as it leads to the most efficient use of equipment and the manufacture of fewer assets. Significant carbon emissions and consumption of earth’s natural resources take place during the manufacture of a piece of equipment. At the end of its life, that equipment requires disposal. Fewer, better designed pieces of equipment utilized as part of a sharing economy are better for our planet.
Protecting the environment has always been an important element of how we work. We report on how we use resources efficiency, reduce the impact of our business on the environment and provide a greener fleet to our customers. Learn about our commitments and achievements
