Equipment rental company United Rentals announced today the launch of Total Control Emissions Tracking, a new data-driven solution designed to help customers measure and report the environmental footprint of their rental equipment.
The new tool was launched in the company’s cloud-based fleet management platform, Total Control, adding to the platform’s existing sustainability and efficiency-focused capabilities, including tracking engine hours to help reduce engine idling, and tracking fleet utilization to help right-size fleets.
Joli Gross, Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary at United Rentals, said:
“As the industry leader, we recognize our responsibility, and the opportunity, to help reduce global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We are committed to finding innovative and eco-conscious ways for ourselves and customers to Work United build a better, more sustainable future together.”
The new tool enables companies to create estimated GHG and engine emissions reports based on the rental equipment they use. It provides insights that can help customers understand how they can make fleet and utilization changes to reduce equipment emissions. The solution also uses published emission factors to estimate greenhouse gas emissions and source pollutant emissions.
Tony Leopold, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Digital at United Rentals, said:
“We are focused on delivering tangible innovations that support our customers’ sustainability efforts. This new Total Control solution will help customers monitor and manage their emissions which will help build a cleaner economy.”
