Finnish rental specialist Ramirent has published a 40-page report detailing its efforts in the field of sustainability.
The company, which turned over more than €600 million in 2014, said that: “Renting a machine is fundamentally sustainable compared to owning one. Renting releases enterprise resources, and sharing of equipment among several users helps to reduce environmental load.
“In addition to renting a machine, we provide our customers with user guidance, safety instructions and necessary safety equipment. Our experts conduct on-site safety trainings that cover for example fall, noise and dust protection. Before the project starts, we can produce a digitalised visualisation and risk analysis of the site.”
Ramirent has identified specific sustainability trends driving the business including increased equipment outsourcing, changes in population, environmental regulations and technological breakthroughs.
Investments during 2014 included moveable washing stations, environmentally safe fuel tanks and energy-efficient lighting systems for sites in Poland and the Baltic region.
