View emissions level information of all United Rentals equipment online
United Rentals, Inc.'s online rental catalogue now includes emissions level information for all equipment. The ability to see the emissions level when selecting equipment helps companies and contractors make more informed decisions to choose the right equipment that supports their job site needs and sustainability goals.
Using the United Rentals online catalogue, companies can browse, search, and select equipment by filtering by emissions level. This new catalogue feature makes it easy to understand the environmental impact of different equipment options. The catalogue's four emissions level categories are:
- Zero emissions, which is comprised of equipment powered by battery, electric, or solar. This equipment creates no emissions when in use.
- Low emissions, which contains equipment powered by hybrid, propane, or natural gas engines.
- Lower diesel emissions, which encompass equipment with Tier 4 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) certified engines. Tier 4 engines are the most stringent emissions currently in place for diesel engines.
- Standard emissions, which include the most common gas or diesel-powered equipment. The equipment is powered by USEPA-certified engines.
In the catalogue, equipment with zero or low emissions are indicated by a green symbol next to the cat class. Companies can learn more about emissions options, including types and featured equipment in the catalogue, by going to the United Rentals equipment emissions webpage.
"We are committed to providing our customers with a wide range of equipment options to support their sustainability goals," says Joli Gross, senior vice president of general counsel and corporate secretary of United Rentals. "With our new online catalogue feature, we give customers the power to select equipment to create lower-emission worksites without compromising safety or productivity."
