United Rentals adds emissions information to online marketplace

Dec. 04, 2022

United Rentals, Stamford, Conn., has added emissions level information for all equipment on its online rental catalog. Companies can browse, search and select equipment by filtering by emissions level. This new catalog feature makes it easy to understand the environmental impact of different equipment options. The catalog’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 catalog, equipment with zero or low emissions also 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 catalog, 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,” said Joli Gross, United Rentals senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary. “With our new online catalog feature, we give customers the power to select equipment to create lower-emission worksites without compromising safety or productivity.”
