ERA launches handbook on sustainability

16 April 2024

In today’s business landscape, sustainability is a top priority for companies across all sectors.

Recognising the importance of sustainability in the equipment rental industry, the European Rental Association (ERA) has launched a comprehensive handbook to guide rental companies towards greater sustainability practices.

The handbook addresses the challenges and opportunities surrounding sustainability in the rental sector.

With the aim of providing practical insights and actionable steps, the handbook covers a wide range of topics relevant to rental companies of all sizes.

From the full handbook, you will have the flexibility to delve into the different chapters as you wish, as each chapter will be hyperlinked to separate pages for easy navigation and access to specific topics.

One of the key focuses of the handbook is on the transition towards a more sustainable future, particularly in the context of energy transition and decarbonisation. It highlights the role of rental companies in driving sustainability through the adoption of eco-friendly technologies and practices.

Furthermore, the handbook explores the concept of a circular economy and zero waste, emphasising the importance of reusing materials and products to minimise waste. It also delves into workforce issues within rental companies.

Importantly, the handbook also sheds light on the evolving regulatory landscape in Europe, including upcoming legislation such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD).

It outlines the implications of these directives for rental companies and offers guidance on compliance and risk management.

Overall, the ERA’s handbook serves as a valuable resource for rental companies seeking to enhance their sustainability practices and unlock new opportunities for growth and value creation.
