UK-based rental company Nixon Hire has said it is stepping up its efforts to become a net zero company by joining a number of green initiatives.

The company has recently joined the ERA Sustainability Commitee, where its SHEQ director Anthony Livermore is helping to research the carbon footprint of construction equipment, develop the ERA Equipment CO2 calculator and produce a Sustainable Supplier Framework to raise common practices. 

Meanwhile, the company is now a member of the Construction Leadership Council where it is part of the Construction Zero partnership that supports and contributes to the industry project of zero carbon.

The company said membership includes the commitment to and benefits of:

  • Signposting and support
  • Communications and engagement
  • Performance metrics
  • Internal ESG champions

Nixon also signed up to ‘Pledge To Net Zero’ in February, an industry-led initiative focused on reducing the GHG emissions in the environmental sector and partner to the UN’s Race to Zero campaign.

Newcastle-headquartered Nixon has previously outlined a strategy to become a net zero operation by 2035. Last year it opened its first depot for renewable solutions in Wolverhampton, which is fitted with solar panels that enable  while a number of its other depots have adopted measures to maximise energy savings and carbon emission reductions.

The company employs more than 540 people across England and Scotland, where it has 15 depots. It first launched its renewables division in 2019. Its range of solutions includes solar hybrid generators, battery storage units, solar lights and solar smart frames.
