United Rentals launches carbon emissions estimator

United Rentals has launched an ‘Estimated Emissions’ dashboard that enables users to estimate carbon emissions from rented equipment, including historic, present or future equipment use.

The digital tool, which is available through United’s ‘Total Control’ cloud-based platform, aims to help customers understand their equipment emissions and make data-based decisions on equipment management.

Users can view estimated emissions data – in metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent – by equipment category, time or jobsite. Customers can filter data by time period, account, jobsite and equipment class.

Data cards highlight information such as total estimated emissions, the highest emissions in a single month, and the equipment class with the highest estimated emissions.

“Reducing jobsite emissions is a priority for many construction companies and project owners, but it is difficult to manage what you cannot measure,” said Tony Leopold, senior vice president of Strategy & Digital, United Rentals.

“Access to easily digestible, shareable data on estimated emissions is the first step in the drive to reduce a jobsite’s carbon footprint. With the Estimated Emissions dashboard in Total Control, United Rentals puts this data, and the power to act on it, at our customers’ fingertips.”

United said the dashboard was one of a number of sustainability-related offerings, including digital tools, power generation alternatives, battery energy storage systems, micro grids and electric or hybrid equipment.
