Sustainability is a critical topic for most business sectors today and is firmly on the agenda for the majority of boards. Yet the proliferation of legislation and voluntary standards, together with the complexity of subjects such as climate change, can make it a challenging area to engage with. Companies and managers are faced with an increasing challenge to both keep abreast of their obligations, as well as identify opportunities for growth and value creation as the transition economy emerges.

This challenge is particularly acute in the equipment rental industry. The industry is in the process of energy transition and decarbonisation while grappling with the challenges of immature energy systems and uncertainties around future technology, economics and regulation. In addition, the equipment rental industry sits downstream from extensive global supply chains which bring their own issues in supplier management, whether in human rights, sustainable resource extraction or other areas of responsible business conduct.

In the light of these trends and opportunities in the equipment rental industry, ERA Sustainability Handbook was commissioned by the European Rental Association (ERA) to assist parties in the equipment rental sector to engage further with the sustainability agenda, no matter what their scale. It draws together a range of accessible best practice to help equipment manufacturers, rental companies, and others active in the European equipment rental sector reach greater levels of maturity and unlock the value of sustainability on a practical level – for themselves, for their clients, and for the wider world.
