United Rentals, Inc. (NYSE: URI) today announced a new data-driven solution in its cloud-based Total Control® fleet management platform that helps to provide information customers can use as part of their programs to monitor and manage their environmental impact. With Total Control Emissions Tracking, companies can create estimated GHG and engine emissions reports based on the rental equipment they use, which could help advance their sustainability strategies.
Total Control Emissions Tracking is designed to help customers measure and evaluate the environmental footprint of their rental equipment. It provides customers insights that can lead to informed decision-making on how they can make fleet and utilization changes to decrease equipment emissions. The digital solution captures telematics-based equipment engine time usage data, fuel type, and more. It uses published emission factors to estimate GHG and source pollutant emissions such as nitrous oxides, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter, which customers are then encouraged to verify for compliance reporting purposes.
“We are focused on delivering tangible innovations that support our customers’ sustainability efforts,” said Tony Leopold, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Digital at United Rentals. “This new Total Control solution will help customers monitor and manage their emissions which will help build a cleaner economy.”
