We take a precautionary approach to environmental decisions. Reducing our ecological footprint is a continuous focus area and a priority at Cramo, and our aim is to be the most climate- and resource-efficient rental solutions company.
Mitigating climate impact
We are constantly working to mitigate our climate impact by reducing energy usage, switching to fossil-free energy sources, and reusing and recycling materials.
Improving energy efficiency
Reducing energy usage in transport, lighting and heating are key aspects of our sustainability work.
Our rental services include the transport of machinery and equipment to our customers. Items are also transported between depots as well as to customer sites. With route optimisation and improved driving patterns, we strive to reduce the number and length of transports, thus also reducing emissions.
Another important aspect is reducing business travel. We promote and facilitate web and phone meetings whenever possible, and video conferences are increasingly used throughout the Group.
All depot signage upgraded with LED lighting
In 2016, we decided to upgrade the lighting for all our depot signage at over 300 locations with LED lights. Implementation started in 2017 and was completed in 2018. As a result of the upgrade, both energy use and energy costs of depot signage are expected to be cut by 65%.
We work systematically to increase material efficiency and to reduce waste, especially mixed waste and waste to landfill. Priority issues are the handling of hazardous waste and increasing the share of waste for recycling.
