United Rentals Launches New Fleet Emissions Management Platform

Dec. 16, 2023
Users can view estimated emissions data by equipment category class, time, or job site.

United Rentals has added an emissions dashboard to its Total Control asset-management platform. Estimated Emissions enables users to view equipment and job sites through the lens of current and historical estimated carbon emissions.

The dashboard helps users understand their equipment emissions and make data-based decisions to enact changes that will yield the most significant results, according to United Rentals.

Users can view estimated emissions data—specifically, estimated metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent—by equipment category class, time, or job site. From any view, users can filter the data by time period, account, job site and category class.

Each view provides data cards highlighting important information. This includes total estimated emissions of all rental equipment, the highest estimated emissions in a single month, and the cat class with the highest total estimated emissions.

"Reducing job site emissions is a priority for many construction companies and project owners, but it is difficult to manage what you cannot measure," said Tony Leopold, United Rentals SVP of strategy and digital, in a statement. "Access to easily digestible, shareable data on estimated emissions is the first step in the drive to reduce a job site's carbon footprint."

The Estimated Emissions dashboard is part of the suite of United Rentals’ sustainability offerings, which includes digital tools, power generation alternatives, battery energy storage systems, micro grids and electric or hybrid equipment.
