Case Study: SiteSafe Surelock Pro
As an example of working with our supply chain, through a process of collaborative design with their supplier Metal & Modular, MEP Hire have managed to reduce embodied carbon emissions of the SiteSafe SureLock Pro through using 85% less welding and 90% less power use. Through this innovation, MEP Hire has saved over 20 tonnes of embodied CO2 and brought a significantly more sustainable product to market.
Case Study: Electric forklifts
Our business Groundforce has made great progress in switching 44 of our diesel forklifts to electric powered which saves 600 tonnes CO2 per year as well as cutting down on air pollution for our employees and wider stakeholders.
Examples of Zero Emissions of Point of Use Products
Our business MEP Hire operates 5,000 mechanical low-level access platforms.
The majority of which are zero emission and powered manually by the user.
Equally, our businesses TPA, Groundforce and Brandon Hire Station offer aluminium roadways, trench boxes and scaffold towers respectively, which are all fully recyclable.
