Our Approach to Sustainability

Energy-Efficient Machinery: Leading the Way in Green Plant Hire

Rabbit & Dowling is at the forefront of integrating energy-efficient machinery within our fleet. This commitment ensures we offer our clients the most environmentally friendly options available, minimising carbon emissions and maximising efficiency. Here's how we're making a difference:

  • Upgrading Fleet: We regularly update our machinery to include models that are not only more reliable but also greener, reducing overall emissions and improving energy efficiency.
  • Adopting New Technologies: We are exploring the use of electric and hydrogen-powered equipment, aiming to incorporate sustainable alternatives as they become viable for the industry.

Our commitment extends beyond just offering energy-efficient machinery:

  • Recycling and Reuse: Emphasising the importance of recycling and reusing materials in our operations and on job sites, contributing to a circular economy.
  • Environmental Compliance: Ensuring all equipment meets or exceeds environmental regulations, with continuous monitoring and adaptation to new sustainability standards.
  • Sustainable Operations: Implementing practices that reduce waste and improve efficiency across all areas of our business, from maintenance routines to the logistics of equipment delivery and collection.

Integrating Group-Wide Sustainability Initiatives

Group-Level Environmental Practices:

  • Transition to Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: Rabbit Plant Hire benefits from the Rabbit Group's initiative to transition to a greener fleet. Our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint is reinforced by incorporating electric and hybrid vehicles where viable, leading the way in eco-friendly plant hire solutions.
  • Paperless Operations: Aligning with the Group's digital transformation, we minimise paper use in our operations. From electronic invoicing to digital management of contracts and service records, Rabbit Plant Hire leverages technology to benefit the environment.
