What To Look For In Equipment When Striving For Zero Emissions

Sustainability is no longer out of reach. Whether you’re a landscaper looking for a better and more sustainable lawn mower, or a housing developer determined to achieve the highest standards without impacting the environment, there are incredible technological innovations you can leverage to achieve sustainability. What should you look for when you’re introducing new, sustainable tools into your business?

Zero C02 emissions

Pollution isn’t only hazardous to the health of plants, animals and people, C02 emissions are also behind the global warming phenomena. Reducing the number of pollutants and the amount of C02 we emit into the atmosphere is one of the most significant changes we can make in moving towards sustainable business practices. Look for equipment that has zero emissions output. It might not be possible to source equipment that is sustainably sourced, manufactured, transported, and maintained, but opting for equipment that doesn’t further pollute the air is a great realistic goal.

100% electricity

While electricity isn’t sustainable, using equipment that is powered by being charged with electricity is still a major step forward. Running a comparison between standard fuel-powered vehicles against newer rechargeable vehicles, like those manufactured by Elon Musk’s company Tesla, demonstrates a number of benefits – including a cleaner environment. Similarly, smaller brands like EcoTeq who produce electric lawnmowers, places further demand on the markets for sustainable power and pushes the move towards sustainable power too. By supporting these types of brands, you’re part of the movement that will eventually call for greener power sources.

Machines built with a low-carbon footprint manufacturing process

It’s not always possible to escape all emissions, this is understandable. The goal is to do as much as you can. In the instances where there is no emission-free alternative to your current equipment, opt for equipment that comes with a low-carbon footprint manufacturing process. This requires a little research but if you truly want to make a difference, it is well worth the effort. Keep on hand a list of companies you believe are truly sustainable and support them in your business and in your personal dealings.

Manufactured from up to 92% recyclable materials

Look for products that are manufactured using recycled goods. When you understand how complex and involved the manufacturing process is behind something as simple as a plastic shopping bag, you understand why supporting the practice of recycling is absolutely imperative. The more we reuse, the more we reduce the demand for fossil fuels and other manufacturing processes that harm the environment and use more of our precious resources than is actually necessary.
