HAE EHA took part in an online information session with government officials on Wednesday 31st January, about the call for evidence on decarbonising non-road mobile machinery (NRMM). The deadline for comments is Tuesday 26th March and the association is developing a response on behalf of the hire sector.
This is a critical issue for hire and rental, and also an opportunity to highlight the barriers to decarbonisation and take up of greener assets. During the information session HAE EHA raised the role hire plays in construction procurement and the need to address the level of cost between green and more traditional power sources, and the supporting infrastructure.
You can find details of the call for evidence here.
Finally, the Hire Association is also re-establishing its Net Zero Panel. Members that are interested in taking part, or wish to respond to the NRMM call for evidence should contact Mark Bradshaw, Public Affairs Manager on 0121 380 4621.
