Sustainability

Event Rental Group endeavors to be an industry leader through the implementation of dynamic environmental standards and practices that show our duty to fulfill corporate and social obligations.

We strive to ensure the environment is considered in our day by day tasks. This is of most extreme significance to our prosperity as a company that cares; now and into the future.

This commitment guarantees that the entirety of our exercises is in line with ecological laws and guidelines.

At Event rental group, we’re always looking for ways to reduce our environmental footprint.

Our fleet… onto Greener pastures!

In the past our trucks were required to be newer than 6 years old, however, we’ve moved to newer than 4 years old in 2019 for all our straight trucks to achieve maximum fuel efficiency and reliability.

  • • New vehicles in general are more fuel efficient and have lower emissions than older ones. These trucks also have the latest technology to limit emissions of particulates and nitrogen oxide.
  • • We’ve taken measures to further lighten our trucks by switching to lighter tailgates among other components, which can make a drastic difference in fuel consumption; especially on shorter “stop and go” trips.

Location, location, location….

Fuel efficient systems alone won’t allow us to reach maximum efficiency if our average distance to our customers is large. Our East York location puts us within 15 KM’s of most of our deliveries.

With all these factors considered, this means in optimal conditions a delivery to the downtown core in a straight truck may consume as little as 4.2 liters of diesel fuel.*

Laundry/linen department

Event Rental Group supplies a wide selection of polyester linens which have many “green” benefits, some of which are listed below:

  • • Polyester is stronger and more resistant to chemicals than cotton, so fabrics last longer. Linens are replaced less frequently.
  • • Polyester is 100% recyclable, with results in fewer linens going to landfills.
  • • Polyester linens do not need to be dried before ironing. Skipping this step saves on natural gas and/or electric energy

Our primary linen suppliers are forward thinking with regards to the environment.

  • • Milliken & Co. maintains its carbon negative certification, unique to the textile industry, through reliable sources, sequestration and energy reduction.
  • • Ultimate Textiles have just developed a new product which is made from 100% recycled polyester. Plastic bottles will be turned into polyester thread and woven into fabric to make linens.

Linen & Dish Room Maintenance

Event Rental Group has partnered with many environmentally friendly companies. Ecolab services our washing equipment is an established company with social responsibility to the global community. They have assisted Event Rental Group in saving water and energy. The wastewater we produce is closely monitored to ensure we operate within municipal wastewater standards. Ecolab has reformulated products to remove chemicals that harm aquatic life or damage the environment.

Additional Efforts

In early 2020 we switched the lighting at our 210 Wicksteed location to high efficiency, LED lights. This change is expected to eliminate hundreds of thousands of KWH’s of demand over the course of a single year.

Event Rental Group endeavors to sell or donate used equipment rather than throwing away. In addition, we have our own in-house repair shop and paint shop which helps to extend the life of rental items. We also will cut down worn wooden tables into smaller sizes to divert as much waste from landfills as possible.

We have constructed protective packaging for some of our more fragile items in the form of wood boxes, while the may be a bit bulky and heavy they have a long shelf life thereby reducing the need to replace them often, the material is recyclable and prolongs the life of our identified fragile equipment (silver chafing dishes, samovars etc.).
Event Rental Group stocks numerous “green” products such as soya candles and “Green Shift” paper products for those clients that have an increased awareness of environmental sustainability.

Event Rental Group has a paper, wood, and metal recycling program. Recycling bins are provided and services by Miller Waste Systems.

Our Administration and Customer Service staff strive to conserve ink and paper unnecessarily consumed by printing. Most work is communicated via email allowing many transactions to be processed electronically, saving both paper and time.

Event Rental Group wish is to be a good neighbour and partner within the communities we serve, and we are proud to continue to find ways in our responsibility to be as sustainable as possible.
