Lifting Sustainability

Sustainability is a buzzword that everyone uses these days. It is said to be important and most people try to contribute to a more sustainable life. For Riwal, sustainability is about preserving our quality of life, preserving all other life on Earth and the ecosystems. That is why we embrace sustainability and ensure that the earth remains liveable. And that is quite important!


For Riwal, our commitment to sustainability is much more than just words. We aligned our objectives with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. This gives us a framework to create a bold strategy and to measure its success.

This campaign is focused on Riwal’s strategy and initiatives related to environmental sustainability. It will mainly feature our efforts within those areas. If you want to learn more about our social and economical goals you can read about it on our corporate social responsibility landing page.

The UN describes the SDGs as ‘the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all’. They cover a wide range of topics, from poverty and education to energy and the environment.


Riwal has selected the following goals:

SDG Goal 6SDG Goal 7 - Affordable and Clean EnergySDG Goal 11 - Sustainable Cities and CommunitiesSDG Goal 12 - Responsible production and consumption

Find out how Riwal is contributing to these goals:

  • First and foremost, rental is a “green” solution. Recent research has confirmed that the total carbon emissions can be cut in half by renting instead of buying a machine.
  • Closer to home, our actions include making changes in our workplace, such as water recycling in workshop wash bays, and fitting LED lights to our depots and offices.
  • Finally, we are also leaders in all-electric aerial work platforms, including our unique range of 100% electric big booms which we convert ourselves.
