IPAF Webinar: Sustainability in the powered access industry

Online webinar
20 May 2021, 12.00pm UK time (GMT+1)

This webinar will explore issues around the future of environmental sustainability in the powered access industry and what we can do now to make a difference. IPAF’s three-year plan includes a commitment to reducing our carbon footprint through our own environmental sustainability project. The pandemic has accelerated the need for a quick shift in many businesses to up their game in digitisation, virtual and online activities. In parallel, the industry has recently seen a massive diversion towards electrification of MEWPs, with electric machines becoming the choice of manufacturers and rental companies alike. What else can the powered access industry do to reduce its carbon footprint? What best practice can we learn from each other? Guest speakers will share their thoughts and perspectives on the issues faced in the industry and how we can all make a difference in the face of the climate crisis.
