Additional information

Olivier COLLEAU, CEO of Kiloutou said: “Since its creation, Kiloutou reconciles economy, environment and people. The equipment rental business, based on the pooling of resources, is fully anchored in the economy of sharing and durability. From an economic and ecological point of view, this model is virtuous since renting makes it possible to reduce the carbon emissions of leased equipment by up to 50% compared to owned equipment over its entire lifecycle*. Our Group is now committed to carbon neutrality by 2050 through an unprecedented environmental strategy. However, to win this battle against climate change, we also need to find new solutions collectively with our employees, our clients, our suppliers, public and private ordering parties, scientists, local elected representatives and NGOs. This is the meaning of the environmental, societal and territorial impact initiative that we are launching and which will lead us to exchange with our stakeholders In order to complete our environmental strategy in the coming months." *Étude SGS Search / Climate Neutral Group / CE Delft, juin 2019
