Coates debuts sustainable equipment range

More equipment powered by diesel, electricity and solar power will be made available by Coates Australia in a new sustainability push

The low diesel particulate emissions engine telehandler is among the Greener Choices range by Coates Australia

A more emissions-friendly telehandler is among the products launched by Coates Australia as part of its Greener Choices range of equipment.

The telehandler features a low diesel particulate emissions engine that is compliant with Stage 5 emissions regulations.

A forklift, which is powered by the same engine, is also available.

Other innovations in the Greener Choices range includes electric and hybrid boom and scissors lifts, a large range of battery powered hand tools, and blended biodiesel, up to B7, which will be used across all Coates’ diesel engine-powered plant and equipment.

Greener lighting solutions such as solar powered, hybrid and portable LED options are also included, as are electric, lithium-ion battery-powered forklifts and other equipment for warehouse use.

“Coates Greener Choices range offers customers tangible opportunities to reduce emissions, improve efficiencies and commit to best practice environmental sustainability standards,” says Coates chief executive Murray Vitlich.

“As Australia’s leading equipment and solutions provider, we are focused on providing more sustainable equipment and solutions that support our customers’ sustainability goals and help guide our suppliers in making greener choices in product design and manufacture.

“We are committed to further developing our Greener Choice range of equipment and solutions and recognise that the criteria for inclusion in this range will continue to evolve as the industry advances and new technologies emerge.”

The Greener Choices range follows a sustainability strategy unveiled by Coates last year, which outlined five key pillars for the business as it moves into the future, one of which is greener choices.

The framework is based on the principles of designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use and regenerating natural systems.

“To have real impact on the world, we need to not only change the way we think and act, but also enable and inspire others to act as well,” Vitlich says.

“There are challenges ahead, but by working together with our customers and supply chain, we can turn shared vision into meaningful action.”
