At TCR we value and respect the environment and work to reduce emissions and waste through the electrification of our GSE fleet, carbon footprint reduction and recycling of batteries.

Fleet electrification

  • 38% of our global motorised GSE fleet is electric; well above the market average
  • 70% of TCR’s total tractor fleet is electric
  • 45 different brands of electrical GSE are maintained and offered by TCR

Carbon footprint

TCR’s dedicated Innovation department constantly explores technologies to reduce the environmental impact of GSE and to extend life cycles through the recycling cradle-to-cradle concept (fuel efficiency, charging and storage times of batteries, etc.)

The CO2 production related to each asset is known by TCR from cradle-to-cradle, enabling customers to obtain:

  • Environmental performance information
  • Total carbon cost and impact over lifetime of equipment
  • Control over energy consumption per model
  • Compliance with local legislations’ monitoring


Battery recycling

TCR has won industry recognition for its efforts in the recycling of batteries:

  • TCR’s collects all its batteries used in Europe which are then recycled through specialized companies
  • 97% of lead-acid batteries are recycled
  • Our Innovation department is investigating and piloting the use of Lithium-ion batteries
