Choose Sustainable Product Options

In recent years, we have introduced a range of eco-conscious products designed to make your site more environmentally friendly. Consider battery powered products as an alternative to diesel operated products. Battery-powered products produce no direct carbon emissions while in use, reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Battery-powered products often comply with strict regulations on emissions, eliminating the need for additional equipment. GAP has a variety of battery-powered products from our Plant and Tools range including Dumpers, Telehandlers, Cut-Off Saws, Rammers and more.  

Take a look at our Eco and Innovative Products Catalogue for further details.

Invest in Solar

Solar Powered products harness clean, renewable energy, eliminating the need for traditional grid electricity or fuel. Making them highly-energy efficient and cost-effective. Solar power means these products produce no harmful emissions, reducing your site’s overall environmental impact.

Explore GAP’s range of Solar Tower Lights, ideal for areas where CO2 emissions must be minimised. Additionally, our Solar and Zero Welfare Units reduce carbon emissions and fuel usage.

Introduce Stage V

GAP’s latest division, Pump Services, offers the largest, most modern fleet of Stage V pumps, equipped with solar panels and telematics. Stage V engines are built to release fewer pollutants, improving air quality and reducing environmental impact. Stage V also ensures compliance with more local and national regulations, helping you avoid fines and legal issues.

A number of our Plant equipment, including Telehandlers, Dumpers and Excavators are also available with the eco-friendly Stage V engine. Opting for Stage V engines demonstrates a commitment to environmental responsibility and aligns with global efforts to combat climate change.
