The Green Lift

At Russell Equipment, we have made the decision to leave our planet a better place for successive generations.

I am proud to announce The Green Lift; a comprehensive social, economic, and environmental investment initiative designed for our company to reduce our carbon footprint, increase climate awareness, eliminate single-use plastic waste, create a stronger social culture, and ultimately leave our communities and the planet a cleaner place for tomorrow. We look forward to continuously evolving this mission to include a 100% carbon-neutral certification by 2030.  - Michael Russell, President & CEO
