NetHire aims to reduce CO2 emissions by reusing old construction materials for the production of new stock. NetHire boosts the construction industry's environmental efforts by being a leading figure in the circular and sharing economy. Through this Solution waste is considered as a resource, which should primarily be recyclable directly for the same purpose, or recycled in new products for other purposes.

Implementation Stories

NetHire by NetHire
Implemented by Solar A/S in Copenhagen (Denmark) in 2020

Solar A/S, one of Denmark’s largest solar equipment wholesalers, started to use NetHire’s service in 2020. By signing an open-ended contract, with a 24-month termination, their customers get access to the NetHire Community of 6,300 pieces of equipment. It allows their customers to book equipment and to have it delivered on site in an hour (average). After use, the user has to order a pick-up to return the equipment. It allows savings in transport time, as the delivery and pickup are done by a professional transporter who optimizes the transport, instead of single workmen driving forth and back. As the worksman stays onsite, he is 15% more productive.


During the last 18 months, 5,700 bookings were carried out, made by 2,500 registered users
