In this case, the business is converting its home delivery fleet to run on used cooking oil having conducted a three month trial of the renewable low carbon diesel alternative. This will bring an immediate 90 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions once fully live by September and requires no modifications to vehicles.

The introduction of HVO is another exciting milestone in our long-term sustainability plan and it also plays a pivotal part in delivering against the government’s target for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.”
