Our Journey to Net Zero

From running our entire fleet on HVO fuel to encouraging the use of low emission fuels, Speedy Fuels is dedicated to fuelling a greener future to help protect our environment. Find out what steps we’re taking as part of our journey to Net Zero.

OUR GOAL: Our operations will be certified carbon neutral by April 2022. We then aim to achieve Net Zero direct emissions (Scope 1 & 2) by 2030 or sooner.

How will we declare Net Zero?

  • Carbon Strategy Report performed by an external consultancy which sets out where we are now and the steps that we need to take over the next 5 years to reduce our carbon footprint
  • Implementing a robust and transparent Carbon Reduction and Reporting Strategy which is aligned to international standards (PAS 2060, GHG protocol)
  • All our emissions will be externally verified by a consultancy on an annual basis and the reports freely available to all stakeholders

How will we get there?

  • 2012

    We began voluntarily offsetting our entire fleet’s delivery emissions

  • 2018

    We heavily invested in Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, a direct fossil diesel alternative

  • 2021

    We switched our delivery fleet to HVO and started office efficiency upgrades

  • 2022

    Our operations will be certified carbon neutral by April 2022

  • 2023

    Our offices will be powered by renewable energy

  • 2028

    Our fuel system will be upgraded

  • 2029

    Our small vehicles will be upgraded to electric

  • 2030

    We will have Net Zero direct emissions (Scope 1 & 2)

Our entire fleet is run on HVO fuel

We can’t expect our customers to change their fuels without changing our own. That’s why we’ve moved our entire fleet over to HVO fuel to showcase the fuel’s ability to perform faultlessly as a diesel alternative. As part of the Crown Group, this makes us the first fuel suppliers in the country to switch our entire fleet over to an advanced renewable diesel fuel to help drive down the UK’s emissions.

This move will save more than 3080 tonnes of net CO2 emissions every year which is Our current Group emissions (scope 1, 2 and selected group 3 which we have direct control over) are approximately 5,000 tCO2e (19/20 baseline). By switching our fleet to HVO, we will reduce these emissions by approximately 2,983 tCO2e.

Encouraging the use of clean fuel alternatives

The UK’s Net Zero target is fast approaching and reducing harmful emissions has never been more important. Change is coming, so why not lead the way?

We encourage all our customers to change their fuels to greener alternatives in order to help change our future. From HVO fuel to Carbon Offset Red Diesel and Carbon Clean Kerosene, we continually urge our customers to swap their fossil fuels for sustainable, readily available clean-burning alternatives.

Carbon neutral deliveries since 2012

We’ve been voluntarily offsetting our delivery mileage for a decade. This allows us to counteract the greenhouse gas emissions released when we deliver our customers’ fuel. Since switching our fleet to HVO, we are continuing to offset any remaining emissions.

How does carbon offsetting work?

We purchase carbon credits which fund investment projects that provide an equivalent reduction in harmful emissions around the world. These activities cut emissions or absorb carbon dioxide, as well as improve the lives of others, promote biodiversity and fund investments into renewable energy.

Initiatives include planting trees, improving people’s wellbeing and helping tackle poverty in developing nations. This ensures there is no net increase in global greenhouse gas emissions as a result of our operations and is backed up with verified carbon credits.

Optimising our tanker fleet

We regularly update our all DAF-fleet to ensure our tankers are as modern, efficient and reliable as possible. Using one manufacturer ensures we can streamline the maintenance of our vehicles and helps us to prioritise the safety of our drivers.

We also optimise our delivery routes to ensure our journeys are well planned to help avoid unnecessary mileage and carbon emissions as a result.
