Each new biomethane truck can run up to 500 miles and emits over 80% less CO2 than a standard diesel alternative. Overall, the entire HGV fleet, once converted, will save more than 49,000 tonnes of CO2 every year - equivalent to the carbon footprint of just over 6,000 UK households.
Longer term, we will need to transition to a fully electric heavy vehicle fleet. However, current technology and infrastructure does not support this. As the UK’s electric vehicle infrastructure improves over the coming decades, we will develop our transport strategy in response - switching our heavy vehicle, van delivery and e-commerce fleets to electric vehicles.
