Global integrated logistics and material management company ASCO is investing in hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) to power its transport fleet.
The company is investing over £10million (€11.3 million) in its UK operations demonstrating its commitment to delivering a safe, sustainable and efficient service offering.
The investment adds to ASCO’s current low carbon transport fleet fuelled with HVO and improve efficiencies across ASCO's UK service lines.
Steve Mitchell, group operations & HSSEQ director, said: “Having almost halved our CO2 scope 1 emissions through the implementation of HVO in the UK last year, we are adding an increased volume of HVO-compatible trucks, cranes and forklift vehicles to our fleet.
“This investment strengthens our commitment to sustainably reducing the carbon footprint associated with our operations, directly impacting our client's scope 3 emissions and cementing our dedication to becoming a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions business before the end of 2040."
NORM Solutions, ASCO’s integrated team dedicated to the safe handling and disposal of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM), also benefits from the investment.
Chris Lloyd, head of environmental and decommissioning, said: “The improvements to our UK fleet and NORM facilities reflect our focus on addressing our clients' evolving needs and challenges.
“The scale of this investment demonstrates our determination to being a key player in supply chain efficiencies in the UK while actively reducing our environmental impact."
