Coca-Cola switches to HVO for transportation of soft drinks

A total of 50,000 journeys made annually for the transport of Coca-Cola, Fanta, Fuze Tea and Chaudfontaine in the Netherlands will be done using HVO supplied by Neste.
Since the start of the year, Neste has been a renewable fuel provider for Coca-Cola in the Netherlands by using HVO100 for the transport of all their drinks in close collaboration with its logistics partners.
HVO100 is a high-quality fuel produced 100% from renewable raw materials. The majority of the HVO100 is marketed as Neste MY Renewable Diesel™.
Marijke Jacobs-Heefer, associate director of country logistics at Coca Cola Europacific Partners Netherlands, said:  "On many routes, for example, we drive with EcoCombi trucks.
“These are extra-long trucks that can take more products at once, and that saves a lot of trips per year. We have also already switched to 30% biofuel with some trucks.
“With the complete transition to HVO100 for the transport of all our drinks, we are building on previous steps and taking another big step forward. It means investing, of course, but the importance of our climate ambitions goes far.”
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a more sustainable alternative to fossil diesel. By switching to renewable diesel, diesel-powered vehicles around the world can start reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly in an instant.
“We are very proud to work with Coca-Cola in the Netherlands,'' added Peter Zonneveld, vice president sales Europe and APAC, renewable road transportation at Neste. “We are committed to supporting our customers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20 million tons annually by 2030.”
