Diageo has partnered with haulage firm Malcolm Logistics in a new trial using biofuel-powered lorries.
This initiative involves operating 11 vehicles, powered by a fuel made up of HVO into and out of Leven, which is Diageo’s largest packaging site globally.
The trial will assess the performance and reliability of the biofuel lorries and will run until the end of October.
HVO fuels have the potential to significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions compared to traditional fossil fuels like diesel.
The biofuel-powered lorry trial is just one of the many sustainability initiatives undertaken by Diageo Leven.
Gavin Brogan, logistics director for global brands supply chain at Diageo, said: “The biofuel trial with Malcolm’s is an exciting next step in our journey towards net zero, and if successful, could be a game-changer for reducing CO2 emissions from our supply chain. Our Leven packaging site is making great strides in its sustainability initiatives, including the new solar panel array.”
Andrew Malcolm, chief executive of the Malcolm Group, added: “Our ESG strategy is a priority board objective for us – making real strides along our sustainability roadmap and reducing our carbon footprint is a key pillar of this strategy. We are delighted to be partnering with Diageo on this HVO trial as one of a number of initiatives we are working on to minimize climate harm and protect the planet.”
