Musgrave is making the switch to Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuel across its network of almost 500 vehicles.
By 2030, the company says half of its fleet will operate on alternative fuel, with an overall ambition for the entire fleet to be net zero by 2040.
HVO is a completely fossil-free biofuel made from waste, by-products and derived products not intended for human consumption from the food industry.
Musgrave’s fleet of vehicles travel over 35 million kilometres a year and complete over 20,000 deliveries across the island of Ireland each week.
“Sustainability is at the heart of our business and all that we do; reducing the carbon footprint of our transport network is a major part of this,” said Luke Hanlon, Musgrave Chief Supply Chain Officer.
“We are determined to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of our fleet by 50% by 2030 which will pave the way to achieving net zero by 2040,” he added.
