BIOGAS FLEET SNARES UK AWARD
UK COMPANY the John Lewis Partnership (JLP) has won the Low Carbon Award at this year’s Motor Transport Awards, with an entry based on its Waitrose-branded, biogas-powered, Scania truck fleet.
JLP has achieved an 83 per cent ‘well to wheel’ reduction in carbon dioxide emissions per vehicle since introducing the vehicles into service.
Reportedly it was this, coupled with JLP’s ambition to develop a more sustainable transport solution, that led to the company’s success at the awards.
In their citation, the independent Motor Transport Awards judging panel praised JLP’s collaboration with universities to identify the best fuel for the fleet and with the National Grid to ensure biomethane supply would be maintained.
