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.
