Pepsico UK has launched new green logistics initiatives, including the replacement of diesel with Hydrogenated Vegetable Fuel (HVO) in over 3,000 journeys per year.
Pepsico, a multinational conglomerate which owns brands including Pepsi, Doritos, and Quaker Oats, will begin using vegetable oil as a replacement for diesel in routes along its distribution network.
Trucks travelling between the Quaker Oat mill in Cupar, Scotland, and the Walkers headquarters in Leicester will now run using the more sustainable fuel option.
Pepsico claims that ‘every mile powered by HVO will have 80% less Greenhouse Gas emissions when compared with conventional diesel’.
Furthermore, the company is introducing more electric vehicles to distribute 40,000 pallets worth of goods.
Using sustainable fuel and electric vehicles contribute to Pepsico’s plans to reach net zero emissions by 2040.
