Nestlé unveils switch to renewable energy for its owned fleet of trucks

May 1, 2022 |

In Switzerland, Nestlé announced their food and drink products will now be delivered in the United Kingdom and Ireland by trucks which emit up to 95% less carbon in those two countries. This significant reduction in emissions comes after the company switched 75% of its owned fleet of trucks from diesel to Bio-LNG, a liquefied gas which is a by product of waste. The move is a significant step towards Nestlé’s commitment to be net zero by 2050.

Nestlé has been exploring solutions to reduce its carbon emissions in its transport and logistics network since 2017. The company chose to switch to Bio-LNG fuel as it is a renewable source of energy suitable for powering trucks around its transport network.

This fuel conversion project has taken several years to get on the road thanks to the complex nature of the delivery network and the journey to this interim milestone has been challenging.
