You all know green is kind of our thing – it’s the colour of our logo, and our trade price list even has it in its name, but now we’re taking it even further.

As part of our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment, we’ve got ourselves a brand new green hybrid delivery vehicle!

Good for the environment

We’re always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint, so alongside our existing fleet of clean diesel engines, the hybrid delivery vehicle could help us save up to 23% a year on fuel and lower our CO2 emissions!

Our London family will be the first area to trial the new vehicle over a three-month period, to monitor how much they save on fuel and CO2 emissions. The vehicle is ideal for branches which have multiple drops over a short distance and if the results are good, we’ll look to upgrade more of our inner-city branches to hybrids in future.

Our Director of Transport, Ian Berrill, said: “We have been looking at hybrids since they came onto the market, but this is the first time they have met our requirements in terms of size and price.”

“This is just another chapter in our long journey to improve our environmental credentials and I’m over the moon to see a hybrid on the market that we could be using in the future.”
