Renault Trucks UK & Ireland has committed to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas status by 2030.
The company’s Sustainability Initiative details a nationwide transformation programme of the company’s operations and dealer network. It seeks to understand, manage and improve its operations with a view to steadily reducing all direct and indirect emissions.
Carlos Rodrigues, Renault Trucks UK & Ireland managing director, said, “We recognise the global challenges of climate change and as a business we have a responsibility to act. The commitment of our Warwick headquarters and our dealer network to achieve net-zero by 2030 underlines the importance we place on playing our part in creating a more sustainable future.
“While some of these changes are happening already, with the Covid-19 pandemic hastening the shift to home working and reduced travel, some changes will require longer term transition and investment. We are determined to decarbonise our operations and make a difference.”
Earlier last month, an alliance of Europe’s largest truck manufacturers including Daimler, Scania, Man, Volvo, Daf, Iveco and Ford announced that it is working towards phasing out diesel trucks by 2040.
