Delivery trucks go green at John Lewis

All John Lewis Partnership heavy delivery trucks will be switched to low-carbon biomethane-powered versions by 2028, the company has revealed.

The announcement has come during the government’s Green GB Week and will cut the company’s HGV emissions by over 80%.

Over 500 new delivery trucks powered by 100% renewable biomethane fuel will replace all its current diesel-powered trucks by 2028.

The company already has 61 biomethane trucks in operation or about to be delivered, with fuel produced solely from food waste and waste materials.

Six Waitrose and Partners delivery trucks are currently trialling zero-emission refrigeration units.

HGV emissions currently account for 18% of greenhouse gas emission for road transport in the UK, and around 70% of the John Lewis Partnership’s transport emissions.

General manager of central transport at John Lewis Partnership, said: “Five biomethane trucks produce the same emissions as one diesel lorry and they are also much quieter, helping reduce not only greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution but also noise pollution in our cities.”
