Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Netherlands logistics partners switch to Neste MY Renewable Diesel for transport of their drinks
Neste Corporation, News, 18.3.2022
From January 2022 onwards, Neste has been a renewable fuel provider for Coca-Cola in the Netherlands, by using HVO100 for the transport of all their drinks in close collaboration with its logistics partners. HVO100 is a high-quality fuel produced 100% from renewable raw materials.
This concerns 50,000 journeys made annually for the transport of Coca-Cola, Fanta, Fuze Tea and Chaudfontaine, among others. The majority of the HVO100 fuel comes from Neste and is marketed as Neste MY Renewable Diesel™.
"On many routes, for example, we drive with EcoCombi trucks. These are extra-long trucks that can take more products at once, and that saves a lot of trips per year. We have also already switched to 30% biofuel with some trucks. With the complete transition to HVO100 for the transport of all our drinks, we are building on previous steps and taking another big step forward. It means investing, of course, but the importance of our climate ambitions goes far”, says Marijke Jacobs-Heefer, Associate Director of Country Logistics at Coca Cola Europacific Partners Netherlands.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a more sustainable alternative to fossil diesel. By switching to renewable diesel, diesel-powered vehicles around the world can start reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly in an instant.
“We are very proud to work with Coca-Cola in the Netherlands'' says Peter Zonneveld, Vice President Sales Europe and APAC, Renewable Road Transportation at Neste. “We are committed to supporting our customers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20 million tons annually by 2030,” Peter Zonneveld continues.
Switching to Neste MY Renewable Diesel enables a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is produced from 100% renewable raw materials. It helps reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 90%* on the average when emissions over the fuel's life cycle are compared with fossil diesel. The renewable diesel is a “drop-in” fuel, fully compatible with all diesel engines, not requiring any modifications to the existing vehicles or fuel distribution infrastructures.
Growing availability of renewable diesel and other renewable products
Neste is the world’s leading producer of renewable diesel. Neste’s Rotterdam refinery together with the company’s Singapore refinery are the world’s biggest and most advanced renewable diesel and renewable products refineries. The total annual production capacity of Neste’s renewable diesel and other renewable products is currently 3.3 million tons, and by the end of the first quarter of 2023 it will increase to 4.5 million tons.
*) The methodology for calculating life cycle emissions and emissions reduction complies with the European Union’s Renewable Energy Directive II (2018/2001/EU)
