Good news: as of January 1, 2019 we compensate the CO2 emissions of our own fleet, so that our delivery platform runs CO2 neutrally. This is an important step in our mission to accelerate the energy transition.
REDUCING CO2 IN 4 STEPS
Shell TapUp was established in 2016 to accelerate the energy transition by enabling a flexible infrastructure for the delivery of alternative fuels. By making alternative fuels available, we can help business users accelerate the reduction of their CO2 emissions.
The 3 major steps we have taken so far:
● Development of the flexible infrastructure and our own vehicle for fuel delivery, with which we take kilometers off the road and thereby reduce CO2 emissions
● Development of our service model whereby we ourselves drive as few kilometers as possible through efficient planning and delivery
● We also run on an alternative fuel, namely Shell GTL.
And today we take the next step: we drive CO2-neutrally ourselves and can also offer this to our customers! In line with our mission to accelerate the energy transition, we are now running our own operation CO2 neutrally. We did this partly in the early days of Shell TapUp, with our electric vehicles, that we would deploy in the city center. But we also want to actively contribute to CO2 reduction for the TapUp cars that are now taking to the highway. By investing in projects to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere, we create CO2 certificates that compensate for our CO2 emissions. We invest in three projects, one in Kenya, one in Indonesia and one in Peru, where we help reduce CO2 in the atmosphere by planting trees and protecting forests.
