Crown Oil

Doing Our Bit for the Planet

Human activity is impacting on our environment and jeopardising its future. At Crown Oil, we realise that climate change is a serious problem that is affecting every single one of us. That’s why we’re committed to implementing effective carbon-cutting solutions at every level of our operations.

Due to the nature of our business, we recognise that our operations have an effect on the local, regional and global environment. As a consequence, we are continuously seeking new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and our environmental impact.

We have a number of effective carbon effective carbon offset strategies in place to help us achieve this.

Offset Tanker Driver’s Delivery Mileage

We acknowledge that harmful carbon emissions are a necessary by-product of delivering oil to your home or business. In order to drive down our impact on the environment, we’ve been offsetting our carbon emissions since 2008.

For every gallon of fuel that we use to make a delivery, we pay an environmental agency to reduce the equivalent amount of carbon through projects that prevent the release of CO2 into the atmosphere. Effectively, this makes our deliveries carbon-neutral.

Of course, this initiative costs us a little extra – but for the sake of ensuring a greener future for everyone, it’s a price we’re happy to pay. Please note: the cost of the carbon offsetting our mileage is fully funded by Crown Oil; it does not incur any extra cost to the customer.

Carbon Offset Red Diesel (C.O.R.D)

We also work with a leading carbon offset provider to offer carbon offset red diesel (C.O.R.D) to our customers, in turn helping to reduce their carbon environmental footprint. You don’t need to make any changes to your engine, you just pay a little extra to fund carbon-reducing initiatives across the world. This counteracts the carbon you release when using C.O.R.D.

We also implement simple but effective ways to reduce our direct emissions in the office and when we’re out on the road:

  • We use energy-saving light bulbs and energy-efficient equipment
  • Where possible, we use electronic communications to reduce paper consumption e.g. online billing, emails, e-statements and direct debit
  • We encourage the use of public transport when possible
  • We’ve implemented teleconferencing facilities to reduce the need to travel to meetings
  • We rarely use paper, but when unavoidable, we only use recyclable paper
  • Reduction, recovery and recycling strategies have helped us to reduce the amount of waste to eliminate methane production in a landfill
  • Our tankers and company cars are regularly serviced to ensure fuel efficiency
  • We encourage our customers to purchase in bulk with neighbours to save fuel on delivery to reduce CO2 emissions
  • Our employees are trained on environmental issues to ensure a full, cohesive team effort when reducing our carbon footprint
