CORD fuel – A Greener Alternative to Red Diesel
As a nationwide fuel supplier supplying customers across the UK, we found that many of our customers wanted to offset their red diesel usage using carbon credits. To make this easier for our customers, we put arrangements in place with a leading carbon offset provider to handle this at the time of purchase.
This allowed us to offer a ‘greener’ fuel called carbon offset red diesel (CORD) for our customers who are passionate about limiting the impact of their fuel usage and saving our environment. CORD fuel is carbon neutral, and better yet we deliver it across the UK.
What is carbon offsetting and how does carbon offset red diesel work?
Carbon offsetting is a scheme in which a company or individual offsets its carbon emissions through the funding of activities and projects to improve the environment. When emissions are generated, they are calculated and an environmental initiative is balanced and reimbursed elsewhere. Activities could include tree planting and factory renovations.
CORD fuel does not require any modifications to your engines or special arrangements to use the fuel. In fact, there is no difference to the red diesel fuel itself. It’s the very same diesel with red dye added that you currently use.
Instead, the little extra you pay goes towards funding carbon-reducing initiatives across the world, effectively counteracting the carbon you release by using the fuel.
How will carbon offset red diesel benefit your business:
- A sustainable way to satisfy your red diesel needs
- Can be used to contribute to your company’s carbon reduction commitment e.g. you can include CORD fuel in your Corporate Social Responsibility Report (an example is our own Corporate Social Responsibility)
- Complements any other initiatives that you already take to achieve a better environment
- Positive PR showing your company’s environmental efforts
- Can help improve your relations with those who share your concerns, local communities and target media
- Many offset projects improve the quality of life of a developing area e.g. replacing wood-burning stoves with solar ovens in Africa – no need to collect firewood, no greenhouse pollution
- A cleaner and safer world for you and future generations
