Wren to run on green diesel as kitchen giant turns to used cooking oil for delivery fleet

Wren Kitchens is the latest in a raft of businesses to announce that is working to reduce CO2 emissions.

More than 200 home delivery trucks will be powered by hydrotreated vegetable oil by September, with filling infrastructure being installed across the company’s depot network.

It will bring an immediate 90 per cent reduction in CO2 emission for the North Lincolnshire-based retail and manufacturing giant.

A three month trial at the Barton-upon-Humber HQ saw no performance issues reported.

The renewable, low carbon diesel alternative can be used without modification.

Lee Holes, transport & logistics director for Wren Kitchens said: “We’re committed to minimising our environmental impact whilst delivering customers’ kitchens and improving environmental performance throughout our operations. The introduction of HVO is another exciting milestone in our long-term sustainability plan and it also plays a pivotal part in delivering against the government’s target for net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.”
