Suttons aligns its commitment to sustainability

Suttons has recently seen an evolution of its strapline to align to its environmental, social, and corporate governance strategy.
The strapline is Delivering life’s essentials safely and sustainably.

The global bulk logistics provider is committed to driving positive change by promoting sustainable practices and minimising its environmental impact in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Suttons Tankers’ ESG policy is based on the ROAR strategy—Reduce, Optimise, Alternate, Replace—a strategy designed to transform and reduce its carbon footprint.

From telematics optimising its truck routes to the exploration of alternative fuels like Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil and investing in new engine technologies, Suttons Tankers are determined to lead the change towards a greener future.

The International division are delighted to have received a Silver sustainability rating from ESG experts EcoVadis which reinforces its commitment to being a truly sustainable transport provider to its customers.

Suttons are leading the way with alternative fuels in the bulk haulage industry and its recent HVO trial delivered an 80% reduction in carbon emissions. They are also using 100% renewable electricity at all its owned sites, significantly reducing its Scope 2 emissions.

Its UK Tanker division have been reducing emissions year on year through a combination of fleet investment and improvement in driving style. Its fleet has reduced CO2 emissions by 13,900 Mt which is equivalent to removing over 3000 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles from the road for a year.

John Sutton, CEO of Suttons, commented: “The evolution of our strapline marks an exciting time for our business and we are already seeing excellent results through our commitment to sustainability. The logistics industry have a huge responsibility to pave the way for a greener future and I am proud that Suttons are at the forefront of this movement.”
