The Fuel Store

The Fuel Store

The Fuel Store was founded in 2016 with the aim of not only being a one-stop shop for fuel and fleet needs and expertise, but also to provide all the necessary information and services to help businesses reduce their fuel consumption and, ultimately, climate impact. 

The Fuel Store recognises that cars and light commercial vehicles account for around 25% of all UK carbon emissions and that despite an overall national reduction in those emissions of 38% between 1990 and 2015, vehicles emissions were up 2.1% over the same period. 

The Fuel Store launched its new Clean Air Partnership in March 2019 to enable its customers to support certified UK woodland creation projects that will not only mitigate the CO2 emissions from their business journeys, but that also contribute a host of other benefits to the country. You can see below the impact so far of the scheme, and some examples of nature based projects The Fuel Store has supported. In addition there is information here on the range of international renewable energy projects also supported.
