The corporate fuel payment company UK Fuels is celebrating a successful first year of its carbon offsetting scheme with the Radius Future fuel card.
For a penny per litre, companies can offset all of the carbon their fuel usage produces via investments into renewable environmental and community projects.
These investments are made possible by Radius’ partnership with Forest Carbon, a UK-government-endorsed carbon offsetting company. Investments are made into energy projects including wind, hydro, waste-to-energy, and solar power; chosen for their ability to achieve immediate carbon neutrality.
Radius’s UK Fuels also calculate the amount of carbon businesses have offset, using UK government conversion factors that correlate litres of diesel and petrol to the equivalent emissions in tonnes of CO2.
Radius Future complements the Radius Fleetone REV card – the all-in-one EV charge card – which covers over 4,500 charge points in the UK on a no contract, no set up fee pricing scheme. Uniquely, it can also be used for hybrid vehicles or mixed fleets, as the same card can be used to purchase unleaded and diesel at more than 3,500 UK Fuels network sites, including Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons, and Co-op.
UK Fuels Managing Director Jonathan Haseler commented: “As a company, our whole strategy is now focused on helping our customers navigate to a sustainable future. This includes investing in electric vehicle charging solutions both on and off road, as well as supporting our customers on their energy transition journey. By offering our customers the carbon offsetting Radius Future solution, together we can help accelerate Britain towards the goal of net zero emissions by 2050.”
