Ever at the forefront of sustainability practices, Glenfiddich is looking beyond just their distillery and is now outfitting their delivery fleet of lorries to run on green biogas – fuel created from distillery waste. This technology was created by parent company William Grant and Sons, and Glenfiddich is the first to use it for vehicular purposes. This action will reduce carbon emissions by about 95% per year – roughly the equivalent of planting 4,000 trees per truck.
William Grant and Sons Distilleries Director, Stuart Watts, said, “It has taken more than a decade for Glenfiddich to become the first distillery to process 100% of its waste residues on its own site, then to be the first to process those residues into biogas fuel to power its trucks. We are proud of these renewable energy breakthroughs in our industry as we scale up the de-carbonising benefits of this closed-loop process across our entire transport fleet.”
