Heineken Commits To Use Of Hydrogen-Powered Trucks

Brewer Heineken has said that the development and rollout of hydrogen-powered trucks 'is part our broader strategy to further green our logistics', as it announced it was signing up to a European-wide pledge to adopt the technology.

To mark #EUHydrogenWeek, the company was one of 62 signatories that pledged to invest in the development, production and deployment of FCH (Fuel Cells and Hydrogen) trucks and related infrastructure.

Sustainable Logistics

'Transport accounts for 11% of our overall carbon footprint and, as a key pillar of our Brewing a Better World strategy, we are committed to investing in innovative and sustainable solutions for our logistics,' Heineken said in a statement.

It said that it supports Europe's sustainable transport ambitions, and is working for a cleaner, greener freight transport system, 'with hydrogen trucks as an important part of that future'.

Other areas the brewer is working on include optimising routes, supporting suppliers to adopt low carbon technologies, shifting to more fuel-efficient transports and investing in other innovative solutions such as electric vehicles for last mile logistics, it said.
