About Speedy Fuels
National fuels and lubricants distributor with over 60 years of experience in the industry
Here at Speedy Fuels, we are acutely aware of the impact of burning fossil fuels and the crisis facing humanity and our planet. With an increasing focus on sustainability across every level of society, the need for businesses to be part of the solution has become integral to their future success.
Rather than viewing the fight against climate change as a challenge, we see it as an opportunity to make positive changes to environmental issues, while bringing as many of our customers along on this journey with us.
Tackling the climate emergency
From the way we operate our business to the sustainable fuel solutions we provide for our customers and partners, we continually seek ways to make a positive environmental, societal and economic difference for businesses and communities.
In 2021, we partnered with an external agency to commission a business carbon assessment which is aligned to international standards (PAS 2060 and GHG Protocol). This enabled us to view our current carbon footprint and seek ways in which carbon reduction achievements can be measured, monitored and reported.
Our journey so far
Although we cannot currently reduce the emissions of all the products that we supply, we’re on a mission to achieve net zero direct emissions (scope 1 and 2) by 2030 while assisting the UK with the import and distribution of low emission, cleaner burning fuel alternatives.
A major milestone on this journey was being certified carbon neutral in 2022 in line with the international recognised PAS 2060 standards.

We will continue to reduce our emissions further and run our delivery fleet on Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO fuel), while offsetting any unavoidable emissions to maintain our carbon neutral status.
2. Publicly share methodology and approach
For full disclosure and transparency, we will continually update our website with details on how we’re reducing our environmental impact, working to the highest levels of independently verified certification.
3. Achieve net zero direct emissions by 2030
Our aim is to achieve Net Zero direct emissions (Scope 1 & 2) by 2030 or sooner.
What’s next for Speedy Fuels?
Being a safe and sustainable business is at the heart of our growth strategy and is essential for the future of our company. This means we will continue to seek new ways to benefit the environment and our customers to support their ESG and CSR targets.
We will continue growing our business while looking after the environment, our customers and our local communities.
- 80% Scope 1 and 2 reductions by 25% against 2020 baseline
