Suttons has created a new strapline to better reflect its environmental, social, and corporate governance strategy.

The strapline is ‘Delivering life’s essentials safely and sustainably’. 

The global bulk logistics provider said it is committed to driving positive change by promoting sustainable practices and minimising its environmental impact in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Suttons Tankers’ ESG policy is based on the ROAR strategy—Reduce, Optimise, Alternate, Replace—which is designed to transform and reduce its carbon footprint.

The company said Suttons Tankers is ”determined to lead the change towards a greener future”, pointing to a broad range of sustainable policies, from telematics optimising its truck routes to the exploration of alternative fuels such as HVO and investing in new engine technologies. 

The International division has also achieved a Silver sustainability rating from ESG experts EcoVadis and Suttons also recently conducted an HVO trial which delivered an 80% reduction in carbon emissions. It is also using 100% renewable electricity at all its owned sites, significantly reducing its Scope 2 emissions. 

Its UK tanker division has been reducing emissions year on year through a combination of fleet investment and improvement in driving style. Its fleet has reduced CO2 emissions by 13,900 Mt which is equivalent to removing over 3,000 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles from the road for a year. 

John Sutton, Suttons chief executive, commented: “The evolution of our strapline marks an exciting time for our business and we are already seeing excellent results through our commitment to sustainability. The logistics industry has a huge responsibility to pave the way for a greener future and I am proud that Suttons are at the forefront of this movement.”
