Fuelling Responsibly for Future Generations

The evidence is clear. Climate change is a serious issue that’s affecting each and every one of us. Oil is a global commodity and currently remains the world’s primary source of energy production.

As a UK leading fuel supplier, the Crown Group acknowledges that our operations influence the local, regional and global environment. That’s why we’ve put sustainability at the core of our business and are going above and beyond to find ways in which we can reduce that impact.

We’re passionate about fuelling responsibly and are committed to implementing effective carbon-cutting solutions at every level of our operations to help the UK achieve its Net Zero target.

The Crown Group is certified carbon neutral in accordance with PAS 2060:2014

In April 2022, we became the first UK fuel company to be certified carbon neutral. To ensure transparency, we partnered with an external third party to validate our carbon neutral achievement and commitments.

In 2021, the oil companies within the Crown Group became the first UK fuel suppliers to run our entire delivery fleet on HVO

Did you know…

An average fuel delivery that runs on regular diesel will produce 34kg of CO2e.

Partnering with Crown Oil for your fuel delivery will produce on average 2.7kg of CO2e, saving around 31.3kg of net CO2e!

* Emissions factors obtained from DEFRA and include Scope 3 WTT figures

* Average mileage taken from Crown Oil averages 2020/21
