American brewing company Anheuser-Busch has pledged to run 30% of its fleet on renewable natural gas (RNG).
The plan is to transition more than 180 trucks, an upgrade which is estimated to reduce the fleet’s emissions by more than 70% compared to conventional diesel.
That is the equivalent of taking more than 66,000 cars off the road or planting more than eight million new trees.
The trucks, which will be equipped with fuel system technology, are expected to travel more than eight million miles every year.
Ingrid De Ryck, Vice President of Procurement and Sustainability at Anheuser-Busch, commented: “We are incredibly fortunate to work hand-in-hand with our suppliers to identify new solutions, like RNG, to improve the sustainability of our fleet and reduce carbon emissions across our entire value chain.
“Innovation in the transportation sector is a massive opportunity for companies like ours and we continuously strive to lead the industry by transporting every beer in the most sustainable way possible.”
