  Decarbonising Executive Travel

Sustainability Plan

Our Path to Sustainability 

Our company policy has always been to offer clean efficient & now sustainable transport to executives’ business & the tourism market.

Traditionally we strived for fuel efficiency using quiet gasoline powered engines. Reducing the amount of fuel required. Following this period, we changed to Diesel powered engines running 20% more efficiently. As each Euro standard came in, we upgraded to be Euro 6 almost eliminating NOX & drastically reducing pollutants into the environment.

Our next step is alternative fuels.

Alternative Fuel 1 BEV

With the current availability of Battery Powered Vehicles, we have start placing orders for Battery electric vehicles with the first replacement arriving this week. We do not believe we will have difficulties with range as we will apply professional executive steps to our logistical needs.

Step 1. We have met with our fuel suppliers to understand their Electric network.

Step 2. We have amalgamated all suppliers’ networks to understand our routes & where supply is lacking.

Step 3. Journey planning to avoid stopping for charging during transfers.

Step 4. We have accessed Electric Irelands Electric map & schedule to see how to access the most sustainable electricity from a mixed grid supply. We hope to only use sustainably produced electricity by doing main charging when hydro-electric power is only available from Ardnacrusha.

Alternative Fuel 2 HVO

Understanding not all journeys are yet suitable for battery electric vehicles we have an alternative option for long range vehicles. A new fuel called Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil is becoming available. This fuel is molecularly similar to Diesel to the point it can be run in conventional diesel engines. It is already a recycled product but used as a fuel has 90% less carbon emissions than Diesel. With our current Euro 6 engines this is accepted by authorities as an alternative fuel such as electric or hydrogen but is available right now. To implement this we have taken the following steps.

Step 1. We have met with our fuel suppliers to understand their HVO network.

Step 2. We have communicated with our vehicle suppliers to understand compatibility.

Step 3. We have recognised the running of new diesel engines without legacy carbon deposits is the most successful method to get our emissions as low as possible.

Step 4. We have planned the purchase of new Euro 6 Diesel engines to run exclusively on HVO fuel while the supplier network is being expanded.

Step 5. We are planning the instillation of a HVO derv tank in our secure base facility to not only fuel all Limousines & Buses but also to be available to company cars & tenders. HVO will also be available to all staff in company cars where possible.
