Discover HGVzero23 programme

Join forces with global shippers and hauliers to drive decarbonisation of HGVs in 2023

Join ambitious organisations like Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, Tesco, XPO Logistics, Eddie Stobart, and others, to unpack key challenges of HGV decarbonisation and build high-impact, innovative solutions to drive net zero.

The launch of HGVzero action group in 2022 saw some of Europe’s largest shippers and hauliers collaborating and accelerating the decarbonisation of their collective fleets across the continent. Due to its success and demand, we have continued this programme and kickstarted #HGVzero23 in March 2023.

Ian Anderton, Projects & Supply Chain Senior Manager, Coca-Cola Europacific Partners comments: “As a founding member of HGVzero, we are excited to welcome new organisations to the group that will enable us to further accelerate our collective ambition to decarbonise fleet logistics.  We look forward to exploring some of the detailed challenges facing us as a sector, such as transition fuels and long-term asset projects.”

Dr Nicholas Head, Head of Sustainability, UK and Ireland for XPO Logistics comments: “Being part of this collaborative action group and working with other leading haulage and global shippers to accelerate decarbonisation of HGV transport has already provided immense value to us as an organisation. We are delighted to continue our partnership as a founding member of HGVzero to address critical challenges related to the transition, improve future HGV strategy and take collective action.”

Leo Pickford, Head of Business Change, Yusen Logistics comments: “We are thrilled to join this challenge-focused action group to not only share our experiences and expertise on our net zero transition to date, but similarly learn from others addressing the same challenges as we are, with the aim of finding solutions that enable us, and the industry, to make practical progress in our collective decarbonisation journey.”
