ACS&T goes 'Green'

Share this page:

ACS&T has recently made the decision to only use ‘green energy’ to power their cold stores and warehouses.

In order to power ACS&T Logistics’ 14 cold stores and 2 ambient warehouses, a substantial amount of electricity is required. ACS&T uses an annual average of 18.5 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per annum. In contrast, the UK average household typically uses 4,000 kWh per annum. 

Most of the UK's electricity comes from burning fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas, which is a major contributor to climate change. The term ‘brown energy’ has been coined as energy produced from polluting sources in contrast to ‘green energy’ from renewable, non-polluting sources. This could come from a variety of renewable energy sources such as wind farms and hydroelectric power stations. As part of the Camellia group of companies, ACS&T takes its responsibility to the environment very seriously and commits wherever possible to adopt ways in which to minimise its carbon footprint.

From the 1st January 2019, ACS&T Logistics has moved to a green tariff whereby 100% of the annual electricity requirement is sourced from renewable sources.
