Guernsey leads the way with RD100
Guernsey is at the forefront of a drive to a greener future, as we embark on a new trial with our 100% Renewable Diesel, RD100.
We are now supplying RD100, as STANDARD, across all our forecourts in Guernsey.
Committed to making progress on the islands journey towards carbon neutrality, this trial is a big step by Rubis to understand the appetite of the local market for renewable fuel. If the trial is successful, we will continue to supply RD100 across the forecourt network in Guernsey.
This is a significant moment in energy transition, where a fossil fuel has been entirely replaced with a renewable diesel. And Guernsey is the first jurisdiction in the world to have such access and widespread coverage of renewable fuel.
On average, islanders use around 800 litres of diesel in their cars per year. This means, over one year, one islander who has made the switch to RD100 could save over two tonnes of carbon emissions, which is roughly the same weight as a large family car.
Switching 1 litre of diesel to renewable diesel removes 2.84kg of carbon emissions from the ‘Well to Wheel’ lifecycle.
This initiative will reduce the environmental impact of transport locally, not just in terms of carbon emissions but also in terms of our air quality, and because RD100 is a more sustainable use of resources it also helps reduce environmental impacts beyond our shores too.
RD100 provides an easy and small first step that can make a big difference. A simple switch to RD100 will help drivers across the island reduce the environmental impact of every journey.
