Portland are the UK’s recognised experts on all things fuel. Set up in 2009 by James Spencer, Portland began as a specialised hedging provider; ten years on, we offer a wide range of services (for more information, refer to our group site), covering every aspect of the downstream fuel sector.
Portland’s Green desk focuses on the decarbonisation agenda. Its activities include offsetting, emission reducers and the development of alternative fuels.
Climate change is an ever-growing issue, with transport and fuel sectors being targeted as the largest polluters. This said, not everyone can operate an all-electric fleet and nor would that necessarily be beneficial to global CO2 emissions. So carbon reduction must be tackled pragmatically.
There is no ‘silver bullet’ when it comes to tackling the two-fold emission problem faced by vehicle fleets;
– Global carbon emissions
– Localised tailpipe emissions
One size does not fit all went it comes to reducing carbon emissions. Portland offer a tailored approach to reducing carbon emissions through a suite of products. Our main goal is for customers to reduce their emissions while still running a profitable business.
