With an aspiration to achieve net zero, the foodservice wholesaler has already laid out plans for the future with solar panels scheduled for both Devon and Oxford sites by
August 2024, a continuation of work with sustainable manufacturers, as well as carbon offsetting through partnerships with its fuel provider to invest in nature-based projects to offset fuel emissions.

“We are facing a stark reality, we either do something about eradicating carbon emmisions or we risk causing irreparable damage to the planet. Savona has been taking positive steps since 2018 when we made the decision to remove single use plastics from our range,” said director Kelly Williams.

“We have come a long way since then with latest data detailing how we have reduced emissions by 26% over the last 12 months alone. With the introduction of ground breaking 100% electric vans to our fleet and working with fuel partners on projects to offset emissions we are on track to achieve our target of net zero,” she added.
