Increasing the use of renewable energy helps Linfox achieve one of its Vision ZERO goals of net zero environmental emissions.
Renewable energy is energy which can be obtained from natural resources and processes that can be constantly replenished. In its various forms, it derives directly or indirectly from the sun, wind, waves or from heat generated deep within the earth. Included in the definition is energy generated from solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, hydropower and ocean resources. It also encompasses biofuels and hydrogen derived from renewable resources.
Linfox uses biodiesel across its transport operations and utlilises commercial scale solar energy at its warehouses.
For example, solar panels installed on our 13,600m2 Kewdale DC and Linehaul facility in Western Australia yielded over 115 mega-watt hours (MWh) and avoided 103 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions between April and December 2015.
