Certas Energy celebrates winning GREENFLEET’s ‘Alternative Fuel Provider of the Year’ Award for 2023


Certas Energy is proud to announce it has been crowned winner of GREENFLEET’s ‘Alternative Fuel Provider of the Year’ for 2023.

The GREENFLEET Awards are a highlight in the fleet and transport industry events calendar and are designed to showcase enterprises and individuals who are helping to decarbonise the sector.

An awards ceremony took place on December 7 at the British Motor Museum in Warwick, where Certas Energy took home the title of ‘Alternative Fuel Provider of the Year’.

Certas Energy was recognised for its work supplying HVO made from renewable raw materials and sustainable waste from verified vegetable fats and oils, helping fleets, such as Royal Mail, to decarbonise their heavy duty vehicles. Judges also commended the fuel distributor for switching its own fleet to HVO, and for being a Renewable Fuel Supplier under Zemo’s Renewable Fuels Assurance Scheme (RFAS), which reassures fleet operators they are purchasing bulk supplies of guaranteed and reportable sustainable fuel.

HVO is a popular choice for businesses looking to immediately cut their carbon footprint. As a drop-in alternative diesel, HVO reduces life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% compared to standard diesel*.

Driving positive change in the fleet industry

Speaking of the win, Niki Holt, Head of Commercial at Certas Energy, said “We’re delighted to be named GREENFLEET’s ‘Alternative Fuel Provider of the Year’ for 2023.

“As the first fuel distributor in the UK to provide HVO to HGV refuelling bunkers, we’re honoured to be recognised by the fleet sector for driving positive change. Winning this prestigious accolade underlines our continuous, long-term investment in innovative new energies, such as HVO, to support UK businesses with their sustainability and net zero targets.


“Certas Energy would like to take this opportunity to thank the judges for recognising our unwavering commitment to environmental excellence, and also our team, whose endless efforts to optimise and evolve our customers’ energy mix made this win possible.

“We look forward to continuing to help forge a lower emissions future for all.”

The GREENFLEET trophy is not the only sustainability-focused award that Certas Energy has won. In May, Certas Energy was named winner of the highly coveted UKIFDA Green Award 2023, for its demonstration of sustainable principles, standards and products and mission to drive decarbonisation across the business.

Fuelling the future of fleets

Certas Energy is a trusted energy transition partner for the transport sector. As the UK’s leading independent fuel and lubricants distributor, it is perfectly-positioned to accelerate fleet businesses towards their sustainability targets.

As well as delivering to businesses nationwide, the renewable diesel is available at a growing number of Certas Energy HGV refuelling sites.

For its own fleet, Certas Energy continues to roll-out the running of its HGV and curtain-side trucks on premium HVO. Certas Energy’s initial HVO trial proved so successful that it was featured as a case study in fleet-focused Zemo Partnership’s recent Renewable Fuels Guide to serve as inspiration for transport businesses looking to lower their own carbon footprint.
