REDUCE AND OFFSET YOUR CARBON EMISSIONS

Castrol will provide you with a purpose-built carbon neutral programme including  guidance to help you calculate your business’s operational carbon emissions, create and commit to a reduction plan and then offset the residual carbon emissions to go carbon neutral. Find out how to become a Carbon Neutral** Dealership

 

** The operational emissions of the businesses included on Castrol PATH360 Carbon Neutral Dealer programme are carbon neutral in accordance with the bp Target Neutral (BPTN) Carbon Neutral Protocol, which has undergone a limited-level assurance by ClimateCheck. Businesses included on the Castrol PATH360 Carbon Neutral Dealer programme have to quantify their operational carbon emissions, create and commit to a carbon reduction plan and offset their residual emissions. Emissions calculations are based on activity data provided solely by the business. The emissions from the use of vehicles sold are not included in the emissions calculations. See www.castrol.com/360dealer for complete details.
 

UNIQUE INDUSTRY PROGRAMME

Our offer includes tools and support  to help you  tell your carbon management story. By doing so, our research shows that it can add value through differentiation, reputation and customer loyalty.

 

Please note: The carbon neutral** status of your business covers the operational carbon emissions from your Dealership site but does not include the carbon emissions from the use of the vehicles that you sell.

 

CARBON EMISSIONS CALCULATOR

We know that trying to reduce carbon emissions can seem like a daunting task. This is why we have developed an online carbon management portal. It helps you to measure your carbon emissions, then build a carbon reduction plan that’s unique to your business. Once your application has been submitted, a bp Target Neutral reviewer will undertake a review of the application and make sure it has been filled out to the required standard.  If the application meets all the criteria to comply with the bp Target Neutral carbon neutral protocol it will be approved.

 

Castrol will then help you to purchase carbon offsetting services via our tools to offset your residual carbon emissions, investing in verified emissions reduction and avoidance projects. Then you’ll be eligible to call yourself a Carbon Neutral** Dealer. 

 

In your first year’s application carbon neutrality can be achieved by quantifying your operational carbon emissions, creating a reduction plan, and then offsetting residual emissions. However, in all subsequent years, the carbon reduction plan will need to be implemented and you must deliver on carbon reduction targets and offset residual emissions in order to maintain carbon neutral status. 

 

MARKETING ASSETS

We offer a range of marketing materials to help you communicate your carbon reduction and offsetting programme to your customers.

LEGAL DISCLOSURE 

 

Castrol®, a bp brand, blends and markets Castrol lubricant products made from hydrocarbons. The global scientific community has reached consensus that emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other gases from the use of hydrocarbons, including the combustion of fossil fuels, is a contributor to global warming causing what is commonly referred to as climate change. Castrol acknowledges this scientific consensus but also recognizes the role that lubricants play in supporting efficient motion to meet everyday energy needs.

 

Castrol is offering carbon neutral products offset in accordance with PAS2060, which includes the full lifecycle carbon emissions of the products, including production, distribution, use and end of life. When you use a carbon neutral lubricant in your vehicle or machine, CO2 will be emitted into the atmosphere –, either through losses in use and if combusted at end of life.

 

A carbon offset is an action or activity (such as installation of renewable power or switching to more energy-efficient cooking methods) at one location that compensates for the emission of CO2 or other greenhouse gases to the atmosphere at another location Put another way, carbon offsetting is a way to compensate for emissions by making an equivalent CO2 saving elsewhere. Castrol procures sufficient quantities of carbon credits from a range of carbon offset projects that not only reduce or avoid carbon emissions, but some also provide livelihoodbenefits that support the UN Sustainable Development Goals Castrol retires carbon credits in an international registry which means they can only be counted once.

 

Please note that a carbon offsetting program will not change or reduce the CO2 emissions from any use of Castrol products nor is it certain that carbon offsetting has a quantifiable effect on the planet.

***‘Carbon’ is used throughout as shorthand to refer to CO2e  (carbon dioxide equivalent). CO2e means the number of metric tons of CO2 emissions with the same global warming potential as one metric ton of another greenhouse gas. The CO2e emissions from the use of vehicle fuels are calculated on a ‘well to wheel’ basis, covering the estimated lifecycle emissions of the product, including the production, refining, distribution and combustion of the fuels purchased by the Customer. The approach used is based on the 2021 UK Government GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting. Available online at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/greenhouse-gas-reporting-conversion-factors-2021. This methodology is aligned with the WRI/WBCSD GHG Protocol.
