OFFSETTING CARBON EMISSIONS FROM FUEL***

OFFSET YOUR CARBON EMISSIONS FROM FUEL***

 

Find out how our offsetting carbon emissions from fuel offer works for dealerships’ fleets and their customers’ vehicles.

 

Dealers can offset carbon emissions from fuel for their customers’ cars and, if they are not already covered because they are a carbon neutral dealer, their own fleet.***

 

Castrol’s Offset Carbon Emissions from Fuel offer gives dealers the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions from fuel for their own fleet. They can also include carbon offsetting in the sale or service of cars, so customers can buy a car with a set number of miles already carbon offset.

 

For example:

  • The first 10,000km of driving on the sales of new and used cars
  • The mileage between customer service intervals
  • A dealer’s fleet’s carbon emissions – including courtesy cars, employee cars

NOTE: If a Dealership is already a Carbon Neutral** Dealer, their own vehicle fleet carbon emissions from fuel will already be offset, so they will not need to purchase additional Carbon Offsetting Services through this offer.

 

Why offset carbon emissions from fuel?

  • Most of us drive regularly which adds carbon emissions to the atmosphere and contributes to climate change.
  • The main carbon emissions associated with driving internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles are tailpipe emissions.
  • When we can’t replace or reduce the carbon emissions we are producing, carbon offsetting helps us compensate.
** 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.
 
**‘*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. 

 

79% of consumers are changing their purchase preferences based on sustainability. This contrasts sharply with the 36% of organisations who believe consumers are willing to make this change based on social or environmental impact.Cap Gemini Research InstituteHow sustainability is fundamentally changing consumer preferences, 2020.

OUR SIMPLE FIVE-STAGE PROCESS

We’ll provide you with a purpose-built carbon offsetting offer. All you have to do is follow these simple steps:

1 SCOPE

Define which part of your business you’ll include in the campaign, which customer segment you’ll target, and how you want to roll out the campaign.

2 CALCULATE

Insert data into the Castrol Carbon Offsetting Tool to estimate the number of carbon offsets needed for the offer. 

3 COMMUNICATE

Let your customers know that you’re running an offsetting carbon emission from fuel offer. 

4 CONFIRMATION

Register each customer’s vehicle’s carbon offset data in our tool. Give customers a ‘Confirmation of Carbon Offset’ document with every purchase.

5 BUY CARBONOFFSETTING SERVICES

Buy the carbon offsetting services needed via our tools,  thereby helping to finance bp Target Neutral’s portfolio of verified carbon offset projects worldwide.

JOIN OUR PATH360 DEALER PROGRAMME

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.
