Gist converts to renewable energy

Basingstoke, UK: Gist is using renewable electricity to reduce its carbon emissions in 2021.

Zero emission electricity is now used to power its UK temperature-controlled distribution sites from which it expects to reduce carbon emissions by 6,000 tonnes a year.

Michael Chambers, chief executive, Gist said: “Gist is working hard to minimise the impact of our business on the environment through the efficient use of energy and resources.

“By investing in zero emission electricity to power our UK-wide network of chilled warehouses, we are reducing our carbon footprint. This investment sits alongside our ongoing green initiatives including the use of Euro 6 vehicles, driver telematics and ammonia glycol refrigeration, all of which reduce our fuel and energy use.
