Pizza Hut, the world’s largest pizza chain, has restarted home deliveries in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Tampere (Finland) with five biogas-fueled SEAT vehicles. The company’s desire to cut its carbon footprint and the strongly growing network of natural gas filling stations contributed to the decision. The new NGVs have already received positive feedback both from drivers and customers alike. Driving comfort and environmental awareness have reaped plaudits.
“When we were planning to restart our own home deliveries, it was important for us in particular to use natural gas vehicles and low-emission biogas as the fuel. A few years ago, however, the network of filling stations was not yet wide enough and so we thought about the matter for a bit longer. During the spring of this year, we noticed that the location of existing stations is ideal for us and so we got the ball rolling at speed,” said Johan Sirén, Brand Manager, Pizza Hut Finland.
“Focusing on clean fuels is one way we can stand out from our competitors while also responding to the wishes of society and consumers. It is clear that many people would like to see companies take concrete responsibility for the environment. This was exactly our goal with acquiring the natural gas-fueled vehicles,” added Sirén.
“The environmental impacts of different fuels are increasingly being taken into account in corporate motoring. It’s encouraging that when making new investments, companies are prepared to invest in natural gas because only by trying out new things can we find increasingly better alternatives. Renewable biogas can minimize emissions cost efficiently while responding to the growing wishes of customers to offer environmentally-sustainably produced services and products,” said Heidi Kuoppala, Business Manager, Traffic, Gasum.
