ICA invests in biogas and reduces emissions by 10.000 tonnes

ICA Sweden has drastically increased its use of biogas for its fleet. In the last two years, use has gone from zero to over 2.500 tonnes in 2020. In 2021, ICA Sweden intends to increase the use of biogas to approximately 3.200 tonnes, which will reduce CO2 emissions by 10.000 tonnes compared to if its transport were to run on diesel, which corresponds to a reduction of ICA Sweden's total emissions by 10 percent. ICA Gruppen’s goal is for all the Group's companies to have completely fossil-free road transport by 2030, in metropolitan regions by 2025. This objective will be achieved by investing in new technology and by investigating how initiatives to increase national production of renewable fuels can be supported.
