How do we help the environment?

Lowres Helping The Environment Page Ecohouse

Helping the environment is very important to us, and our team spends a lot of time thinking about new ideas and ways we can reduce the impact our business has on the environment.

We are continuing to take steps to help reduce the impact made by not only our office staff, but also you, our customers.

Here are some of the ways being a member of The Oil-Club can help the environment:

  • Eco-friendly Initiatives

    Grouping orders to reduce carbon emissions and traffic on our roads


    If a village has 20 members ordering oil in a week, with us only one tanker will deliver all 20 deliveries in one go. Ordering seperately would likely mean 20 different tankers driving through your village that week. Now imagine this on an annual scale, country-wide... it all adds up!

    Tankers are extremely large and heavy, so the emissions they give off are much higher than the standard car. A truck will use +50 litres of diesel to travel 75 miles, so the carbon saving can be substantial.


  • Offering additives to help your fuel run more efficiently and reduce carbon emissions

  • Adding additives to your oil can be a good idea, not just to keep your tank and pipes clear of soot and deposit, but they can also help reduce your impact on the environment by making your fuel run more efficiently, meaning you wont use quite as much, and reducing the emissions the fuel gives off in the tank.

    To reduce your emissions and help your fuel run more efficiently, you can upgrade your fuel to premium with an additive at anytime. To purchase additives or to find out more, please visit The Club Store.

  • Our eco-conscious office team are making efforts to reduce their carbon footprint

  • Our eco-conscious mindset also carries on closer to home, literally - as our office staff are now working from home 4 days a week (we are open 7 days a week) to reduce carbon emissions by reducing their travel, saving over 23,500 car miles per annum.

  • We've partnered with Carbon Footprint to offer our members the option to make each order carbon neutral

  • Our members now have the option to donate to the Portel-Pará REDD Amazon Deforestation Project in the Amazon Rainforest to protect trees and wildlife. The project is expected to avoid over 22 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent greenhouse gas emissions over a 40 year period.

    Alternatively, with each order members also have the option to purchase a tree for the UK Tree Planting Project to help offset carbon and help our environment for generations to come. See carbon offsetting for more info.
