Going Green

Our intention is to work greener

We are committed to becoming more sustainable as a business and to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals. Since January 2020, we have partnered with Tree-Nation to reduce our carbon footprint by planting trees and funding climate change projects, offsetting all the carbon emissions associated with our own internal operations as a business.  

As part of our continued review of our sustainability, we are dedicated to making further improvements and the necessary changes to be greener as a company and to help our customers become more environmentally responsible.

From the 6th of July 2022, Online Lubricants will be offsetting the Carbon associated with every single product supplied as standard.

For every 1 Litre of oil and fuel sold, Online Lubricants will offset 5kg of CO2

Whilst Lubricants are not combusted in their initial use, they eventually work their way into the environment through leakages or they are recycled as fuel for power stations, and their emissions are comparable to those of both diesel and kerosene. The result is that offsetting 5kg of carbon for each litre of product sold, more than covers any carbon emissions released from both the use of the products and our wider operations.

Carbon Neutral Website

Why it’s important to offset website emissions..

Every year, a website releases several kilograms of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. When a website is used, data is transferred and processed in remote servers.

The electricity consumed by these servers and by our computers accounts for 2% of the world’s air pollution, which is as much as the airline industry.

In the footer of our site you will find our Net Zero website badge.
