The Situation

Suez is a French-based utility company operating predominantly in water treatment and waste management that prides itself on its ambitious sustainability agenda.

Suez contacted LOTS wanting to understand how to reduce its environmental footprint in transport from a hardware perspective, and when to do so. The goal was to reach a 30% reduction Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions without increasing costs.

The Approach

The project team started by identifying a suitable pilot transport system in northeastern France, mapping the operational requirements, current and historical total cost of ownership (TCO), and emissions situation to act as a baseline for the analysis

We then developed a replacement plan for the baseline fleet, with emphasis on replacing each truck in the fleet with an alternative fuel driven alternative at the optimal point in time from a cost perspective.

The Impact

30% CO2 reduction by 2025

9% reduction of yearly TCO by 2025

87% reduction in harmful NOx emissions by 2025
