Reaching our ESG sustainability goals – FinCo has been awarded with the silver medal by EcoVadis

At FinCo Fuel Group, we always challenge ourselves to provide the most sufficient sustainable solutions. After all, we want to service our customers during their CO2 journey to decarbonisation. At the same time, we also look for ways to improve internally. What can we do to contribute to a better, more sustainable world?

FinCo has been awarded with the silver medal by EcoVadis

To enable a sustainable future, individuals and (public) organisations have to consider ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) aspects. These three factors are central in measuring a company’s sustainability. To create an insight in our current status regarding ESG, we’ve decided to execute a business sustainability assessment. This assessment has been carried out by the world’s largest and trusted provider, called EcoVadis.

The EcoVadis sustainability assessment methodology is an evaluation of how well a company has integrated the principles of Sustainability/CSR into their business and management system. It is based on seven founding principles. Their methodology is built on international sustainability standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, The United Nations Global Compact and the ISO 26000.

The Sustainability illustrates performance across 21 indicators in four themes: Environment, Labour & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement.

After the assessment we have been awarded a silver medal. This means we are among the 15% highest scoring companies in our sector. Looking towards the future, we are developing an ambitious programme to reach platinum in 2026. We never stop improving!


Time profit

There are several reasons why methanol is interesting for FinCo and the markets we serve. First off: methanol is a liquid. This means that it fits perfectly into our existing logistics system. Secondly, you can make methanol from almost any residue stream you can think of, so the feedstocks are always available. In addition, methanol’s production process is relatively simple and requires relatively little energy. And because you make it from sustainable feedstocks, the product has a very low carbon footprint, with savings up to 80 to high in the 90s percent. So when we’re talking about methanol, we’re always talking about bio-methanol.


An era of possibilities

In the next few years, we must do everything in our power to reduce CO2 emissions worldwide. We want to be a symbol for the transition that alle energy companies must go through. The course has changed and our sustainable product portfolio is transforming rapidly. We have the people, the resources and the innovate power to make a difference and contribute to a more sustainable world. But we can’t do this alone.


A pioneering role with HVO

Rotterdam, 1 September 2022

To reduce CO2 emissions worldwide we are accelerating the use of sustainable energy carriers and phasing out fossil fuels. One the of the greatest fuels we use to reduce CO2 is HVO, a synthetic diesel, which is produced from the residue streams of the food industry or industrial processes. It is also a very sustainable fuel: it reduces CO2 emissions up to 89 percent and ensures clean combustion, both on land and water.


Bio-markets that don't yet exist

The energy system of the future consists of all kinds of innovative solutions. These innovations differ per market segment and mode; road traffic requires different solutions than shipping and air transport. We therefore look at new sustainable feedstocks, as well as ground breaking conversion technologies to convert these feedstocks into various suitable energy carriers. That is why we are not only looking at liquid fuels, but also at hydrogen and electricity.
