As part of the Government’s long-term plans to reduce the UK’s carbon footprint and to encourage the industry towards using alternative power sources, from Friday 1st April, companies operating construction machinery and equipment, will no longer be allowed to use rebated red diesel or rebated biofuels.
To help our members and the wider demolition sector understand the changes that are being made, and how to prepare for them, NFDC have published new guidance on forthcoming changes to the use of red diesel and rebated fuels from 1st April 2022.
We urge members to read them and make sure that you, your colleagues, and your clients and customers, are aware of what these changes mean and how they will affect your business and day to day operations.
A further document has been released, which summarises the main points and actions to consider. Both are available to download below or via the NFDC website.
