Renewable fuels have long been a part of the Global Partners portfolio, but this past year, the company has been increasing its efforts to make renewables an even bigger focus.
Over the past year, Global has focused on strategic planning in an effort to grow its capacity to move the liquid fuels of the future. The company has made meaningful investments, upgrading its terminals so that now five terminals can receive, store and distribute biodiesel blends.
These terminals join with another seven Global terminals that are equipped to move other renewable fuels, including renewable diesel, ethanol and other bio-blends.
Global is also convening nine departments within the company to explore hydrogen, and it is looking at ways to offer carbon credits to customers.
This past year, Global Partners was also part of Project Carbon Freedom, which seeks to advance clean energy legislation that supports the deployment of renewable liquid heating fuel to help decarbonize the residential heating sector in the northeastern U.S. Through the project, Global was a part of efforts that successfully introduced new mandates requiring bioheat across the Northeast.
Building off the renewable momentum of 2021, Global will turn its work in 2022 toward advocating for low-carbon fuel standard programs.
