U.S. Gain Announces Agreement with Unilever for Sustainability Efforts
U.S. Gain has partnered with Unilever to build a GAIN Clean Fueling CNG fueling station in Edwardsville, Illinois, just east of the St. Louis, Missouri metro area. The station will be the largest GAIN Clean Fuel station U.S. Gain has built to date. The agreement calls for Unilever to purchase 800,000 gallons of GAIN Clean Fuel CNG per year.
The Edwardsville station contributes to Unilever’s commitment to reduce its impact on the environment and improve its sustainability efforts. “We’ve made significant investments to reduce our costs while lowering our environmental footprint by reducing carbon dioxide emissions, water use, and waste.” said Camille Z. Chammas, VP Procurement at Unilever. “The use of GAIN Clean Fuel is important part of this program.”
Unilever’s decision to incorporate CNG into its logistics network was led by recommendations from Breakthrough Fuel, a supply chain management and transportation advisory firm.
With the addition of the St. Louis area location, U.S. Gain continues to work towards its goal of having more than 100 GAIN Clean Fuel stations in operation through North America within the next two years. The Edwardsville location will open in June 2015 and will be available for use by other companies and the general public.
