THE FEDERATION of Petroleum Suppliers (FPS) officially launched its future vision for clean growth and decarbonisation during its annual exhibition, FPS EXPO 2019 held at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool, when its new name UKIFDA (UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association) was also voted on at the AGM and agreed upon.
‘As the trade association for the liquid fuels distribution industry, we’ve always supported the principle of decarbonisation, clean growth and clear air,’ says Guy Pulham, FPS chief executive. ‘Now we have officially set out in our Clean Growth Future Vision brochure all we aim to achieve in both the near and far future and highlighted the opportunities for the industry as a whole.
‘Our members have always been committed to improving energy efficiency and will continue to contribute to the long-term decarbonisation targets of the government. Liquid fuels are developing all the time and have come a long way in terms of efficiency and reduced carbon emissions. Our members are best positioned to help consumers through the transition phase as new fuels start to come to market.’
