Colchester-based lifting management firm, Cadman Cranes, has received an award after switching its fleet to renewable diesel fuel.

The firm won the Carbon Neutrality Award at the Anglian Water Supplier Awards for its commitment to reducing carbon emissions.

The award ceremony took place at Rutland Water on June 28 and celebrated suppliers dedicated to creating a safe, efficient, and sustainable water supply and recycling in the Anglian Water region.

Providing an example of sustainability in the crane business, Cadman Cranes was distinguished for transforming its operations and reducing its carbon footprint.

Notably, the company switched its entire fleet of mobile cranes and support vehicles to run on Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuel, contributing to a 90 per cent reduction in its carbon emissions.

Furthermore, solar panels have been installed at their headquarters, which is expected to further reduce CO2 emissions and fulfil more than a third of the company's electricity needs.

Managing director at Cadman Cranes, Matt Waddingham, said: "We are incredibly proud to be recognised for our commitment to sustainability.

"Winning the Carbon Neutrality Award is a testament to our team's dedication to reducing our environmental impact.

"For us, sustainability is not just a goal: it is a core value that drives every aspect of our operations."
