Since GoodFuels was founded, the company has created a one-stop shop for industry customers by integrating the entire supply chain for sustainable biofuels. From feedstock to tank, GoodFuels proposition covers elements of sourcing feedstock and ensuring its 100% sustainability, the blending of the final product, the global distribution, quality assurance and marketing programs. GoodFuels is active in two different markets, the marine industry and the road & rail industry. Both industries are in a transition to becoming more sustainable, but with different criteria for fuel quality.
Being on the forefront of the sustainable fuels market, GoodFuels aims to play an active role in pushing technology development and commercialisation.
Our innovation departments accelerates the future supply of sustainable fuels, by working closely with industry and research partners in product development. We are a knowledge centre bridging the gap between transport markets and technology developers, so innovations find an easier and quicker way to the end-market.
Sustainability is paramount for GoodFuels. We’ve therefore set up our own independent sustainability board consisting out of leading NGO’s and academics overseeing and monitoring the Group’s operation companies.
Unity by diversity – powered by the GoodFuels Values
At GoodFuels we strongly believe that a strong team is a diverse team. A team consisting out of attackers, midfielders and defenders. A team that is intelligent- but that is also able to “just do it” and can out-execute the competition. A team that continuously learns by doing. Where mistakes can be made, as long as you learn from it. A team that combines the millennial energy of the young with grey hair balance and experience. A team consisting out of man and women and as much nationalities, languages, religions, sexual orientations and political beliefs as possible. A team that is united by our values. These are the believes we try to live by day by day- and the ideals we continuously search for in our company, business relationships and new recruits:
- We are passionate about achieving a low carbon world
- We are agile, & responsive, we go the extra mile
- We play fair, truly sustainable and straight
- We can only do it together
- We develop long term relations
- We make our work fun & inspiring
