How do you describe your solution?

Freight transport in Switzerland will continue to increase, and at the same time emissions from heavy goods traffic must be significantly reduced. Replacing diesel in freight transport requires a variety of alternative drives and fuels.


Thanks to the “Goodbye Diesel” project, it is now possible to fill up with LNG (in future LBG) in Switzerland, and the first PtG plant is also being co-financed as part of the project. Together with its partners, Lidl Switzerland is supporting the use of renewable gas and the development of the necessary framework and infrastructure as an application partner and pioneer. Lidl already drives more than 40% of its kilometres without diesel.

Who are your customers?

Private consumers


What are the environmental benefits of your solution?

The project will create solutions that make it possible today to convert an entire truck fleet to renewable gas without sacrificing payload, range or cost.

By using biogenic fuels, Lidl Switzerland and its partners could soon be on the road without fossil fuels. By co-financing, the PtG plant, Lidl Switzerland is also promoting the possibility of being able to produce renewable gas on a very large scale in order to be able to make all transport renewable and practically C02-neutral in the future. In this way, Lidl Switzerland is making an important contribution to achieving Switzerland’s climate goal. 

How do you manage to exist on the market?

As a profitable and growing company, Lidl Switzerland is firmly anchored in the Swiss market. Under the vision of “simply sustainable shopping for all”, the “Goodbye Diesel” project also contributes to the company’s sustainable management.
