We’re on course to meet our target of powering all our operations with 100% renewable electricity by 2025, a move that will play the biggest role in cutting our Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions by 75% per ton of production.

Over a third (36%) of our operations already run on 100% renewable power, compared with just 22% in 2022 according to our internal data.

New Zealand, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Peru and The Netherlands are already at the 100% mark, while Costa Rica and Uruguay are at 99% and 91% respectively.

But many of our sites are well on the way to meeting that target, with some between 75 and 90% there already. Thanks to power purchase agreements already signed and our plans to build our own solar and wind power capacity, we have now secured 54% of the renewable electricity we will require to meet our 2025 target.

Our Swiss facility at Wangs is on track to meet that target, thanks to the installation of 1,022 solar panels at the site, producing 440,000 KWh of renewable power a year and avoiding 206 tons of carbon emissions. We’ve invested over €1 million in equipping our Spanish plants in Alicante and Okondo with solar panels which will see them become self-sufficient in renewables.

Our 17 sites across Australia and New Zealand will be powered by 100% renewable electricity by 2025, thanks to new power supply contracts with CleanCo and Iberdrola in Australia. That means our Pacific business will be the first regional division to go 100% renewable.

Meanwhile, we’ve joined a pilot renewable certification project run by Hydro-Québec, which guarantees that all four of our plants in the area are powered by renewables, mostly wind energy.

In India, some 67% of our operations are powered by renewable electricity already, up from 39% in 2022. We’ve made great progress since opening a dedicated solar farm in Bikaner, Rajasthan, which started producing power in early 2023. In addition, our new Telangana plant will be powered by solar panels.
