Nutreco announces decision to switch to green electricity

Nutreco today announces that all its facilities will purchase electricity from now on from renewable sources. The move is expected to reduce Nutreco’s scope 1 and 2 emissions by around 22%, or approximately 90,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. 

Nutreco’s operations are already using 100% green electricity in eight countries – Ecuador, Spain, Chile, Portugal, Turkey, Brazil, Germany and Guatemala. The target is to switch to renewable electricity by the end of 2024 in all Nutreco’s markets where green electricity sources are available. The company’s next priority to meet this, is to move to green electricity in Norway, the U.S., Vietnam, China and Canada.

This decision is a clear reflection of Nutreco’s commitment to reducing our emissions as we pursue our purpose of Feeding the Future. Our priority will always be to consume less energy, and our teams across the globe are working very hard towards this goal. This move towards renewable electricity accelerates our transformation and positive impact
