Solar boost for Tetra Pak’s sustainability drive
Setting the scene
World-leading food packaging and processing solutions company Tetra Pak is on a sustainability mission. As an RE100 company, Tetra Pak has made the commitment to source 100 per cent of its energy from renewables by 2030.
By the beginning of 2019, 33 of Tetra Pak’s 56 production sites around the world were entirely run on green energy, and it enlisted the help of BayWa r.e. to continue its success story in Thailand.
Getting the Result
With more than 3,000 solar panels installed across the four factory rooftops, Tetra Pak now has a capacity just short of 1MW, generating its own green energy for its Thai business.
Not only have we helped Tetra Pak make strides towards its own energy targets, but together we have also helped Thailand move a little further along its own green energy transition and commitment – to increase the proportion of energy it sources from renewables from 14 per cent to 30 per cent by 2036.
BayWa r.e. is now continuing its successful partnership with Tetra Pak and further projects are now actively being explored together.
Working together with our partners, […], Tetra Pak is committed to supporting the transition to a low carbon, circular economy in all the countries in which we operate. Thanks to BayWa r.e.’s services and expertise, we now generate an additional 1 MW of renewable electricity for our Thai operations.
