Ecolab Expands Renewable Energy Sourcing

April 4, 2022 Ecolab Expands Renewable Energy Sourcing

Ecolab Inc. has signed a virtual power purchase agreement to support the construction and operation of a five-turbine wind farm on the west coast of Finland.

The wind farm, developed by renewable energy investment firm Low Carbon, will produce approximately 100GWh of renewable energy each year. Once fully operational in 2023, the facility will reduce potential greenhouse gases by an estimated 20,900 tons and cover 100% of the electricity Ecolab uses to power its European sites including 15 major offices, 26 manufacturing facilities, and seven research and development centers.

“At a time of increased scrutiny for energy use and net-zero commitments, we are proud to be investing in renewable options that are good for both Ecolab’s business and our planet,” said Emilio Tenuta, Ecolab chief sustainability officer. “Many of Ecolab’s more than 47,000 associates globally are supporting our customers on their net-zero transition, and this agreement provides a tangible example of how to move from commitment to action.”
