Marco Faes, Director Corporate Affairs Europe, Heineken: “As part of our ambition to Brew a Better World, we are accelerating the transition to decarbonise our breweries. Together with our colleagues in Global Procurement, we have made great progress in adopting renewable energy. The wind farm in Mutkalampi, Finland moves us one step closer to reach 100% renewable electricity in Europe within a year – in line with our global ambition to be net zero in scopes 1 & 2 by 2030. This includes all our breweries and logistics sites. We’re happy to be partnering on this VPPA and we remain focused on our net zero journey ahead.”
Johan Hospers, Director Energy at Nobian: “This opportunity where we secure a share of the output of the Mutkalampi windfarm is important to become more sustainable. It contributes to us realizing our renewable energy targets as expressed in Nobian's ‘Grow Greener Together’ strategy. A long term commitment from Nobian, and our consortium partners, to realize additional wind projects such as Neoen’s Mutkalampi windpark, is a great example of how we can become greener and how industry can contribute to a sustainable energy system.”
Robert Metzke, Global Head of Sustainability at Philips: “Climate change challenges societies and healthcare systems worldwide. This renewable electricity partnership raises the bar in how we can jointly increase green energy supply across Europe. With the opening of the Mutkalampi wind farm, we are securing renewable electricity supply that will help power our global operations for the next 10 years, as well as enabling our customers’ transition to sustainable healthcare. This is an important step as we work towards achieving our 2025 climate targets.”
The new wind farm has been developed, is owned, and operated by Neoen, a leading independent producer of renewable energy.
