Mondelez turns on to renewable electricity

100% renewable electricity

Mondelez has switched to renewable electricity for all six of its production sites across the UK.

The confectionery giant has moved to purchased 100% renewable electricity across six sites including its Bournville factory, the heart and home of Cadbury in the UK. It has also signed a contract to provide all six production sites with sustainable electricity that has been generated solely in Great Britain.

The transition means that Mondelez can offset the equivalent of 2,900 people’s annual CO2 emissions. The UK business now joins other Mondelez production sites in using 100% renewable electricity including Mexico, Australia and New Zealand.

This move builds on previous progress by the company which has already achieved a reduction of 20% C02 emissions across production sites by the end of 2020.

Louise Stigant, UK Managing Director for Mondelez, said: “Using 100% renewable electricity, that is also generated here, across our six production sites is a huge step towards reducing our carbon emissions here in the UK, whilst supporting our global target and our mission to make our snacks in the right way.”
