O-I Glass has secured a deal with Engie who will supply renewable energy to its container glass manufacturing sites across Europe.
Engie provide an aggregate 4.3 TWh of renewable electricity generated from solar, wind and hydro sources over 10 years to O-I production sites.
Engie already supplies O-I with natural gas and electricity in several European countries, as well as energy efficiency services for O-I factories in France.
In Mexico and Peru, O-I also sources electricity from Engie while 25% of O-I’s electricity consumption in the US is supplied by Engie with renewable electricity.
Randy Burns, Chief Sustainability Officer at O-I said: “This long-term agreement is an important building block towards our pledge to reduce O-I’s global greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2030.
“As part of our roadmap, we are striving to increase our global renewable electricity consumption to between 30% and 35% this year. At O-I, the journey to sustainability is grounded in resilience, innovation, and the ever-present challenge to transform what we do.”
