Clean energy

In order to reduce our ecological footprint, we seek to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, working towards a carbon-neutral future. We do this by investing in increased energy efficiency and by switching from fossil to renewable energy sources where possible and feasible.

 

An important strategic goal towards 2023 is to use only green electricity. Currently, 29% of our electricity is derived from renewable sources. In 2019 we started working on two group projects which will substantially increase this percentage.

  • The first project is aimed at covering the roofs of our buildings with solar panels
  • A second project explores the possibility of a long-term contract under which a third-party investor would install a large windmill, providing 100% green electricity for Zeelandia in the Netherlands.

 

The findings from these two projects will be shared with other operating companies to facilitate their transition to 100% green energy.
