Johnson & Johnson (J&J) as a part of the RE100 initiative has a goal to source 100% of its electricity needs from renewable sources by 2025.
In pursuit of this goal, J&J has signed three new Virtual Power Purchase Agreements (VPPAs) that takes J&J to the equivalent of 100% renewable electricity in Europe for sites where J&J has operational control by 2023. The new VPPAs include a mix of wind and solar projects for approximately 270 GWh of renewable electricity annually.
“Johnson & Johnson has a longstanding commitment to environmental health, including two decades of public climate commitments,” said Carlton Lawson, Company Group Chairman, Consumer Health EMEA, Johnson & Johnson.
“These new agreements cover more than thirty sites in eight European countries. Combined with existing PPAs in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Ireland, we will soon be sourcing the equivalent of 100% of our electricity for Europe from renewable sources — a fantastic achievement that underlines our commitment to ensuring a better, healthier world.”
