Kellogg’s pledges to reform use of renewable energy

Kellogg’s UK has pledged to ensure 100% of its electricity consumption will be from renewable sources by 2050.

The cereal and snacks giant has joined forces with global industry platform RE100, a collective of influential businesses working to significantly increase the demand for – and delivery of – renewable energy worldwide.

Diane Holdorf, Chief Sustainability Officer at Kellogg’s, said: “Joining RE100 gives Kellogg’s the opportunity to showcase our leadership on climate action.

“We hope to inspire others in our sector to follow our lead and do more to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

“No one company, sector, or government can undertake the changes needed alone. We believe in the power of partnerships to bring action on these important issues.”

At the forefront of change, the company’s UK headquarters in Manchester was the first Kellogg’s location to begin purchasing 100% renewable electricity from the local utility in 2016.

Kellogg’s sites across Europe, Russia and Egypt have increased renewable electricity from 1% to 70% so far in 2017 through procurement activities.

Currently in the UK the renewable energy sources Kellogg’s receives electricity from include wind, hydro, thermal and solar.
