Nouryon signs renewable energy agreement to improve its carbon footprint at three sites in Texas, US

13 Dec 2023 - News

Nouryon announced a long-term agreement with NRG Energy, Inc. brand Direct Energy to support 100% of the electricity needs from renewable sources for the Company’s manufacturing sites in La Porte, Fort Worth, and Houston, through the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs) derived from wind farms throughout Texas, US, helping to reduce carbon emissions. The delivery term will begin the end of December 2024.

“Today’s announcement represents another important milestone in our journey to reduce Nouryon’s global carbon emission footprint and support our customers’ sustainability targets,” said Eduardo Nardinelli, Senior Vice President, South America & Global Carbon Business Leader. “Our customers increasingly value reduced carbon emissions as part of their sustainability goals.” 

The implementation in Texas follows last month’s announcement of 100% electricity from renewable sources for Nouryon’s nine manufacturing sites in Brazil and continues a series of renewable energy agreements around the globe to supply Nouryon sites including Morris, Illinois, US; Guangzhou, China; and Mons, Belgium. 

Nouryon aims to reduce its absolute Scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 40% by 2030 compared to 2019 and aspires to be a net-zero organization by 2050.
