Electrolux: renewable electricity for thirteen factories


Electrolux Vallenoncello-roof-Banner-940x520As part of the global Electrolux Green Spirit program, starting from this month the Major Appliances manufacturing sites in Sweden, Hungary, Poland, Italy and Germany will use only electricity coming from renewable sources (hydro, solar, wind and bio-mass). Overall, this will reduce CO2 emissions by 75,000 tons per year, which accounts for 70% of the total CO2 emissions of the Electrolux factories in Europe. “There are already several good examples of how Electrolux is using renewable energy – explains the company in a official note -. The Electrolux Professional sites in Vallenoncello and the Major Appliances plant in Forlì (both in Italy) are partially powered by solar energy. Since 2015, the Electrolux headquarters in Sweden and in the UK use purely electricity from renewable sources. Additionally, Vallenoncello became the first ISO 50001 Energy Management System certified plant in the Group in 2014 and now the Major Appliances plant in Rayong (Thailand) has been certified too. Several plants are also in the start-up phase to implement ISO 50000”.
