DSM has signed a new energy supply agreement with Eneco, which will mean that from 2018 onwards 100% of the electricity used by the company in the Netherlands will be from renewable sources.
DSM claims that this milestone puts the company on target to achieve its global sustainability goals, as the company committed to sourcing at least 50% of its energy from renewable sources by 2025.
The deal with Eneco will run from 2018 to 2025, and the electricity will be supplied by the Krammer and Bouwdokken wind farms in the Netherlands.
Harry Coorens, vice-president DSM Procurement Sustainability said: “I’m proud that we managed to source all our purchased electricity for our facilities in the Netherlands from renewable sources in record time.
“The intrinsic drive for sustainability from all involved led to yet another step to bring about a clean energy society.”
Hans Peters, chief customer officer Eneco; “I’m delighted to forge a strategic partnership with a sustainable frontrunner such as DSM.
“Through our partnership DSM enables us to expand our investments in new wind farms, thus enabling our ambition to speed up the energy transition.”
