Global renewable energy company ACCIONA Energía has executed two separate agreements with Australian retailer, Coles Group, to underpin Coles’ commitment to sourcing 100 per cent renewable electricity by the end of FY25.
The agreements will see Coles purchase large-scale generation certificates (LGC) from ACCIONA Energía’s Mortlake South Wind Farm and Mt Gellibrand Wind Farm.
“We are incredibly proud to be able to support Coles in its transition to renewable electricity,” ACCIONA Energía Australian managing director Brett Wickham said.
“As the world’s largest 100 per cent renewable energy company with no fossil legacy in the world, ACCIONA Energia is uniquely placed to partner with corporates as they shift to renewable energy and towards net zero emissions.”
As part of its ambition to be Australia’s most sustainable supermarket and drive generational sustainability, Coles launched its Together to Zero sustainability ambitions in March 2021. A focus area is Together to Zero Emissions, which is underpinned by new targets to accelerate climate action and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This includes being powered by 100 per cent renewable electricity by the end of FY25, as well as an ambition to deliver net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
ACCIONA Energía supports corporates in reducing their carbon footprint, integrating clean energy solutions and working together to achieve sustainability goals.
