REHAU switches to 100% renewable electricity at UK plants

REHAU’s UK chief executive, Martin Hitchin, said: “This is the latest evidence of REHAU’s commitment to an energy efficient, sustainable future – not just in the products we manufacture but in how we manufacture them. As a group, we’ve targeted a 30% reduction in primary energy consumption per tonne of production by 2020 (based on 2009 figures) and here in the UK this is a significant step in our progress towards that.”

REHAU has announced that it has switched to 100% renewable electricity for all of its UK plants.

The move follows the recent publication of its latest report setting out its progress towards demanding sustainability targets.

This includes not only its window system and pipework production facilities in Blaenau and Amlwch, but also its head office in Ross on Wye and distribution warehouse in Runcorn.

Provider SmartestEnergy has issued the company with a certificate acknowledging its commitment to purchasing renewable electricity up until the end of September 2016 and REHAU has already confirmed that it will continue into 2017.

SmartestEnergy provides customers with renewable electricity recognised as having zero carbon emissions under Scope 2 reporting and backed by an Emissions Factor Model certified by the Carbon Trust.
