Kellogg Set to Achieve Over 50% Renewable Electricity Globally

The company will use a variety of methods to attain this goal and substantially reduce its Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions.

Kellogg's Better Days

Kellogg will achieve over 50% renewable energy to address the electricity needs of its owned manufacturing globally by the end of 2022. To reach this goal, the company signed a long-term wind energy virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) in North America with Enel Green Power for approximately 360 gigawatt hours (GWh) of wind electricity annually.

This VPPA will help Kellogg toward its global Better Days commitments to reduce Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 65% and to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2050. Kellogg’s facilities across Western Europe have already achieved 100% renewable electricity to address its operations through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), while Kellogg Australia operations have achieved 100% renewable electricity through a long-term Power Purchase Agreement.
