Nouryon signs renewable energy agreement to improve carbon footprint at three sites in US

Nouryon aims to reduce its absolute Scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 40 per cent by 2030 compared to 2019 and aspires to be a net-zero organisation by 2050

Nouryon, a global speciality chemicals leader, announced a long-term agreement with NRG Energy, Inc. brand Direct Energy to support 100 per cent of the electricity needs from renewable sources for the Company’s manufacturing sites in La Porte, Fort Worth, and Houston, through the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs) derived from wind farms throughout Texas, US, helping to reduce carbon emissions. The delivery term will begin at the end of December 2024.

“Announcement represents another important milestone in our journey to reduce Nouryon’s global carbon emission footprint and support our customers’ sustainability targets,” said Eduardo Nardinelli, Senior Vice President, of South America and global Carbon Business Leader. “Our customers increasingly value reduced carbon emissions as part of their sustainability goals.”

The implementation in Texas follows last month’s announcement of 100 per cent electricity from renewable sources for Nouryon’s nine manufacturing sites in Brazil and continues a series of renewable energy agreements around the globe to supply Nouryon sites including Morris, Illinois, US; Guangzhou, China; and Mons, Belgium.

Nouryon aims to reduce its absolute Scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 40 per cent by 2030 compared to 2019 and aspires to be a net-zero organisation by 2050. More information on the Company’s sustainability progress can be found in our 022 Sustainability Report, ESG fact sheet and dedicated Sustainability section of the Company website.
