AkzoNobel Achieves 100% Renewable Electricity in Latin America

Source: AkzoNobel

AkzoNobel has announced that all of its manufacturing locations in Latin America are now operating on 100% renewable electricity, further boosting the company’s ambition to reduce carbon emissions across the full value chain by 50% by 2030 (baseline 2018).

The milestone, reached late last year, follows on from similar achievements in North America (early 2023) and Europe (early 2022).

“We’re very proud to have successfully switched over to 100% renewable electricity and give further momentum to the company’s drive to transition all of its sites globally,” says Daniel Campos, Director of AkzoNobel’s Decorative Paints Latin America business and a member of the Executive Committee. 

The transition to 100% renewable electricity in Latin America has included installing 1,580 panels at the Decorative Paints facility in Recife, Brazil — which supplies more than 30% of its energy needs — and 4,640 panels at the Rionegro paints and coatings plant in Colombia, which provides 24% of the site’s energy. The company currently operates 19 manufacturing sites in the region.
