Saputo Dairy commits to renewable power agreement

Saputo Dairy Australia (SDA) has commenced a 10-year long-term, large-scale renewable power purchase agreement (PPA) with ENGIE.

Within two years, the program will ramp up to offset 46% of SDA’s electricity with renewables through ENGIE’s Australian renewable energy generation portfolio.

SDA’s long-term commitment to renewable electricity is a big step towards Saputo achieving last year’s promise to reduce its global greenhouse gas intensity by 20% by 2025.

This renewable initiative will be on track to reduce SDA’s carbon dioxide emissions by more than 61,000 tonnes in 2023 — equal to taking more than 13,000 cars off the road and reducing Saputo’s global carbon footprint by 5.7% compared to last financial year.

“We’re delighted to be delivering a long-term renewable solution that will help Saputo Dairy Australia achieve their sustainability goals,” said Andrew Hyland, ENGIE’s Executive General Manager of Energy Management.
