PVH Europe to cover Dutch operations with new rooftop solar
PVH Europe announced Oct. 6 that it installed what is believed to be the most powerful rooftop solar installation on a single structure at its Warehouse and Logistics Center in the Netherlands that will power its warehouses, offices and stores in the country.
The global parent company of fashion brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein installed more than 48,000 solar panels on the rooftop of its center in Venlo, the Netherlands, covering the entire electricity footprint of the center and indirectly providing 100% of all energy for the company’s Dutch locations through the Dutch public power network. Eneco certified that all energy needed to power these buildings is generated by the new 18 MWp (megawatt peak) installation.
PVH is in the process of pursuing 100% of its electricity for offices, warehouses and stores and reducing supply chain emissions before 2030.
“This is an incredible milestone for our Warehouse and Logistics Center in Venlo and for PVH Europe’s sustainability journey,” Martijn Hagman, CEO,Tommy Hilfiger Global and PVH Europe, said in a statement. “We have participated in the installation of what we believe is now the world’s most powerful, fully operational solar roof – a huge stride in our commitment to be powered by 100% renewable electricity by 2030 and reduce supply chain emissions by 30% by 2030. This would not have been possible without a best-in-class team of such talented, passionate, and devoted PVH associates.”
