HEINEKEN Mexico inks deal for 100% RE for Meoqui plant
HEINEKEN México will be powering its brewery in Meoqui, Chihuahua with 100% renewable energy through a 10-year agreement with Enel Green Power’s Mexico-based subsidiary.
Under the agreement, the Mexico brewery will be supplied with 28.8 GWh of renewable energy from Enel’s Mexico wind and solar portfolio and expects to avoid more than 16,100 tons of CO2 annually. This agreement also makes the Meoqui brewery the first brewery in Latin America to function as a circular economy system to reduce waste.
“This alliance is historic and something to be proud, as it represents a firm step towards the goal of making this year's operations of the company 66% renewable in terms of energy consumption, with the aim to achieve 100% in 2030,” Marco Antonio Mascarúa Galindo, Vice President of Corporate Affairs of HEINEKEN Mexico, said in a statement.
Recent accomplishments for HEINEKEN México include reducing CO2 emissions by 10% through the use of biogas and renewable energy at its production plants, distribution and a few stores in different states of the country.
