Saint-Gobain Enters Into PPA

 Saint-Gobain in Poland and Tion Renewables AG (currently being renamed from Pacifico Renewables Yield AG)  signed a long-term PPA. 

Under the PPA, 100% of the green electricity produced by Tion’s Polish wind parks will be sold on the market and virtually settled at a fixed price with Saint-Gobain. 

The expected annual electricity production from the 20 wind turbines with an installed capacity of approximately 52 MW amounts to approximately 190 GWh, making it one of the largest PPAs of this kind ever signed in Poland. The produced electricity equates to the annual power consumption of around 100,000 average Polish households.

This 15-year contract starting in 2025 will cover nearly 45% of Saint-Gobain’s electricity needs in Poland. It will reduce CO2 emissions by 135,000 tons per year, thereby reducing nearly 20% of Saint-Gobain’s scope 1 and 2 emissions in Poland and 4% of Saint-Gobain’s scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions in Europe.  This is an important milestone on Saint-Gobain’s journey to carbon neutrality in 2050.

Saint-Gobain’s commitments to reduce its CO2 emissions by 2050 was recently approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

 “The signing of this agreement, important for the Saint-Gobain Group in Poland, is proof of the consistent implementation of our purpose ‘Making the world a better home’ and the Grow & Impact strategic plan, to ​​ care about people and the planet,” said Joanna Czynsz-Piechowiak, CEO of Saint-Gobain Poland & Ukraine in a statement. “As market leaders in sustainable construction, we want to show the direction of the necessary changes in energy sources. Through these and other activities, we will systematically reduce the impact of our industrial activities and manufactured products on the natural environment.”
