Procter & Gamble (P&G) has said it is working with renewable energy company ENGIE North America on its latest and largest solar energy Power Purchase Agreement.
P&G’s said the 200 MW partnership helps progress its aim to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions across its operations and supply chain by 2040.

Nate Nelson, Purchasing Director, Global Energy Purchases, P&G, said: “The transition to renewable energy is part of P&G’s comprehensive plan to accelerate action toward net-zero GHG emissions by 2040.
“Investing in and partnering to build new renewable power projects that bring long-term, zero emissions renewable energy online is vital to help us advance our goal of purchasing 100% renewable electricity.”
