Enery and Ursus Breweries signed a multi-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) which provides renewable energy for the production of the local breweries.
Ursus Breweries, part of the Asahi group, will take over the production of energy from a newly built solar power plant with a capacity of over 50 MW, located in Romania. The agreement supports Asahi Europe & International in our wider sustainability ambition to be carbon neutral across all European breweries by 2030.
CEO of Asahi Europe & International Paolo Lanzarotti said that this renewable energy supply agreement for our breweries in Romania marks another important step forward and a significant commitment towards its Legacy 2030 goal of becoming carbon neutral across all breweries by 2030 and throughout its wider supply chain by 2050.
Asahi Europe & International is the international subsidiary of Asahi Group Holdings, a global beverage and food company listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, Japan.
Enery is a green energy producer that currently generates over 200 GWh of electricity operating a capacity of 280 MW. The company’s plans include more than 7 GW worth of projects under development.
