This month, Tate & Lyle’s manufacturing facility in Guarani, Brazil, became the first Company site to be powered entirely by renewable energy. Alongside electricity, site operations are powered using locally sourced biomass.

Also in August, Tate & Lyle’s manufacturing facilities in Ossona and Noto in Italy and Mold, UK, joined its facilities in Guarani and Koog aan de Zaan (Koog), the Netherlands, in purchasing 100% renewable electricity.

These actions are examples of Tate & Lyle delivering on its commitments to purchase 100% renewable electricity for its operations by 2030, and to reach net zero by 2050.

Nick Waibel, Global Head of Energy at Tate & Lyle, said: “Sourcing more renewable electricity and developing partnerships to create renewable infrastructure are important steps in our pathway to net zero. These five sites are leading the charge within our network, and we look forward to sharing progress as partnerships and technologies come online across our wider network.

“Guarani, as our first site to be entirely powered by renewable energy, benefits from Brazil’s advanced infrastructure and biofuel sector. Across the world, we are progressing site specific approaches to deliver on our science-based emission reduction targets, drive efficiencies, and meet our commitments to care for our planet.”
