Enzesfeld solar power

In the Emissions pillar of our Sustainability Strategy, one of our targets is to transition to 100% renewable electricity. This will in turn contribute significantly to a reduction in emissions as outlined in our 2030 targets. In fact, by the end of 2020, 18% of our production facilities had already transitioned to using renewable energy.

Among the many emissions initiatives taking place across the business, our metal production facility in Enzesfeld is taking big steps forward with solar panel technology. The team installed 93 solar panels on the facility’s roof at the end of 2020 and integrated this solar installation into the facility’s IT system to gauge performance. The photovoltaic system will enhance the sustainability of our production process and reduce the amount of electricity we take from the grid, thereby reducing the CO₂ footprint of the facility.

The Enzesfeld team has proudly linked this to one of their Community Involvement Projects whereby they donated trees to be planted within their local community. In addition, they provided a charging station for employees to charge their electric vehicles.

Exciting energy reduction milestones like these and others in Ardagh Glass Packaging – Europe drive us to continue establishing a sustainable, better future – not just for our people but for the local communities and environments in which we operate.
