Soft drinks company Britvic has this month switched to 100% renewable electricity for all its sites in Great Britain: saving more than 17,000 tonnes of CO2e per year, the equivalent to taking more than 3,300 cars off the road.

Britvic is the largest supplier of branded still soft drinks and second largest supplier of branded carbonated drinks in Great Britain. It has signed a four-year deal with energy provider E.ON for renewable energy, including wind generated electricity, covering all its offices, warehouses and factories.

Britvic already uses 100% renewable energy in its operations in Ireland and Brazil; and in France it uses low carbon energy sources across its sites.

Alison Rothnie, Senior Sustainability Manager, Britvic said: “We believe that businesses have a role to play in tackling the global climate change challenge, and energy efficiency and emissions reductions have been a priority area for our supply chain operations for a number of years in all the countries where we operate.

“The move to renewable electricity in Great Britain through our partnership with E.ON is a significant step, not only in helping us to minimise the environmental impact of our operations and reduce our carbon emissions, but also supporting the development of a low carbon future for the UK.”
