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.”
