“Unilever [has] taken a ‘significant step’ toward its goal of becoming a carbon neutral company before 2030, the company said today, announcing that its factories, offices, R&D facilities, data centers, warehouses and distribution centers across five continents are now powered by 100% renewable grid electricity. The CPG giant further says there have been no ‘net on-costs’ to get to this point, explaining that the savings the company was able to generate through mechanisms such as power purchase agreements (PPAs) have counterbalanced additional costs. . . .
“Unilever also announced that, via its investment in energy efficiency programs, the company has reduced total energy consumption by 28% and halved carbon emissions per metric ton of production since 2008.”
