Enel Green Power (EGP) has launched in Mexico its "Green Label", to be placed on products or businesses fully relying on the company’s renewable energy, or ‘100% green energy by Enel Green Power’, as the label indicates.
This new label may apply to the facilities to which energy is supplied, as well as to the products themselves. CRIOTEC, a Mexican company specialized in the production of commercial refrigeration equipment, will be the first EGP customer to be green-labelled by the renewables company.
“The introduction of eco-labels reflects the growing interest of companies to integrate renewable energy into their industrial and commercial processes, and Enel Green Power has proven to be the ideal partner for those businesses willing to boost their sustainability profile. From now onwards, our new ‘Green label’ will support the initiative of those companies in their acting as an agent of change to promote sustainable practices.”
– Paolo Romanacci, Head of Enel Green Power Mexico
Under the power supply contract signed in 2017, Enel Green Power is supplying to CRIOTEC, over a 10-year period, around 5,3 GWh annually of electricity from the 200 MW Dominica wind farm in the state of San Luis Potosi.
“Enel Green Power and CRIOTEC have had a solid and functional relationship for more than two years and the fact that we are the first company to use the Green Label fills us with pride. The intention is that our customers know our sustainable actions and that more companies join similar practices. Starting from now, the Green Label will be applied to over 500 thousand refrigerators we are producing with 100% green energy.”
– Eduardo A. Elizondo Barragán, Chairman of the Board and CEO of CRIOTEC
