HEINEKEN Mexico and Enel Green Power Mexico close a 100% renewable energy agreement

Published on Monday, 9 March 2020

“This alliance is historic and something to be proud, as it represents a firm step towards the goal of making this year's operations of the company 66% renewable in terms of energy consumption, with the aim to achieve 100% in 2030.”

– Marco Antonio Mascarúa Galindo, Vice President of Corporate Affairs of HEINEKEN Mexico

Mascarúa Galindo recalled that HEINEKEN México uses renewable electricity in some of its production plants, distribution centers and in “SIX” stores located at different states of the country and said that through all actions in this area, Heineken México ratifies its commitment to socio-environmental responsibility reflected in results such as the 10% decrease in CO2 emissions in production, thanks to the use of biogas and renewable energy, as well as a reduction to 2.8 liters of water to produce a liter of beer.

He added that with the agreement signed, the Meoqui facility, will consolidate its position as the first brewery in Latin America that functions under an ecosystem of circular economy, since it also shares waste from production with other nearby companies as materials for reuse, hence reducing waste to zero and reducing environmental impact.

“With this agreement, we become a strategic ally of one of the most sustainable and innovative companies, not only in Mexico, but in the world. In addition to sharing these values in our operations, we strengthen our commitment to reduce the impact of climate change.”

– Paolo Romanacci, Enel Country Manager in Mexico

With this strategic partnership, Enel Green Power consolidates its position as a competitive qualified supplier for any industry, as well as its role of key player in strengthening the Mexican electricity market by offering the best energy solutions with clean and sustainable electricity at competitive prices.

Romanacci emphasized that “Enel is one of the largest private operators of renewable energy in the country, with a managed capacity of over 2,660 MW and around 320 MW of projects under construction”.
