Feeding a sustainable planet with Danone North America and Enel Green Power

Some of America’s favorite fresh dairy and plant-based food and beverage brands are becoming even more sustainable. Danone North America is committed to purchasing 100% of its electricity from renewable sources and is accelerating towards its sustainable energy goal.

Partnership

Sustainable food for a sustainable future

Environmental and social responsibility is embedded throughout Danone North America, which is both a purpose-driven business and the world’s largest Certified B Corporation® (B Corp). One of the key tenets of Danone’s sustainability strategy is its renewable energy goal – the company is committed to securing 100% of its purchased electricity from renewable sources by 2030. A significant step in advancing this goal was made last year when Danone North America entered into two long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) partnerships with Enel Green Power for the physical delivery of renewable energy.

As Danone North America sought to sustainably power its production facilities in Texas, Enel Green Power designed a custom solution to secure physical delivery to its plants. The result is a PPA enabling the delivery of the renewable electricity associated with 20.6 MW at the High Lonesome Wind Project in Texas. Thanks to this agreement with Danone North America, what was initially a 450 MW project has been increased to 500 MW, bringing even cleaner, more sustainable energy to the grid. 

Danone North America has also partnered with Enel Green Power at the HillTopper Wind Project in Illinois. Through a 6 MW PPA, the B Corp is receiving even more renewable electricity to sustainably support its operations.
