Emmi Switches to 100% Renewable Hydroelectricity From BKW

Emmi has committed to reducing its CO2 emissions by 25 % by 2020. In an important step towards meeting this objective, the largest Swiss milk processor is switching to sustainable electricity. To this end, it is set to rely entirely on renewable energy and on BKW as its partner. BKW will supply Emmi with around 110 gigawatt hours of hydroelectricity a year – enough to meet the needs of all Emmi facilities in Switzerland.

As part of its commitment to sustainability, Emmi has decided to rely entirely on hydroelectricity for all of its 36 facilities in Switzerland, enabling the largest Swiss milk processor to reduce its annual CO2 emissions by 14000 tonnes.

BKW was already supplying several Emmi locations with electricity. Based on the positive experiences, as well as its know-how and extensive offering, Emmi has now opted for a full supply from BKW. From 2017, BKW is set to supply all Emmi production sites in Switzerland with around 110 gigawatt hours of electricity each year for a period of three years.

Max Peter, Head of Retail and Supply Chain Management Switzerland at Emmi, says: “With its innovative and flexible procurement model, BKW will enable us to optimally satisfy our electricity requirements as well as take an important step towards meeting our CO2 reduction targets.” Christoph Matter, Head of Sales at BKW, adds: “We are delighted to be able to supply an important customer in Emmi with sustainable hydroelectricity throughout Switzerland.”

Other services that Emmi will be able to benefit from besides the supply of electricity include the BKW Club. Comprising a wealth of information – from the latest analyses of load profile valuations on the stock exchange to the monitoring of defined limits – this online tool provides compact assistance for the energy industry and is available to all of BKW’s major customers.
