Producing and purchasing renewable energy has an important role in reducing Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions.
For the last couple of years, procurement and production have become so vital that now companies rival local policy drivers in renewable energy growth. Since 2012, we have been purchasing green electricity in our Turkey manufacturing plants and the green electricity ratio in Turkey operations has increased year by year. As of 2019, 100% of the purchased electricity in our Turkey plants, including our HQ, is supplied from renewable energy sources. Since 2015 we have purchased 100% green electricity in Turkey and Romania, 20% in Russia and 15% in Thailand manufacturing plants. In line with our 2030 targets we aim to purchase 100% green electricity with Energy Attribute Certificates and long-term PPA in all global manifacturing plants (based on the availability of green electricity in the related country).
