NKT’s cable manufacturing factories are now running on electricity from renewable energy sources, the company informed, adding that its CO2-emissions from energy consumption are now 66 per cent lower than last year.
The 66 per cent reduction in CO2-emissions from energy consumption came through using green electricity in the factories, as well as for the cable-laying vessel NKT Victoria.
The change in energy supply has been made by entering agreements with local utilities to ensure that certificates are in place to verify that the power supply originates from renewable energy sources for the NKT manufacturing sites in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Poland and Czech Republic.
The company said that lowering the carbon footprint of its power cable business is a key step in supporting the global transition to renewable energy.
“We are taking our responsibility seriously as a key contributor to the infrastructure needed for the green transformation. Running our manufacturing on green electricity is yet another milestone in our ambition to reduce our carbon footprint to ensure that the development of the global power grids is based on the technologies with the lowest environmental footprint possible“, said Alexander Kara, President & CEO of NKT.
