Soft drinks manufacturer AG Barr has signed a deal with Swedish energy giant Vattenfall to power its UK operations with renewable electricity.
The firm, which sells brands including Irn-Bru and Rubicon, will use 22GWh of fossil-free power a year to supply its factories in Cumbernauld and Milton Keynes, as well as its regional sites across Bolton, Forfar, Newcastle, Sheffield, West Midlands and Manchester.
The ten-year contract will use power from wind farms located in the UK.
Danielle Lane, Country Manager at Vattenfall UK, said: “Our goal is to give our customers a life free from fossil fuel and we are delighted to provide AG Barr with a long term supply of homegrown renewable energy.
“We are seeing more and more companies looking to secure fossil-free power for their business as they work towards net zero carbon emissions.”
