Chicago-based consumer goods maker Kraft Heinz has announced a virtual power purchase agreement with BHE Renewables, a part of the Berkshire Hathaway Energy business, for its functioning within the US, which is the largest part of the Company’s North America Zone.

This agreement is constructed to allow Kraft Heinz to attain its goal of procuring a large chunk of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025, a primary focus area of the company’s net-zero emissions plans.
 
“As one of the world’s largest food and beverage companies, we are committed to contributing to global efforts to reduce the ongoing threat of climate change," said Miguel Patricio, CEO and Board Chair, Kraft Heinz. “In 2020, we committed to buy the majority of our electricity from renewable sources by 2025. This agreement with BHE Renewables helps put us on track to accomplish that aspiration and brings us one step closer to achieving net zero emissions by 2050.”
 
Kraft Heinz intends to purchase enough renewable energy from BHE Renewables to offset more than 15 percent of the energy usage at its US manufacturing sites by the end of 2022.

By the end of 2025, this amount is expected to rise to about 60 percent. The renewable energy is planned to come from BHE Renewables’ 158-megawatt Gopher Creek wind farm in Scurry County, TX.
 
“We are proud to support Kraft Heinz as it carries out its commitment to create a more sustainable environment,” said Steve Rowley, Vice President, Renewable Development and Energy Markets at BHE Renewables. “Kraft Heinz has an ambitious goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions, and we look forward to working with them to meet their renewable energy needs.”
