Ontex Activates Large Solar Power Installation in Italy
Ontex has activated a large solar installation at the site of its factory in Ortona, Abruzzo region, Italy.

The company is opening solar power installations in Europe and the Americas to produce more energy on-site and achieve carbon-neutral operations by 2030.
Ontex’s factories in Italy and eight other European countries run on 100% electricity from renewable sources. The Ontex Group’s total is 91% electricity from renewable sources.
In times of energy constraints, Ontex plans to become carbon neutral and less dependent on energy from the grid through on-site renewable energy generation, energy conservation, purchase of energy from renewable sources, and carbon offsets for the remaining carbon emissions.
Annick De Poorter, Ontex’s Executive Vice President for R&D and Sustainability, said: “We can now produce around a quarter of the electricity we need to manufacture essential hygiene goods at our factory in Italy. This is another step towards our goal to have carbon neutral operations by 2030.”
The solar system was developed and financed by the company Menapy Italia srl, who also installed Ontex’s solar power in Eeklo, Belgium and Segovia, Spain.
Federico Dotto, Country Manager, Menapy Italia srl, said: “We should shift our power supplies from oil, coal, and natural gas to wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources, which are a clear winner when it comes to boosting the economy. Companies across Europe are working hard to reduce their energy needs and improve their impact on the environment. As Menapy, we are proud to support Ontex in achieving their ambitious sustainability goals, which are also a sound business decision.”
