Bayer: Signs a renewable energy supply contract

( – Bayer signs a contract to supply electricity produced from renewable energy sources with Wuppertaler Stadtwerke, the public utility company in North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany).

Under this supply agreement, WSW will deliver more than 120 GWh of wind and/or solar energy from German wind and solar farms to Bayer. This is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of around 30,000 households.

Through this agreement, Bayer’s locations in Darmstadt, Weimar, Bitterfeld, Bergkamen, Berlin and Wuppertal will obtain 100% of electricity from renewable energy sources.

‘The agreement with the Wuppertaler Stadtwerke is a further step in reducing our carbon footprint,’ explains Matthias Berninger, Head of Public Affairs, Science, Sustainability and Occupational Health and Safety at Bayer.

‘Last year we signed a comprehensive agreement in the United States which will allow us in the future to purchase 60% of the electricity we buy in this country from renewable energy sources. I am delighted that we have found a good partner in Germany with Wuppertaler Stadtwerke’.
