Bunge just announced a 10-year agreement with Direct Energy Renewable Services to use renewable energy at its Fort Worth, Texas oils packaging facility.
The initiative will offset 100 percent of Bunge’s power usage in that location with an equivalent amount of Renewable Energy Credits derived from Texas wind power.
Beginning in August of 2021, Bunge’s Fort Worth plant energy will be sourced from a local wind farm.
The agreement is part of a broader effort by Bunge to reduce emissions and energy in target amounts by 2026.
Bunge recently made additional strides in its sustainable energy journey by achieving 100 percent renewable electricity powered by wind at its corn mill in Atchison, Kansas and its soybean processing plant in Emporia, Kansas.
In 2019, Bunge signed a long-term contract with Evergy for eight percent of their total wind farm in Nemaha County, Kansas.
Besides these locations in Kansas, Bunge’s soybean processing plant in Council Bluffs, Iowa, gets over 60 percent of its electricity from wind power.
