AkzoNobel, the maker of paint brands like Dulux, has signed a long-term agreement with Cleantech Solar to set up three rooftop solar systems at its manufacturing sites in Thailand and Malaysia.

 

The solar power systems have been fully funded by Cleantech Solar, which will also operate and maintain the system throughout the contract.

 

The systems have been set up in AkzoNobel factories in Chonburi and Samut Sakhon in Thailand and in Nilai, Malaysia. The plants, where 7,818 solar panels have been installed, will produce 1.6 megawatts combined and prevent the production of 28,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide during the term of the agreement.

Wijnand Bruinsma, AkzoNobel’s sustainability programme manager, said: “Sustainability is one of our core principles. We strive to lead our industry by empowering people, reducing our impact on the planet and consistently innovating to deliver the most sustainable solutions for our customers.

 

That is why we call our approach ‘People. Planet. Paint’. It is about focusing on the things we can truly influence. Through our partnership with Cleantech Solar, we are delivering on our ambition to reduce energy use and lower CO2 emissions while increasing our use of renewable energy.”

 

“I am pleased to see another successful multi-country rollout from the Cleantech Solar team and would like to extend hearty congratulations to AkzoNobel on achieving another sustainability milestone in the region.

 

Cleantech Solar takes pride in the fact that we are working together with AkzoNobel, an industry leader and established member of RE100 [100 per cent renewable energy], to make a switch to clean and competitive electricity to meet their social, environmental and economic performance targets,” said Raju Shukla, founder and executive chair of Cleantech Solar.

The year 2000 was the turning point for going green , away from all fossile fuels .

Now it's too late , the climate change is irreversible by now .

But still , solar panels should be on EVERY roof .

28000 tonnes of carbon dioxide is a lot already .
