INEOS has vowed to use 100% renewable energy at its plants in Norway.
It has signed a deal with Skagerak Energitjenester to supply the clean energy for the Rafnes and Bamble plants – which are responsible for producing plastics used for drinks cartons and food packaging.
The company has said by using renewable energy it will reduce the carbon footprint of this plastic by up to 30%.
Rob Ingram from INEOS said: “We are pleased to announce this deal with Skagerak Energitjenester. It marks another important milestone on our way to reducing our overall emissions by 33% by 2030.
“It also shows our continuing focus on developing practical solutions to help our customers deliver on their own commitments to a more sustainable future.”
Thomas Jebsen, Skagerak Energitjenester CEO, added: “With our joint focus on renewable energy, we want to support INEOS in reaching its renewable energy targets and the wider green transition of Norwegian industry.”
