Cargill invests in wind power in the North and Northeast

The multinational Cargill signed a 10-year PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) with the company Omega Energia, which invests in 100% clean and renewable energy, with the objective of investing in wind energy to supply the Ilhéus and Barreiras plants in Bahia, and to the port terminals of Miritituba and Santarém, in Pará. 

With the investment, the multinational will have an estimated savings of US$ 11 million in the period and 10,547 metric tons of CO2 avoided annually (equivalent amount to energy spent on 1,217 homes for one year).

The initiative is within the company's goal of reducing absolute greenhouse gas emissions in all its operations by 10% by 2025, as measured against the 2017 baseline, and aligned with the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
