Renewable power to ensure our long term climate goals
The Borealis Base Chemicals business unit is responsible for sourcing renewable power and natural gas for all European Base Chemicals and Polyolefins production locations, in addition to managing primary utilities. The business unit, thus, plays a crucial role in ensuring that Borealis achieves its ambitious, long-term Energy & Climate goals.
These include using an ever-higher share of renewable power in its own operations. By 2030, 100% of electricity used in Borealis Polyolefins and Base Chemicals operations should be renewable in origin, thanks to a diverse renewable energy portfolio based on wind, solar, and hydropower. Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions shall be reduced from 5.1 million tons per year (from a 2019 baseline) to 2 million tons by 2030, with expanded use of renewable power sources making up the majority of Scope 2 emissions reductions.
