IRN-BRU goes green

IRN-BRU maker AG Barr is to use fossil-free electricity to power its operations across the UK following a deal with Vattenfall.

A ten-year PPA will provide fully renewable electricity to AG Barr factories in Cumbernauld and Milton Keynes and regional sites across Bolton, Forfar, Newcastle, Sheffield, West Midlands and Manchester with 22GWh per year from Vattenfall’s wind farms in the UK.

Roger White, CEO of AG Barr, said: "We're always looking for new ways to innovate and we’re excited to work with Vattenfall, who specialise in doing things differently. Introducing 100 per cent renewable electricity across all our UK sites is a big step towards reducing our carbon footprint and delivering our ambitious sustainable business goals.”
