Snack Company Kellanova Grow its Renewable Energy Procurement Programme

Snack company Kellanova are continuing to expand their ambitious renewable energy procurement programme, with the core target of reaching 100 percent renewable electricity in global Kellanova-owned manufacturing facilities by the end of 2030.

The company formerly known as Kellogg Company is pursuing a strategy called their Better Days Promise, and renewable energy procurement is a significant pillar of the plan.  

Kellanova is forecasting to be operating at 90% renewable energy sourcing by the end of 2024, through a previously signed virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA). The company signed a long-term wind energy VPPA in North America in 2021 for approximately 360 gigawatt hours of wind electricity annually.

"Today's announcement is a big step toward achieving our Better Days Promise goal of 100 percent renewable electricity across our global manufacturing facilities by the end of 2030," said Janelle Meyers, Chief Sustainability officer, Kellanova. "As a global food company, we have a significant role to play in helping to reduce reliance on limited energy sources across our value chain and creating a positive impact for people and the planet."

Worldwide Kellanova progress in green energy procurement

Kellanova’s European manufacturing operations have already achieved the procurement of 100 percent renewable electricity through the purchase of RECs. The company’s European  facilities have been purchasing RECs since 2016. The company is also taking part in a research programme partnership with the U.K. government to investigate the potential use of green hydrogen as an alternative to natural gas at manufacturing plants.  

In the Asia, Middle East and Africa region, Kellanova has begun growing the percentage of renewable electricity from  a baseline of 1% in 2018 to 33% in 2023.
