Pursuing its “Sustainable Beauty” CSR roadmap, and in line with its decarbonization plan, Groupe Pochet has teamed up with ABO Wind, a major player in the development of renewable energies worldwide, by signing a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement.
Through this agreement, Groupe Pochet is acting to reduce its impact on the planet by sourcing green energy and securing the long-term purchase price of electricity. As a major project under the decarbonization plan, the electric furnace, which will be operational by the end of 2024, will be partly supplied by green energy from the future photovoltaic plant.
The Groupe Pochet is committed to sourcing its energy locally and in France, and other similar projects will see the light of day in the coming months.
Bold innovation for a sustainable future
The Groupe Pochet is convinced that innovation means going beyond products and processes to build meaningful partnerships with its entire ecosystem, opening up to the world and pursuing its transformation.
“In pursuit of our decarbonization plan and our goal of reducing our CO2 emissions by 50 percent by 2033, this long-term power purchase agreement will enable us to produce sustainably for Luxury Differently,” said Benoit Marszalek, Pochet du Courval’s Director of Operations.
“Today, to ensure energy sovereignty in France, it is essential to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy production plants. This park will therefore add to our existing photovoltaic capacity.
We’re delighted that this electricity will be used by a French family business. In this way, the CPPA will help to electrify part of the Pochet Group’s electricity needs. It’s a long-term relationship that we’re establishing today,” said Benoit Clouet, Managing Director of ABO Wind Sarl.
