Solvay installs solar panels

Solvay reports that it has installed solar panels at its Brussels headquarters as part of its One Planet green initiative.

According to the company, the peak power of the installed solar panels will be over 1000 kWp, which will cover the electrical needs of the Solvay headquarters offices.

The company has reportedly committed to reduce its emissions by 26% by 2030, aligning its trajectory with the ‘well below 2°C temperature increase’ goal outlined in the 2015 Paris Agreement. Solvay also aims to generate 15% of its revenue from either bio-based or recycled-based materials by 2030.
