Borealis, a supplier of advanced and sustainable polyolefins solutions, and Vattenfall, one of the Europe’s largest producers and retailers of electricity and heat, signed their first long-term renewable hydropower purchase agreement (PPA) in December 2023.

 

Starting in January 2024, Vattenfall began to supply Borealis’ operations in Stenungsund with 175 GWh of renewable energy per year from its hydropower plants located along the Lule River in Sweden over the course of the next ten years.

This agreement promotes decarbonization as it results in a reduction of approximately 6,800 metric tons per year in Borealis' Scope 2 emissions, measured based on Greenhouse Gas Protocol, Market based approach with residual emission factor of 2022 by AIB (Association of Issuing Bodies).

 

With the recently signed PPA with Vattenfall and nine other PPA signed with different partners since 2021, Borealis has already achieved its 2025 intermediate target of sourcing 40% of the electricity needed for its Polyolefins and Base Chemicals operations from renewable sources.

 

The company is also closer to its aim to utilize 100% renewable electricity in the production processes of these two key business segments by 2030.

 

"By partnering with Vattenfall in the signing of this ten-year Power Purchase Agreement, we are taking a major step towards achieving our ambitious Energy & Climate targets, showcasing our dedication to re-inventing essentials for sustainable living,” said Wolfram Krenn, Executive Vice President Base Chemicals & Operations from Borealis.
