In their “Road to Sustainability 2030”, Etex detail their plan to work towards a more sustainable world, of which decarbonisation represents a key pillar. Over the past several years, Etex has been increasing the share of green electricity they source for their activities and operations. In 2021, the proportion of renewable electricity was at 82%.
The production of renewable electricity is certified by Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs). These are the accepted legal instrument through which claims of renewable energy generation and consumption are substantiated in the global renewable energy market. There are different types of EAC for different regions of the world, and they are all in compliance with the quality criteria set by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol in the latest Scope 2 guidance document.
