Nestlé Professional has installed over 4,000 photovoltaic panels on the roof of the distribution centre for its Maggi brand in Singen, Germany in a further step towards reducing the company's environmental impact.
The installation of the photovoltaic panel technology is part of wider sustainable energy plans which has already seen the Maggi factory running an energy sharing scheme which captures excess heat energy from a local car component factory. The energy captured is enough to produce 30 tonnes of steam an hour which is then used in the Maggi factory.
Neil Stephens, managing director for Nestlé Professional commented: "We strive to find ways to positively impact on our processes and our energy consumption. This is a great example of how working together companies can find ways to make changes, which not only make sense from a sustainability point of view but is good for business."
