In 2021, group companies in Axel Johnson have entered a group-wide agreement with solar energy company Alight to enable the development of three solar parks, doubling Sweden’s solar energy output. The development will have a total annual production of more than 90 gigawatt hours (GWh).
“As a part of our CO₂ strategy, we are proud to be a part of enabling the establishment of Sweden’s largest solar park together with our sister companies within the Axel Johnson Group,” says Malin Ripa, Head of Sustainability at Axel Johnson International. “We already buy electricity from renewable sources, but through this initiative we are also increasing the amount of renewable electricity in the Swedish market.”
Nine Sweden-based companies in Axel Johnson International will buy a total of 2.3 GWh per year from the solar park, which is scheduled to be up and running by the end of 2022. These include the Nomo Group, Certex Svenska AB, Forankra AB, Jens S Transmissioner AB, OCS Overhead Conveyor Systems AB, Ro-Ro International AB, Sternhammar AB, Sverull ElektroDynamo AB and Trans-Auto AB
