Bolloré Logistics to cut over 11,500 tons CO2 emissions with solar system by Total Solar
Singapore, 30 April 2020 – Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG) has completed a solar rooftop for Bolloré Logistics’ Green Hub in Pioneer Turn, Singapore. With a capacity of nearly 1MW, the system generates an estimated 1.3GWh of electricity per year. Over the lifetime of the solar rooftop, Bolloré Logistics will avoid over 11,500 tons of CO2 emissions. With over 2,400 panels, the solar PV system is expected to cover 30 per cent of the building’s power needs.
Adhering to the Paris Agreement, Bolloré Logistics is committed to reducing 43 per cent of its greenhouse gas emissions by 2027, through its CSR Program ‘Powering Sustainable Logistics’.
“Global warming is altering how businesses run their operations. In Singapore, we have over 200,000sqm of warehouse space and 1,600 employees. It is vital for us to tap into sustainable energy to support our electricity consumption in the fight against climate change. Green Hub is our first building to be equipped with solar panels. With this milestone, we will continue our journey, in line with Singapore’s solar energy target 2030, towards a greener future,” said Frederic Marcerou, Managing Director of Bolloré Logistics Singapore.
