La Lorraine Poland Switches to 100% Green Electricity

La Lorraine Group (LLBG) announced that in January 2023 it made the switch to 100% renewable electricity for the production site in Poland. This resulted in a carbon reduction of more than 35,000 tons. The company’s other production sites will follow in the coming years. 

LLBG is committed to reduce its energy consumption by 4% year-on-year and to switch to 100% green electricity by 2030.

The company began its process towards sustainability by creating awareness on their energy hotspots and identifying potential reduction areas. That meant optimizing processes and production efficiency, looking for alternative baking processes, and improving building techniques and installations to make them more energy efficient. In 2022 alone, their first initiatives led to a reduction of 825,000 kWh compared to 2021. 

“Energy optimization has always been on our radar, but we moved to a different league since our family shareholders formulated LLBG’s renewed sustainability goals,” saysJan Sinnaeve

Group Technical Service Manager. “We know that the transformation to a zero carbon business is the only way for our business to stay relevant in the next decade(s). Thanks to our ambitious targets, the energy transition has become part of all strategic discussions and has become a driver for innovation within our business. And it isn’t about the future anymore: what first seemed to be an unrealistic dream has now translated into a belief that a zero carbon business is possible and a roadmap to support our ambition.”
