Linde recently announced it has signed two major agreements in Brazil for the supply of renewable energy.
White Martins, Linde’s subsidiary, has entered into agreements to secure more than two million megawatt hours per year of renewable energy, replacing almost half of its existing power usage in Brazil. Supply has already commenced from the Futura I Solar Complex, one of the largest photovoltaic parks in Latin America, and the Chuí Wind Farm, in Rio Grande do Sul.
The new agreements will increase Linde’s global active renewable energy by more than 60%. More broadly, Linde is on track to meet its commitment to double the purchase of low carbon energy by 2028. The agreements support Linde’s science-based absolute greenhouse gas reduction target for 2035 and its 2050 climate neutrality ambition.
