Renewable Electricity

For some time, Kellogg has been working to reduce its impact on the climate. Our company was one of the first to set science-based targets to help do so across our value chain. Since then, we’ve joined RE100 and are increasing global demand for and in turn supply of – renewable electricity.

Our Commitment

As part of our Kellogg’s Better Days Promise goal to create better days for 3 billion people by the end of 2030, we aim to achieve 100% renewable electricity in all global Kellogg manufacturing facilities by the end of 2050.

Our Approach

By harnessing power from renewable sources like wind and sun, we are reducing our reliance on limited energy sources like coal, oil and gas.

For example:

  • 100% of the electricity we use in our Western European and Australian manufacturing and offices is renewable.
  • Facilities in India, Malaysia and Mexico use solar panels in part to power their electricity need (7%, 10% and 12%, respectively).
  • In the U.S., we’re purchasing renewable electricity in several Kellogg-owned facilities, using solar panels in our Solana Beach, California office, and purchasing the electricity equivalent of 100 megawatts from a wind farm, which will help to power 50% of the volume of electricity used across our North American manufacturing facilities.
  • In our Australia manufacturing facility, we introduced smart technology, including artificial intelligence, to best manage natural resources.
  • Pringles® manufacturing facilities in Poland and Tennessee reduced their energy use by replacing more than 9,000 lights with newer LEDG technology.
  • In the U.S., several manufacturing facilities installed ultra-low-global warming potential (ULGWP) chillers.

Our Progress

In 2021, 28.6% of the electricity we used in global Kellogg-owned manufacturing facilities came from renewable sources.
