We are conscious of the world around us.

Committed to reducing our carbon intensity

We are proud to report that we achieved our goal of cutting our carbon intensity in half by 2020, 4 years early. Next, we are implementing an additional 24MW of green energy by 2025 in our operations, doubling our current green energy capacity.
