LM Wind Power pledges to become carbon neutral by 2018
Jan 9 2017
LM Wind Power plans to be carbon neutral by 2018, making it one of the first in the wind industry to take such a step. It will begin by sourcing 100% of its electricity from renewable energy sources during 2017. With the ambition to eliminate and offset the CO2 emissions from its own operations by 2018, LM Wind Power says it joins an exclusive group of corporate leaders committed to demonstrating the leadership and action required to keep global warming below 2 degrees celcius, and setting new standards to accelerate the de-carbonization of the wind industry's own supply chain.
LM Wind Power explains it has produced more than 185,000 blades since the company began blade operations in 1978. This corresponds to approximately 77 GW of installed wind power capacity which each year effectively replaces approximately 147 million tons of CO2. This corresponds to the annual CO2 emissions from electricity used in 20 million (US) homes.
