A long-standing advocate of environmental protection, s.a. Aigremont n.v. is a leader among the margarines and fats producers and is therefore committing to reduce its emissions of greenhouse gases.
Under the leadership of Philippe Thiry, owner and managing director, s.a. Aigremont n.v. already invested in a renewable energy cogeneration during the summer of 2005. This achievement stood out from other existing facilities as it works with oils and animal or vegetable fats. The cogeneration unit operated by s.a. Aigremont n.v. was ideal for a company wishing to preserve the quality of its environment while ensuring its energy independence.
To materialize this initiative, s.a. Aigremont n.v. has created a “Green Energy” logo. Most products have since carried this label.
More than 10 years later, it however became crucial to reinvest in renewable energy in order to provide the company new powerful and modern equipments. Therefore came the idea of placing photovoltaic panels on the roof of the storage facilities, as these were perfectly situated for this kind of installation.
This new installation, inaugurated in December 2017, enables us to preserve our energy independence, while maintaining our still ambitious objectives from the social and environmental points of view. Aigremont is thus still determined to stay for many years more on the way of durability and renewable energy!
