Canadian-American sportswear retailer Lululemon has joined hands with Enel Green Power North America to further the retailer’s aim to source 100 per cent renewable energy.
The agreement will help the fashion retailer to power its 360 stores along with its five distribution centres and six offices across the US.
Importantly, the energy purchase deal will help contribute to the retailer’s aim of minimising its carbon footprint.
Enel Green Power has around 100 plants across North America, including hydroelectric, wind, solar and geothermal. Its installed renewable capacity is around 8.7 GW.
More on the deal, Esther Speck, VP of Sustainable Business and Impact, Lululemon said that the retailer’s association with Enel Green Power North America will speed up the transition to renewable energy and reduce the retailer’s emissions footprint.
Esther added that the deal is an important step towards Lululemon’s commitment to building an apparel industry that’s both sustainable and inclusive and addresses the serious implications of climate crisis.
Following the attainment of goal of 100 percent renewable energy, Lululemon now plans to produce products with 100 per cent sustainable materials by 2030.
