06:00 EDT SEKISUI Specialty Chemicals Now Runs on Renewable Energy

May 20, 2022

News provided by Share this article Share this article DALLAS, May 20, 2022 /CNW/ -- SEKISUI Specialty Chemical is excited to announce a 5-year, renewable energy agreement with TXU Energy. Edge Energy Consulting, LLC provided advisory services to SEKISUI throughout the entire procurement process. This is one of several measures SEKISUI is taking to improve our company's balance with natural resources and reduce our carbon footprint. Beginning in April 2022, SEKISU''s renewable purchase will be sourced from the Indian Mesa wind farm located in Pecos County, Texas.

SDG #12 aims to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns, with a focus on reducing the use of fossil fuels which parallels SEKISUI ESG principle of mitigating of climate change.
