Bayer has signed a contract with Wuppertaler Stadtwerke, the utility company in North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany), for the supply of electricity generated from renewable energy sources.

Under this supply agreement, WSW will deliver over 120 GWh of wind and/or solar power from German wind and solar farms to Bayer. This is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of around 30,000 households.

Thanks to this agreement, Bayer's sites in Darmstadt, Weimar, Bitterfeld, Bergkamen, Berlin and Wuppertal will obtain 100% of their electricity from renewable energy sources.

"The agreement with the Wuppertaler Stadtwerke is a further step in reducing our carbon footprint," explains Matthias Berninger, Head of Public Affairs, Science, Sustainability and Occupational Health & Safety at Bayer.

Last year, we signed a global agreement in the USA that will enable us in future to purchase 60% of the electricity we buy in that country from renewable energy sources. I am delighted that we have found a good partner in Germany with Wuppertaler Stadtwerke'.
