Mondelēz Marks Bold Step Forward in Ambition Towards Net Emissions Target by Collaborating with Yellow Door Energy in Bahrain

June 5, 2022

Mondelēz Bahrain Biscuits WLL, signed recently a solar power purchase agreement (“PPA”) with Yellow Door Energy, a leading provider of sustainable energy for businesses in the Middle East and Pakistan.

Located at the state-of-the-art Mondelēz biscuit factory in Al-Hidd, Bahrain, the solar plant will have a capacity of 2.3 megawatts and will comprise over 4,200 solar panels for both rooftop and carport applications. Once completed, the solar plant is expected to produce 3,820 megawatt-hours of clean energy in the first year of operation, equivalent to reducing carbon emissions by 2,400 metric tons.

Since its inception, Mondelēz Bahrain Biscuits has remained committed to integrating sustainable practices at the heart of its business operations and setting ambitious goals to promote sustainability. We are focused to scale up our sustainability efforts to deliver meaningful change. Our partnership with Yellow Door Energy is a step forward in our plans to create a sustainable future for snacking in Bahrain and the region, which will help us reduce our end-to-end CO2 emissions.
