Bandar Enstek, Malaysia, 18 July 2023: Cleantech Solar, a leading provider of renewable energy solutions to corporations in Southeast Asia and India, has extended their partnership with Kellogg Asia Products Sdn. Bhd, a subsidiary of the Kellogg Company in Malaysia. As part of the partnership, Cleantech Solar has commissioned and installed the second phase of a rooftop solar PV system for Kellogg Asia Products Sdn. Bhd. at their manufacturing facility in Bandar Enstek, Malaysia. The combined capacity of the rooftop solar project is 3.1 MWp. Cleantech Solar has provided the end-to-end solar solution and will guarantee the performance of the system throughout the term of the agreement.
This partnership is expected to generate over 63.5 GWh of clean electricity, which is equivalent to offsetting approximately 46 kilotonnes of CO2 emissions. Integrating solar power in their energy mix will help further Kellogg’s sustainable business practices. In line with their promise of nurturing the environment, this project will lower greenhouse gas emissions and provide Kellogg with clean electricity to power their manufacturing without any capital investment.
Mr. Matan Raj Subramaniam, Plant Director at Kellogg Asia Products Sdn. Bhd., said,
“Our founder, W.K. Kellogg, believed that running a good business was doing good for society. Staying true to this belief, we have intentionally integrated our ESG strategy – our Kellogg’s Better Days Promise – into every area of our business.
