Missaussauga, Ontario — March 16, 2018 — BASF Canada announced its partnership with Bullfrog Power to help decrease its carbon output. The new environmentally friendly standards will be put into place at BASF’s headquarters, as well as production facilities in Windsor, Cornwall, Etobicoke, Blackie, Nisku, Saint Leonard and Saskatoon.
“Through the partnership with Bullfrog Power, BASF is supporting an innovative approach to growing Canada’s renewable energy industry,” said Marcelo Lu, president of BASF Canada. “BASF wants to contribute to a world that provides a viable future with enhanced quality of life for everyone. Partnering with Bullfrog Power means BASF is helping to support community renewable energy projects across Canada.”
According to a press release, the agreement with Bullfrog Power ensures that 100 percent renewable electricity is put onto the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity being used at BASF’s Canadian corporate headquarters and its production facilities. Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.
Ron Seftel, chief executive officer, Bullfrog Power, said, “BASF’s partnership signifies that manufacturers in the supply chain increasingly see energy as a key input when making their products more sustainable. As a global leader and major chemistry company in Canada, BASF is taking a proactive approach to addressing climate change by proactively committing to renewable electricity at its Canadian sites.”
