In partnership with Total Solar Distributed Generation, Bolloré Logistics lowers its carbon footprint with the solarisation of its Green Hub facility in Singapore.

Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG) has completed a solar rooftop for Bolloré Logistics’ Green Hub with a capacity of nearly 1MW, the system generates an estimated 1.3GWh of electricity per year.

Over the lifetime of the solar rooftop, Bolloré Logistics will avoid over 11,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions. With over 2,400 panels, the solar PV system is expected to cover 30 per cent of the building’s power needs.

Adhering to the Paris Agreement, Bolloré Logistics is committed to reducing 43 per cent of its greenhouse gas emissions by 2027, through its CSR Programme ‘Powering Sustainable Logistics’.

“Global warming is altering how businesses run their operations. In Singapore, we have over 200,000sqm of warehouse space and 1,600 employees,” says Frederic Marcerou, managing director of Bolloré Logistics Singapore.

“It is vital for us to tap into sustainable energy to support our electricity consumption in the fight against climate change. Green Hub is our first building to be equipped with solar panels. With this milestone, we will continue our journey, in line with Singapore’s solar energy target 2030, towards a greener future,” he adds.

Gavin Adda, CEO of Total Solar Distributed Generation for Southeast Asia adds: “Total Solar DG is committed to helping its customers drive down their carbon footprint. We are proud to pursue Total’s long-term partnership with Bolloré Logistics by allowing the decarbonisation of the company’s facilities.”
