NRG Energy, Inc. and Unilever United States, Inc. Announce Strategic Partnership

NRG Energy, Inc. and Unilever United States, Inc. have announced the formation of a strategic partnership. The partnership aligns with the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, which is the company's global blueprint for sustainable growth that aims to double the size of Unilever's business while reducing the company's environmental footprint and increasing its positive social impact. Unilever US already purchases 100% of its electricity from renewable sources for all of its sites through renewable energy certificates (RECs), which are credits for using energy from third-party renewable sources. Now, through this novel partnership, NRG will help Unilever take the next step beyond RECs by providing solutions for onsite and offsite renewable generation resulting in 100% clean energy for all energy use at Unilever US sites by 2020. Through the partnership, NRG will employ various alternative energy technologies that will be scalable and transferable to other industry sectors.
