The use of renewable and clean energy seeks to reduce our environmental impact, take care of our resources and the planet for future generations.

Let's take care of our planet

Our planet gives us everything we need to make it our home: air, water and natural resources with which we can create and transform. In this process, we use energy, which inevitably impacts the environment. Aware of these impacts, we are constantly looking for ways to increase efficiency and minimize environmental impacts.

On February 14, we celebrate Valentine’s Day and World Energy Day,  the purpose of which is to promote the use of alternative energy sources and reduce the use of non-renewable energies. Grupo Bimbo takes this task very seriously.

Decreasing our carbon footprint is a priority for us, which is why we take various measures for this purpose.

* We created Bimbo Solar, which, in its initial phase, consists of 33 systems that will generate 3.7 MW of solar energy preventing the emission of 2,500 tons of CO2 per year, or the equivalent of 3,115 barrels of oil.

* We have a fleet of 420 electric vehicles.

* The Piedra Larga wind farm supplies clean electricity to our facilities in Mexico.

* We are part of the RE100 commitment, thanks to which 100% of our electricity worldwide will come from renewable sources by 2025.

World Energy Day reminds us how important and necessary it is to use resources from renewable sources. This planet belongs to all, to those who live here and to future generations, to whom we have a commitment to provide a better place to live.
