Unilever Bangladesh recently opened its first installation of solar panels at the warehouse depot in Bogura.

A news release says that this solar panel installation was the first step in the multinational company's plan to change its distribution network in Bangladesh to use renewable energy.

It will generate 53,560 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year and contribute to the company's long-term goal of reducing carbon emissions by 202 tonnes over the following 15 years.

Only 11 years ago, the company began to use renewable energy when it put solar panels on the roof of its largest production facility in Chattogram's Kalurghat.

"We have carefully measured our greenhouse gas footprint to understand where our emissions come from and target our efforts on our journey to decarbonise our business," said Zaved Akhtar, chief executive officer of Unilever Bangladesh.

"We are keen to push this further in a joint quest towards net zero for Unilever," said Sebastian Groh, managing director of SOLshare.
