Copefrut signs a deal pledging to use only clean energy and renewable sources

Copefrut, which is a Chilean firm with more than 65 years of experience in the production as well as export of the organic and traditional fresh fruit, has signed a deal with the Enel Generación firm to devote to 100% green energy supplies as well as renewable sources. This will allow the fruit firm to alter where its power comes from for activities in processing plants throughout Chile’s central region, allowing the company to reduce costs and increase efficiency.

“We feel that it is our obligation to reinvent agriculture in the years ahead, and as a result, we are making critical promises in terms of environmental and sustainability responsibility.” The use of 100 percent renewable energy in our manufacturing processes is among the steps that will allow us to make significant progress in the areas that will define our present and future problems, according to Manuel Ibáez, Copefrut Operations Manager.

As per data from the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), the world’s foremost authority on climate change, the burning of fossil fuels to generate energy and heat in homes, industries, and transportation accounts for 60 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change as well as global warming. The IPCC is the world’s foremost authority on climate change.

There are numerous ways that energy is used in agriculture, including pumping water for drainage or irrigation, in machinery, harvesting, and treatments, during packing and preservation of the fruit (among other methods in the production process), among many other mechanisms in the production chain. In light of these considerations, the implementation of these pledges at the industrial level is imperative in order to aid in the consolidation of the shift away from polluting sources and toward the utilization of renewable, clean energy.

It was completed in May 2021 and is going to last for four years. Under the agreement, Enel will examine renewable energy sources like geothermal, wind, solar, and hydraulic energy in order to acquire the green seal from the International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-REC), which is an independent international organization that certifies that all energy provided by the Enel company is pumped into SEN (National Electric System) by the renewable generation sources. Copefrut is able to cut greenhouse gas emissions, allow the great majority of energy traceability, certify product origin as well as ownership, and, most significantly, minimize the social and environmental impact of manufacturing processes as a result.

With this contract and certification, we will be able to assist our clients in achieving their strategic objectives, such as increasing the sustainability of their operations and making them more friendly to their communities and the environment, according to Humberto Espejo, who works as the Trading and Marketing Manager at Enel Generación. Copefrut has already included this as part of its business vision and goal, which is an example of a challenge and dedication that all industries should take on as well.
