Redefining Renewable Energy Solutions

The VPPA will facilitate the construction of two solar projects in central Spain, adding 200 GWh of new green generation to the mainland European grid. This innovative approach not only reduces GSK's carbon footprint but also contributes to the development of renewable energy infrastructure.

Driving Sustainable Change

GSK's commitment to renewable energy extends beyond its operations, as the company is empowering its suppliers to take action through its Energize program. By providing access to renewable energy options, GSK is catalyzing sustainable change across its supply chain and the pharmaceutical sector.


GSK's partnership with Schneider Electric and IGNIS represents a significant step towards a more sustainable future. By investing in renewable energy and supporting the decarbonization of healthcare systems, GSK is setting a powerful example for the industry.
