ENGIE and Mawsons taking concrete steps toward decarbonisation

In a landmark first for the Australian construction sector, a leading supplier of concrete and quarry products has signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with ENGIE to source 100 percent of its mains electricity from firmed renewable sources.

Victoria-based Mawsons Concrete and Quarries is partnering with ENGIE in its transition to renewable energy and in doing so, significantly reducing the environmental impact of its operations across regional Victoria and southern NSW.

Mawsons’ commitment to clean energy will reduce its carbon emissions by around 5200 tonnes of CO2 per year. In addition to the emissions reduction benefits, the ENGIE PPA also provides Mawsons price and supply security in what has recently been a volatile energy market.

“This agreement is a tangible example of one of the things that ENGIE does best – partner with progressive companies looking to access green energy, secured and delivered at competitive long-term prices,” said Andrew Hyland, ENGIE’s Executive General Manager, Energy Management.

“Through our position in the market and our renewable and lower carbon generation assets, ENGIE is perfectly placed to deliver these outcomes for a range of customers. We are proud of our role in powering Australia’s energy transition,” said Mr Hyland.

Through its environmental policies, wastewater and site management programs and transition to renewable energy sources, Mawsons is taking a leadership role in sustainability in what has long been considered a carbon intensive industry.

“This is the right thing to do and the right time to do it. We want to do our part to help reduce global warming and manage the risks of drought and bushfires in the future. We also believe in helping local industries to grow, and the renewable power sector is a major investor and employer in regional Australia,” said John Mawson, Managing Director, Mawsons.

ENGIE is helping businesses transition to a zero-carbon economy through reduced energy consumption and environmentally-friendly solutions. Find out more about our renewable Power Purchase Agreements .
