SC Johnson installs windmill

SC Johnson launched its first owned and operated windmill at its Europlant in Mijdrecht, the Netherlands, its largest European manufacturing plant.

This $4.7 million investment adds to SC Johnson’s strategic array of clean energy projects designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and further drive the company’s voluntary GHG emissions goals.

The 262 foot tall wind turbine will generate 66 percent of the electricity needed to power SC Johnson’s Europlant, preventing 3,930 metric tons (3,930,000 kilograms) of GHG annually.
