Northern Ireland’s only supplier of 100% locally-generated renewable electricity for businesses, 3T Power, says the Henderson Group has renewed its partnership with the energy supply company for a third year, confirming a contract valued at £5m per annum.
Doubling down on their efforts to minimise the company’s impact on the environment by reducing their carbon footprint and focusing on sustainability in all aspects of their supply chain, Henderson Group’s Mallusk-based headquarters will continue to be powered by wind electricity generated exclusively via 3T Power’s network of independent wind turbines dotted across Northern Ireland.
Owners of the SPAR, EUROSPAR, ViVO, ViVOXTRA and ViVO Essentials franchises in Northern Ireland, Henderson Group has been distributing food and grocery-related products to the convenience retail sector for over 120 years. The Group consists of four companies, each of which operates under the Henderson Group banner.
3T Power has been supplying clean energy to the Group’s warehousing facilities and retail network since 2018, helping to meet Henderson Group’s CO2 reduction goals. In the period since switching to 3T Power, it is estimated that Henderson Group has achieved a 1,000 tonne per year carbon reduction, equal to the weight of three Boeing 747 jets.The partnership will also ensure long-term energy savings through the confirmation of a low-cost, secure tariff.
“We were drawn to working with the 3T Power team because of the team’s strong ties to the local community, competitive pricing, and their commitment to helping Henderson Group meet our requirement to be carbon neutral on our electricity supply and compliance with our zero-carbon commitment,” commented Glen Crumley, Group Energy Manager, Henderson Group.
