“Our mission is to become carbon neutral by 2030 and this is an important step in cutting our carbon emissions. It will enable our business to become more sustainable and provide us with a long-term solution to our requirements. It also reflects our values and desire to do our part in the community to lead the way in responding to climate change.

“We are functioning in a time when large energy users have limited hedging options. In a volatile energy market, having a fixed price for the supply of electricity through a CPPA is not only good for the environment, but it is also great for budgeting. This solution was hedged at a price that is reflective of current market price level, but delivers budget certainty and sustainability benefits.”

“Our partnership with Flogas Enterprise is a critical component of our ongoing cost efficiency strategy and will enable us to significantly reduce operating costs by shifting to natural gas as our main fuel source. It comes at an exciting time for our business on foot of our recent completion of a €15.7m capital investment programme, which has allowed us to achieve substantial gains in efficiencies and a significant increase our competitiveness. Not only does the deal provide our business with significant cost benefits through direct access to wholesale energy prices, but we are partnering with a company that has demonstrated a deep understanding and expertise of Ireland’s energy market.”

“Our investments in renewable energy not only help to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from our operations in Ireland, but also, together with our energy efficiency efforts, help to control our electricity costs so we can pass any benefits to our customers by continuing to offer high quality home furnishings at low prices. Companies, individuals or governments – we all have responsibility to address the resource dilemma and commit to a more sustainable future. Producing our own, affordable, renewable electricity gets us one step closer to becoming completely energy independent by 2020, while ensuring our commercial success”
