R&W Scott and Scottish Power team up for greener future

June 2022

As part of ongoing efforts to make more sustainable choices, we have teamed up with Scottish Power to explore ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We are committed to being at the forefront of innovation and will now work with Scottish Power to consider the potential of using green hydrogen and renewable electricity to take our operations into a clean energy future.

“While our dedication to creating quality food products hasn’t changed over the last 149 years, we’ve always continued to evolve, innovate, and embrace new technologies throughout our history. We’re really excited to be working with Scottish Power to look at how we can green our operations and use Scotland’s abundance of natural resources to power our ambitions and ensure that R&W Scott can continue to fly the flag for the Scottish food and drink industry for many more years to come”

John Easton, Executive Chairman

Scottish Power are developing a first-of-a-kind project which will see green hydrogen produced as a clean gas, alongside the use of wind, solar and battery technologies. Then green hydrogen produced can then be distributed for use in industrial settings as well as transportation applications.

“It’s great to be working with R&W Scott to consider how the company can contribute to Scotland’s Net Zero future through creating bespoke green solutions that meet its energy needs. Whether it’s green hydrogen to power industrial processes, renewable electricity to support operations, electric vehicle charging or solar panels, we can really make a difference and support businesses of all sizes – whether they’ve been around as long as R&W Scott or not – to do the same”

Barry Carruthers, Hydrogen Director at ScottishPower
