Once completed, this investment will ensure the production of an annual amount of electricity that will cover 26.4% of the operation of the industrial platform in Iași (by reference to the consumption recorded in the previous year).

The sustainable development of the company to ensure the conservation of resources for future generations and a healthy environment is a main direction of the sustainability strategy of Antibiotice in the year 2023 and in the perspective of the 2030s.

“Also this year, we also proposed the implementation of a set of photovoltaic panels on the company’s buildings, so that the production of green energy that would ensure autonomy from an energy point of view would increase to approximately 35% of the industrial platform’s needs. These two investments will be made with the application of the DNSH – Do No Significant Harm principle, which requires us to build sustainably, in safe and efficient conditions, in such a way that the environment is not affected throughout and in all phases of the project, from design to the decommissioning stage”, stated Sebastian Costea, manager of Strategic Projects.
