General Mills has taken another step toward its climate goal with the signing of a virtual 15-year power purchase agreement with Renewable Energy Systems (RES) for 100MW of its Cactus Flats wind project.

The wind project will produce renewable energy credits for General Mills that can be applied toward the company's greenhouse gas emission reduction goals. General Mills' investment will help fund the construction of the 150MW Cactus Flats wind project being developed in Concho County, Texas by RES. The project's renewable energy credits will enable General Mills to reduce its Scope 2 emissions as part of its target of sustainable emission levels across its global value chain by 2050.
