The emissions reduction will be achieved with the launch by Bacardi of a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) system next year at its Puerto Rican distillery, replacing heavy fuel oil with propane gas, a cleaner energy solution. The company stated that the reduction represents a 14% cut in the total emissions globally for family-owned Bacardi, a significant step towards the 50% reduction the company is aiming to achieve globally by 2025.
