We are proud to announce that Cofoco is the first restaurant chain in Denmark running on 100 % solar energy.
In a new type of partnership with solar energy company Better Energy, Cofoco is now co-owners of a solar park, that produces enough energy to cover our needs both now and with future growth of the company. We have invested tens of millions of kroners in a solar park the size of 9 football fields that produces 30 % more energy than we rely on in Cofoco, meaning that we achieve a negative CO2 impact on the environment.
By investing in solar energy we minimize the negative impact which running a company that services more than 400.000 guests every year has on the environment. At the same time, we want to show our commitment to helping secure a sustainable future for Denmark.
The solar panels are located on large green fields just outside of the town Nees in the Northwestern part of Jutland. The fields offer perfect conditions for organic farming as no chemicals or pesticides are used on vegetation or for maintenance of the solar panels. This also helps preserve the local ground water. The vegetation is maintained by ducks and geese that grasses on the fields, and we look forward to hopefully serve these in our restaurants at the end of the year.
So, next time you visit one of our restaurants or buy a Cofoco meal, you are also supporting a greener and more sustainable future for Denmark.
