Shaw Invests in Wind Energy Through BHE Renewables

Dalton, GA, February 15, 2024-Shaw Industries announces a virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with BHE Renewables, a Berkshire Hathaway Energy business. Through this agreement, Shaw will invest in renewable energy from BHE Renewables' 200-megawatt Flat Top wind farm in Mills and Comanche counties, Texas, which became operational in 2018.

Shaw’s investment seeks to reduce the company’s operational footprint by approximately 15% annually over the next 15 years, adding to the company’s significant efforts which already have reduced its Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by more than 50% compared to the 2010 baseline.

This latest investment will advance Shaw’s progress toward its goal to achieve net zero

operations (Scope 1 and 2) by 2030. The company’s commercial carpet operations worldwide have been carbon neutral since 2018.
