Shell Energy Philippines Forges Renewable Energy Supply Deals with Lucio Tan Group of Companies


Shell Energy Philippines Inc. (SEPH) forged partnerships with various companies within the Lucio Tan Group of Companies, powering the operations of its companies such as PMFTC, Inc., Asia Brewery, Inc (ABI) and Lufthansa Technik Philippines (a joint venture with Lufthansa Technik AG) with renewable energy (RE).

These collaborations signal SEPH’s expansion in supplying alternative sources of energy to major industries, while business leaders and iconic brands take a significant step in adopting sustainability in their production and supply chain processes.

SEPH General Manager and President Bernd Krukenberg acknowledged, “Establishing strategic partnerships with the Lucio Tan Group of Companies is an opportunity for both our organizations to be on the frontline in building up the renewable power business on a national and global scale.”  He added, “Energy is really a big field, and at Shell, we are driven to serve our public by being at the forefront of the energy transition. We’re doing this around the world, and we’re extremely happy that we are also able to do so in the Philippines.”

SEPH is a retail electricity supplier under the Shell companies in the Philippines offering competitive and environment-friendly energy solutions to industrial and commercial customers in the Philippines. As a partner in nation-building, it is committed to powering the country’s progress by providing cleaner, flexible, and innovative energy solutions to protect the environment critical to a more sustainable and zero-carbon future.

Joint efforts towards energy transitions in the country further accelerate as SEPH equips its partners in getting the electricity they need and curbing their carbon emissions by shifting to RE. Meanwhile, all the sustainability efforts that the Lucio Tan Group of Companies are implementing are aligned with SEPH’s sustainability goals as well as their parent firm’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.

SEPH will supply 15 megawatts of renewable energy to ABI’s manufacturing facilities in Luzon. The RE contract is one way to reduce ABI’s carbon footprint. ABI’s other sustainability efforts include the recycling of broken or waste glass to produce new glass bottles and the manufacturing of bottles using lahar which comes from the 1990 Mt. Pinatubo eruption.

PMFTC’s Batangas and Marikina plants have switched to renewable power moving forward in its journey towards sustainability. PMFTC Director of Manufacturing Nicolas Souvlakis said of the partnership with SEPH: “We’re very happy to enter into a relationship with SEPH. I’m really looking forward to this new relationship not only in terms of being an electricity provider. We can partner in certain projects, share our experience, benefit as well from their expertise, and continuously make our business more sustainable”, he said. 

Lufthansa Technik Philippines, its joint venture MRO, is the latest addition to the Lucio Tan Group of Companies that have forged partnerships with SEPH to power up their existing facility in Villamor air base.

In addition to SEPH’s inked agreements with the said Lucio Tan Group of Companies, other sister companies Philippine Airlines, Philippine National Bank and Eton Properties Philippines, Inc. are also set to join SEPH’s growing list of renewable energy partners which is currently at 59.
