The world’s most influential companies are committing to 100% renewable power
We're working to accelerate the scale-up of renewable power to help us deliver a better, healthier and more sustainable world for what will soon be 9 billion people.
Businesses are already taking bold and ambitious action to help create the transformative change we need to drive the clean energy revolution. One of the ways they are doing this is by switching to renewable power.
This is a smart business decision. It can help manage fluctuating energy costs, provide energy security, improve reputation and deliver carbon emission reduction goals. It also shows business leadership on climate change – crucial alongside robust government policy that boosts confidence and enables long-term investments.
Convened by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP, RE100 is an ambitious global initiative to engage, support and showcase influential companies committed to using 100% renewable power. Companies gain a better understanding of the advantages of being 100% renewable, and benefit from peer-to-peer learning as well as greater public recognition of their ambitions and achievements as they work towards their goals.
