KPN

KPN believes it is important to address climate change. Switching to renewable energy consumption is one way it can achieve this, although reducing energy consumption is the main priority.

Goal

KPN has already reached its RE100 goal to become 100% powered by renewable energy. This helped the company to reach its ambition to become "climate neutral" by 2015.
