The world’s most influential companies, committed to 100% renewable power.
RE100 is a collaborative, global initiative uniting more than 100 influential businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity, working to massively increase demand for - and delivery of - renewable energy.
The private sector accounts for around half of the world’s electricity consumption. Switching this demand to renewables will accelerate the transformation of the global energy market and aid the transition to a low carbon economy.
RE100 shares the compelling business case for renewables, such as greater control over energy costs, increased competitiveness, and delivery on emissions goals. We also showcase business action on renewables and encourage supplier engagement, while working to address barriers that will enable many more companies to reap the benefits of going 100% renewable.
Companies joining RE100 are strongly encouraged to set a public goal to source 100% of their global electricity consumption from renewable sources by a specified year. They disclose their electricity data annually, and RE100 reports on their progress.
Since RE100 was launched at Climate Week NYC 2014, the campaign has continued to gather momentum and is now being rolled out in India and China in addition to Europe and the US. Our members have operations all over the world and in a wide range of industries, from telecommunications and IT to cement and automobile manufacturing.
