The RE100: World’s Most Influential Companies Are Going for 100% Renewable Energy

Geschreven op 15-10-2015 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Energie en Besparing Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

27 september 2018: Hup, weer zeven bedrijven erbij die zich gaan inzetten om 100% duurzame, hernieuwbare energie te gaan gebruiken. De teller komt daarmee op 152 deelnemende bedrijven te staan.

Onder de zeven nieuwe bedrijven ook de eerste bedrijven uit Latijns-Amerika: de grootste bakkerij ter wereld Grupo Bimbo doet mee. Het eerste bedijf uit Turkije dat mee gaat doen is de Gürmen Group, bekend van mannenkleding. Nieuw zijn Decathlon uit Frankrijk, Mahindra Holidays & Resorts uit Indië, Fuyo General Lease uit Japan, het Amerikaanse Lyft, and TRIDL cosmetica uit Taiwan.

21 september 2018: Mooi hoor. Het aantal bedrijven dat meedoet aan het RE100 initiatief van de Climate Group blijft stijgen. De teller staat inmiddels gestegen op 145 grote bedrijven sinds de lancering in 2014 tijdens de Climate Week NYC.

21 september 2017: Mooi hoor. Het aantal bedrijven dat meedoet aan het RE100 initiatief van de Climate Group is inmiddels gestegen naar 110 grote bedrijven sinds de lancering in 2014 tijdens de Climate Week NYC.

15 oktober 2015: Negen van de grootste bedrijven ter wereld beloven volledig over te schakelen op elektriciteit uit hernieuwbare bronnen zoals wind- en zonne-energie.

Onder de negen bedrijven zijn namen als Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, Goldman Sachs, Nike, Starbucks en Walmart. Ze sluiten zich aan bij de RE100-campagne die eerder grote bedrijven als Ikea, DSM, H&M, KPN, Unilever, Philips en Nestlé kon overtuigen om voor 100 procent schone elektriciteit te gaan.

De negen bedrijven beloven om al hun elektriciteit uit hernieuwbare energiebronnen zoals zon en wind te halen, maar doen dat niet allemaal even snel. Goldman Sachs belooft dat tegen 2020 te doen, Nike pas tegen 2025.

RE100 is a global initiative to engage, support and showcase influential companies committed to using 100% renewable power. It is led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP, and is supported by the We Mean Business coalition.

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.

At this moment 38 companies have joined RE100 since it was launched at Climate Week NYC in 2014. These are Alstria; Autodesk; Aviva; BT Group; Commerzbank; DSM; Elion Resources Group; Formula E; Givaudan; Goldman Sachs; H&M; IKEA Group; Infosys; Johnson & Johnson; J. Safra Sarasin; Kingspan; KPN; Land Securities; Marks & Spencer; Mars, Incorporated; Nestlé; Nike, Inc.; Philips; Procter & Gamble; Proximus; RELX Group; Salesforce; SAP; SGS; Starbucks; Steelcase; Swiss Re; UBS; Unilever; Vaisala; Voya Financial; Walmart and YOOX Group.

    Tata Motors Joins RE100 Initiative

    India’s largest automobile manufacturer and part of the famous Tata conglomerate, Tata Motors has joined the RE100 initiative.

    By joining the RE100 initiative Tata Motors has committed to source 100% of its electricity needs from renewable energy sources — an impressive task, considering at present, the company only acquires around 8% of its electricity demand from renewable energy.

    The Climate Group has announced a new collaboration with the Japan Climate Leaders Partnership (Japan-CLP), to engage leading Japanese businesses in their global corporate campaigns on renewable power, energy productivity and electric mobility.

    Japan-CLP will support the RE100 and EP100 initiatives – which bring together the world’s most influential companies committed to 100% clean electricity and doubling energy productivity respectively – and the soon to be launched EV100 campaign.

    The announcement of the new partnership comes just days after RE100 confirmed its first Japanese member, Ricoh Company Ltd., which has set the goal of sourcing 100% renewable electricity for its global operations by 2050.
