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 Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

11 juni 2019: Het gaat goed. Steeds meer grote bedrijven sluiten zich aan bij RE100.

De teller staat inmiddels op 170 bedrijven die zich gaan inzetten om 100% duurzame, hernieuwbare energie te gaan gebruiken.

Atlassian is de eerste deelnemer uit Australië. Nike doet ook mee, evenals Mars en Barclays.

13 maart 2019: Mooi hoor, weer vijf bedrijven die zich gaan inzetten om 100% duurzame, hernieuwbare energie te gaan gebruiken. Als ik de tel goed heb bijgehouden, komt de teller inclusief deze vijf bedrijven op 166 deelnemers aan RE100 te staan.

3M Company, Daito Trust Construction, Konica Minolta, Lloyds Banking Group and Nomura Research Institute zijn de nieuwste vijf bedrijven die deelnemen. Samen verbruiken deze bedrijven maar liefst 4 TWuur aan energie. Mooi dat dat binnenkort allemaal duurzame energie zal zijn.

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.

    Manufacturing Giant 3M Commits To 100% Renewable Power For Global Operations

    Manufacturing and technology giant 3M has become the latest company to join RE100, the global leadership initiative bringing together companies committed to 100% renewable power, led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP.

    The company has committed to source 100% renewable electricity for its global operations by 2050, with an interim goal of 50% by 2025.

    Making the announcement, 3M stated that its global headquarters will now be renewably powered – taking the company to sourcing 30% renewable electricity globally.

    Helen Clarkson, CEO, The Climate Group, said: “By joining RE100 and switching to 100% renewable electricity globally, 3M is building sustainability into its business growth strategy and showing the two go hand-in-hand,” said Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group.

    “Seeing such a large manufacturer commit to ‘go all in’ on renewables to produce sustainable new products is an encouraging step forward. Big brands like this can influence positive action from other companies and customers and accelerate the clean energy transition around the world.”

    Nike Leaps Ahead On Renewable Energy With First European Purchase Agreement

    RE100 member Nike has signed its first European power purchase agreement (PPA), which, once online, will see the company become 75% powered by renewable electricity worldwide.

    RE100 is a corporate leadership initiative on renewable electricity led by The Climate Group, the global non profit focused on accelerating climate action, and is delivered in partnership with CDP.

    The new PPA will see Nike receive a supply of 40 MW of wind power from a new 111 MW project being built by Iberdrola in Navarra, Spain.

    This is the first step the company has taken to cover its European operations with renewable power. It comes a year after Nike signed a PPA to source wind energy in Texas, transferring its North American operations to 100% renewable power.

    Mike Peirce, Corporate Partnerships Director, The Climate Group, said: “We’re thrilled about Nike’s news – this is a powerful illustration of how RE100 members are investing at scale and accelerating the global shift to clean energy.

    “By committing to source electricity from a new wind project in Spain, Nike is growing its own renewables portfolio as well as supporting construction of new projects to power local homes and communities – generating benefits on all sides.”

    Winds of change as Mars goes 100% renewable in Mexico from wind farm in Yucatán

    RE100 member Mars, Inc. is set to be powered by 100% renewable electricity for its operations in Mexico, as the company signs a new power purchase agreement (PPA) for energy from a wind farm in Yucatán.

    Mars was the one of the first members of RE100, the global business initiative on 100% renewable power, led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP. The consumer goods giant set a target to achieve 100% renewable electricity globally by 2040, and its regional operations are already powering ahead on the goal. Nine locations beyond Mexico also run fully on clean power, including Poland, Spain, the US and Lithuania.

    Mars has signed its new PPA with Vive Energía and Envision Energy to supply the electricity required for its six Mexico-based confectionery and pet food facilities. The wind farm is located in Yucatan and will allow Mars Mexico to reduce its GHG emissions by 40% by 2020.

    Yucatán is also a member of the Under2 Coalition – for which The Climate Group acts as Secretariat – alongside 15 other Mexican regions. In last year’s Annual Disclosure Report, Yucatán declared a target to reduce GHG emissions by 40% by 2030, from its 2005 level.

    The state is also tackling the impacts of climate change through collaboration with peers. Yucatán, Quintana Roo and Campeche are all members of the Under2 Coalition and make up the Yucatán Peninsula.

    Atlassian takes lead on 100% renewable power, becomes first Australian tech company to join RE100

    Atlassian has become the first Australian tech company to join the RE100 initiative, targeting 100% renewable electricity for its global operations by 2025.

    Led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP, RE100 now brings together more than 170 of the world’s most influential businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity.

    To meet its RE100 target, Atlassian will work with energy providers to directly purchase renewables for its operations. The company already sources 100% renewable power for its Mountain View office in California.

    Where working directly with suppliers to source renewable energy is not yet possible, Atlassian will purchase Energy Attribute Certificates or Renewable Energy Certificates equivalent to 100% of energy consumption.

    Atlassian will also focus on cutting reducing energy use in its buildings, ensuring the renewable electricity it sources is as efficiently used as possible. This process involves both innovation and behavioral change, such as designing workspaces that reduce the need for artificial light and encourage employees to reduce waste.

    Barclays commits to source 100% renewable electricity for its global operations by 2030

    Barclays, the transatlantic consumer and wholesale bank, has joined RE100 with a commitment to source 100% renewable electricity for its global operations by 2030, with an interim goal of 90% by 2025.

    This will see Barclays l reduce its global emissions by 80% by 2025, once the interim target has been reached.

    To meet its RE100 target, Barclays will focus its efforts on adding additional renewable energy capacity to the market by signing power purchase agreements (PPAs) with energy suppliers. The UK and US will be main focus points, as they represent over 70% of the company’s footprint.

    Al Williams, Barclays Chief Procurement Officer, said: “Companies have a crucial part to play in taking active steps to transition towards a low carbon economy. Our Procurement teams will be supporting our renewable energy strategy to meet the Bank’s RE100 commitments through negotiating our energy purchasing contracts and procuring energy from renewable generation sources.”
