RE100 is a global initiative bringing together the world’s most influential businesses driving the transition to 100% renewable electricity.
Led by the Climate Group and in partnership with CDP, our mission is to accelerate change towards zero carbon grids at scale.
Companies in the commercial and industrial sector account for around half of the world’s end-of-use of electricity. We're switching this demand to renewable electricity.
International work and partnerships
Our members have operations all over the world and in a wide range of industries, from telecommunications and retail to cement and automobile manufacturing. Since RE100 was launched at Climate Week NYC 2014, the initiative has expanded across Europe, North America, and the Asia-Pacific, and we are seeing rapid growth in Japan.
We partner with select organisations in key growth geographies to grow the membership and drive market change. We provide companies with access to peer-learning, policy support, and local market insight.
To achieve zero carbon electricity grids by 2040, companies need to be able to source 100% renewable electricity at reasonable cost. We’re addressing the market and policy barriers preventing companies from sourcing renewables by:
- Advocating for change at a global level. Our six policy measures support corporate sourcing of renewable electricity globally, according to RE100 member companies
- Advocating for change at a local level. We’re working with our partners and members to leverage corporate commitment and influence policies in markets with little or no access to renewable electricity
Our strategy and performance is overseen by the RE100 Project Board, comprising representatives from both the Climate Group and CDP.
