About us

RE100 is the global corporate renewable energy initiative bringing together hundreds of large and ambitious businesses committed to 100% renewable electricity.

Led by Climate Group, our mission is to accelerate change towards zero carbon grids at scale. RE100 was established in partnership with CDP.

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.

Policy engagement

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 messages 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 governance

Our strategy and performance is overseen by the RE100 Project Board, comprising representatives from both Climate Group and CDP. 

The Board is advised by two groups: the RE100 Advisory Committee and the Technical Advisory Group (TAG)
