What is RE100? It means committing to 100% reneweable energy, and many businesses and cities across the world are leading the way. It's happening, people. Get on board while you can.


The world’s most influential companies, committed to 100% renewable power.
RE100 is a collaborative, global initiative of 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 and showcases business action, while working with others to address barriers and develop transparent reporting mechanisms.
RE100 is brought to you by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP, as part of the We Mean Business coalition.
Companies joining RE100 are encouraged to set a public goal to procure 100% of their electricity from renewable sources of energy by a specified year.
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.
Companies have joined from all over the world and from a wide range of industrial sectors - from telecommunications and IT to retail and food.
