Starbucks and nine other companies commit to sourcing 100% renewable electricity

Nine new leading companies join the likes of Ikea and M&S as part of the RE100 global campaign for low-carbon business. This global campaign encourages businesses to source energy from 100% renewable sources.

The companies who have now committed to doing so (although the time periods for achieving the new target varies by company) are:  Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, Goldman Sachs, Nike, Starbucks, Salesforce, Steelcase, Voya Financial and Walmart. In total, 36 companies have now joined RE100 since its launch in 2014.

In addition to RE100 the UN has launched a new initiative, Climate Neutral Now, which is designed to encourage more firms and individuals to offset their emissions using UN-approved carbon credits.
