Committing to reducing the environmental impact of its own operations, Vestas is joining RE100, a group of global companies dedicated to using 100% renewable energy.
Led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP, RE100 is a collaborative initiative of influential businesses committed to using 100% clean energy in order to accelerate the transformation of the global energy market and aid the transition toward a net-zero-emissions economy.
In addition to providing products that generate clean energy and mitigate the impact of climate change, Vestas already gets 100% of its electricity supply from renewable energy. However, as the company’s operations grow, Vestas’ commitment is to stay at this level by expanding its supply of renewables.
Vestas also plans to work with RE100 and its members to influence the global conversation on how to create supportive policies and frameworks for renewable energy.
“Vestas is already using 100 percent renewable electricity across its own operations to create wind power infrastructure,” says Sam Kimmins, head of RE100 and The Climate Group. “Now, the company is furthering that leadership by joining RE100 and calling for important policy changes that will enable more companies to plug into renewables, too.”
“The private sector is increasingly committed to meeting the challenges of climate change through the use of renewable energy, and so is Vestas,” adds Morten Dyrholm, Vestas group senior vice president of marketing, communications and public affairs. “RE100 underlines our joint efforts to make renewable energy an easy choice for companies – because it’s the right thing to do for the planet and because it makes economic sense.”
