Days before Climate Week NYC 2017 gets underway in New York City, The Climate Group, organizer of Climate Week NYC, is announcing that The Estée Lauder Companies, Kellogg Company, DBS Bank Ltd and Clif Bar & Company have today joined its RE100 campaign, run in partnership with CDP, and committed to sourcing 100% renewable electricity across their global operations.
The 106 members of the campaign are now taking the total demand for renewable electricity to around 150 TWh annually – more than enough to power New York State. Further corporate commitments to RE100 are expected during Climate Week NYC. The Climate Group will also launch its upcoming EV100 initiative, to boost the uptake of electric vehicles across the world, and make electric transport the new normal.
