The step towards a more sustainable future is being translated into the commitment of numerous leading companies around the world to use renewable energy in the development of their activity. This commitment is shown through the RE100 initiative, promoted by The Climate Group in collaboration with CDP, as part of the We Mean Business alliance.

The requirement to be one of the RE100 companies is the commitment to adopt a strategy towards the use of electricity in the company’s operations coming from 100% renewable sources, either from biomass (including biogas), geothermal, solar, hydroelectric, wind…

RE100 companies can achieve this goal through two ways: produce renewable electricity in the facilities themselves or buy renewable electricity from generators and suppliers in the market.

The objectives are monitored annually through the RE100 form or the CDP Climate Change questionnaire. CDP is a global initiative where companies provide information on emissions, energy use, etc., and from which they obtain a score according to their transparency, ambition and leadership in the various topics included in the questionnaire.

Currently there are 140 companies within the initiative, among which are Ikea, Apple, Bankia, BBVA, BMW Group, CaixaBank, Coca Cola European Partners, Danone, Facebook, Google, H&M, Kellogg’s, Lego, Microsoft, Nestlé, Nike, Philips, Starbucks, Telefonica, and Vodafone.

Lavola offers consulting to become part of RE100 due to its experience in CO2 management, energy, and corporate sustainability. In this way, it joins other leading companies in the world committed to renewable energy objectives, and helps to develop a strategy and objectives in accordance with established criteria.
