    The Estée Lauder Companies, Kellogg Company, DBS Bank and Clif Bar & Company are the latest global players to join the RE100 campaign.

    Spearheaded by The Climate Group, and run in partnership with CDP, the campaign sees major organisations commit 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.

    CEO Helen Clarkson said: “By joining our campaigns, corporates like The Estée Lauder Companies, Kellogg, DBS Bank and Clif Bar are demonstrating the highest level of commitment to climate action and setting an example.

    “But they’re not doing it out of the goodness of their hearts – renewable power makes business sense, and corporate leadership is absolutely key to delivering on the Paris Agreement at speed.”

    RE100 recently celebrated its 100 members milestone, drawing praise from global climate leaders including Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and former US Vice President Al Gore.
