Japanese electronics giant Fujitsu has announced that it has committed to sourcing 100 per cent renewable energy across all its locations by 2050, a move solidified by its decision last week to join the Climate Group’s RE100 initiative. The global movement among corporations towards sourcing 100 per cent of their electricity needs from renewable energy has been increasing steadily for several years now, helped in part by the work of the RE100, a global initiative run by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) that brings together and supports businesses committing to 100 per cent renewable energy. As of writing there are 140 companies committed to the RE100 initiative, with targets varying between 100 per cent renewable energy by 2020 and 2050.
