Global software and engineering company Emerson has joined RE100, an international initiative dedicated to replacing all electricity generated by fossil fuels with 100% renewable energy.
This is Emerson’s new step toward its goal of source 100% renewable energy by 2030.
To meet its 2030 climate goal, Emerson will use a wide range of renewable energy sources, including solar, wind, geothermal, and hydropower, and it expects to obtain 25% of its worldwide electricity needs from renewable sources in 2022.
Additionally, the firm has installed on-site renewable electricity generation systems at a few facilities across the globe and will continue to expand deployment of these systems.
Mike Train, Emerson’s chief sustainability officer, said in a press release “our engagement with RE100 enhances Emerson’s ability to drive further investment in renewable electricity and support the overall decarbonization of the grid in the key markets we operate in, such as the U.S., Mexico, Europe, China, and India.”
Emerson started its Energy Sourcing Committee in 2021 to boost the usage and purchase of renewable electricity. The company also collaborates with third-party energy experts who are involved in the energy markets to explore more opportunities.
