Vodafone , one of the world’s largest international telecoms companies, has joined RE100 today, committing to purchase 100% of the electricity it uses from renewable sources by 2025.
Led by The Climate Group, in partnership with CDP, RE100 brings together the world’s most influential companies committed to 100% renewable electricity.
Vodafone’s operations are currently powered by 13% renewable electricity, meaning its target to source 100% by 2025 will require a significant shift in the use of clean energy. To reach its goal, the company will look to sign power-purchase agreements which will support the growth of renewable energy markets across the globe.
Vodafone aims to develop on-site renewable systems across its technology centers and base station sites and purchase renewable energy certificates.
100% Renewable by 2025
Sam Kimmins, Head of RE100, The Climate Group, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Vodafone Group to RE100. Setting a target to source 100% renewable power by 2025 demonstrates real leadership and a commitment to be a driving force in the clean energy transition.”
