HEFEI, China, May 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, today announced that it has joined RE100, a group of businesses committed to the use of renewable power, to switch its electricity used globally in its manufacturing and operations to 100% renewable energy by 2028.
RE100 is a fantastic lever to achieve 100% renewable
RE100 is led by The Climate Group, an intentional NPO focused on accelerating climate action, in partnership with CDP. The initiative works to increase corporate demand for – and in turn supply of – renewable energy. To join RE100, companies must set a public goal to source 100% of its global electricity consumption from renewable sources by 2050 and disclose electricity data annually, taking more responsibility for global low-carbon economy development and climate goals.
More than 200 of the world's largest companies have made commitments under the initiative, including Apple, Google, Microsoft and Facebook.
100% renewable is not a new concept but a reality for Sungrow
As part of its CSR efforts, Sungrow has committed to creating a "Green mission, better life" by exploring a variety of ways to increase energy efficiency and renewable energy use. In addition to energy-saving activities, the company promoted 100% utilization of renewable energy by using electric buses for staff transit and installing rooftop PV systems at its factories which was granted as the first batch of National Standard for Green Factories in China.
As one of the most compelling renewable energy players, sustainability is a commitment rooted in Sungrow's DNA. By the end of 2019, its accumulative inverters shipments reached 100GW that is equivalent to eliminating 103 million tons of carbon dioxide, demonstrating Sungrow's continued efforts to achieve sustainability and to lead the industry in minimizing carbon footprint.
