TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL) today announced it has joined the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA), which was founded in March of 2019 with support from some of the country's largest companies, to help large energy buyers drive the transition towards a zero-carbon energy system with a viable path for every organization to procure clean energy.
REBA is an alliance of large clean energy buyers, energy providers, and service providers that is unlocking the marketplace by accelerating the ability for energy buyers to procure renewable energy through educational tools and resources; innovating solutions to regulatory, policy, and technological market barriers; and activating each member of the REBA community so its collective impact is greater than individual parts. Through its efforts, REBA intends to bring more than 60 gigawatts of renewables online in the United States by 2025.
"Welltower is proud to join REBA and the largest group of corporate renewable energy buyers in the United States," said Thomas J. DeRosa, Welltower Chairman and CEO. "We fully endorse the Alliance's commitment to create a resilient carbon-free energy system where every organization has an easy and cost-effective path to buying renewable energy. Welltower is committed to doing its part to help meet that goal."
"We welcome Welltower to the REBA community," said Miranda Ballentine, REBA CEO. "Reducing the carbon footprint of the built environment is more critical now than ever before. Insights from experienced energy buyers, like Welltower, shared across the community will enable other REITs to take steps to successfully implement sustainability strategies that reduce emissions across the sector."
