Major businesses call for easier access to renewable energy | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

Nearly 100 organisations are calling on European governments to make it easier for them to invest in and directly source renewable energy. The companies, including Amazon, E.ON, Facebook, Google, H&M, Lightsource BP, Nike and Siemens Gamesa, have signalled their willingness to do more to tackle climate change in a declaration signed in Amsterdam today. According to WindEurope, corporate renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) worth 6GW have already been signed in the region, with nearly 2GW contracted in 2018 alone.

EcoVadis's insight:

Great sustainable efforts on the part of these major companies. Climate change has been acknowledged for a few decades now. Many companies are making efforts into reducing their carbon footprints, making sure to mitigate climate change.
