Renewable Energy Buyers’ Alliance
The Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance is a partnership between World Resources Institute, Business for Social Responsibility, Rocky Mountain Institute, and the World Wildlife Fund. The partnership aims to accelerate the shift to clean energy by helping corporations purchase 60GW of additional renewable energy in the U.S. by 2025. It does so by convening over 100 corporate customers, suppliers and policymaker to identify barriers to buying renewable energy and develop solutions that meet rapidly growing voluntary demand.
Special Clean Power Council
The Special Clean Power Council is a two-year initiative comprised of leading U.S. electric utilities and an array of their major commercial and industrial customers. The group drives innovation in the utility sector by working collaboratively to achieve an efficient economic transition to clean energy resources while growing businesses across the United States.
Science Based Targets
A growing number of companies see the benefits of increasing the ambition of reduction efforts for their operations and engaging with their value chain to drive significant reductions. Over 300 companies worldwide have committed to set Greenhouse Gas emissions reduction targets in line with a 2°C decarbonization pathway, in alignment with the goals set out in the Paris Agreement. 57 of them are U.S.-based companies, including 35 Fortune 500 companies, who are looking to slash emissions from internal operations and their value chain.
The Science Based Targets initiative, jointly led by World Resources Institute, CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, and the World Wildlife Fund, mobilizes companies to set science-based targets as a powerful way to create competitive advantage in the transition to a low-carbon economy.
