Breakfast cereal maker Kellogg, cosmetics firm Estee Lauder and Singapore-based DBS Bank are among the latest companies to commit to sourcing all their electricity from renewable sources.

Along with food company Clif Bar, the businesses have signed-up to the RE100 campaign, which is run by The Climate Group and carbon monitoring charity CDP.

Together, the 106 companies signed up to the campaign have taken global demand for renewables to around 150TWh a year.

The organisations’ next “EV100” campaign will focus on encouraging the use of electric vehicles.

‘Renewable power makes business sense’

Helen Clarkson, Chief Executive at The Climate Group, said: “By joining our campaigns, corporates like The Estée Lauder Companies, Kellogg, DBS Bank and Clif Bar are demonstrating the highest level of commitment to climate action.

“But they’re not doing it out of the goodness of their hearts – renewable power makes business sense, and corporate leadership is absolutely key to delivering on the Paris Agreement at speed.”

The new members of the campaign were unveiled as part of Climate Week in New York.
