RE100 won the 'Pioneer' award at the British Renewable Energy Awards 2016 - recognized for its efforts to accelerate the corporate take up of renewable energy through commitments to renewable power and creating a pathway that others can follow. http://there100.org/news/14221867
Monitoring and Impacts
|Function of initiative||Implementation, Capacity building, Political dialogue|
|Activity of initiative||Goal setting (ex-ante), Training and education, Advocacy|
Goal setting (ex-ante) — Total Mitigation
|Goals|| By 2020 it will be the ‘norm’ for all businesses to set a 100% renewable power goal.
In 2017 we are increasing the breadth and depth of the RE100 campaign. There will be a greater focus of work in India and China and we will be looking at influencing supply chains. We continue to work with a number of partner organizations (e.g. ShareAction) to accelerate recruitment and help members to reach their 100% renewable electricity goals (e.g. WBCSD Lctpi, Rocky Mountain Institute’s Business Renewables Center).

|How will goals be achieved|
|Have you changed or strenghtened your goals|
|Progress towards the goals||RE100 has grown from 13 companies in 2014 to 87 members as of January 2017. Together they are creating demand for over 107 TWh of renewable electricity. There are now several members based in India and China, and a number of companies from heavy industry such as automobile and cement manufacturing. RE100 is providing a series of knowledge-sharing and profiling opportunities for members. RE100 is demonstrating the business case for renewable power and has worked to influence EU policy to help companies access renewable energy in Europe.|
|How are you tracking progress of your initiative|| Members are encouraged to report their electricity and renewable electricity use on an annual basis to CDP. Progress towards RE100 goals is tracked and reported in the RE100 Annual Report: http://there100.org/reports-briefings.
RE100 does not track the carbon savings of companies as they work towards their 100% renewable power targets, rather data on electricity consumption and use of renewables (including different options deployed and where). Stakeholders committed: Number of companies committed increased from 13 in 2014 to 129 in 2018. Mitigation, renewable energy: The 129 members consumed 159 TWh of renewable energy in 2017.
We highlight how much money our members invest in renewable power and climate change initiatives – for example Goldman Sachs http://there100.org/goldman-sachs set a 10-year target to deploy $40 billion of capital in financing and investment to scale-up clean energy globally. We also showcase savings being made by businesses through renewable energy - for example General Motors is saving $5 million annually http://there100.org/news/14230419.
|Available reporting|| Company data is made available in the RE100 Annual Report, http://there100.org/reports-briefings, including progress towards achieving 100% renewable power and the different approaches towards renewables that companies are taking.
Company achievements are published as news stories on both the RE100 website and The Climate Group website, and included in the monthly RE100 e-newsletter that is sent to both campaign participants as well as prospect companies and partner organizations. Stories are shared on both the RE100 and The Climate Group Twitter handles, with more than 3,000 and 100,000 followers respectively.
