Corporate Clean Energy Procurement: Best Practices & Emerging Trends

Corporate Clean Energy Procurement: Best Practices & Emerging Trends
Wednesday, July 20, 2016
9 AM Pacific/12 PM Eastern

Earlier this year Clean Edge released its inaugural universe of public companies leading the transition to a clean-energy economy. Thirty-four corporates made the initial cut, including Nike, Facebook, Apple, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, and Walmart. In July, Clean Edge will announce its updated universe, including the addition of a number of new corporations to the list. 

The trend toward corporate leadership in clean-energy procurement is expanding rapidly with dozens of multinationals reaching near 100% clean-energy procurement for their operational needs. In 2015, for the first time ever, corporate procurement of wind energy was led by corporations making direct purchases (through PPAs) rather than via contracts with utilities. Earlier this year, a number of leading NGOs launched the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) to bring together the various initiatives supporting companies that are on a pathway to powering their operations with clean energy. And corporate procurement, of distributed and community-scale projects, is playing a significant role as well. 

Join us for an interactive discussion on the latest trends as corporates play an increasingly important role as purchasers of utility-scale, community-based, and distributed (on-site) clean-energy generated electricity. 

In this webinar you will: 
• Access a new summary infographic/briefing with datasets, current trends, and best practices covering corporate clean-energy activities
• Dive into how corporates and progressing in their renewables efforts and the key drivers behind them 
• Learn about the updated group of Clean Edge's Corporate Clean Energy Leaders universe

About the Corporate Clean Energy Leaders Universe:

Corporate Clean Energy Leaders Universe

In early 2016, Clean Edge released the inaugural universe of Corporate Clean Energy Leaders, recognizing corporations that are leading the way in establishing renewable electricity and low-carbon commitments, deploying renewable energy, and investing in clean-tech deployment. As more companies transition from fossil fuels to clean energy, the Corporate Clean Energy Leaders universe provides a key barometer of innovation, best practices, and leadership.
