Epson pledges to use renewable electricity


Epson is now part of the RE100, a global initiative that encourages top companies to transition to using renewable energy. As Epson joins the initiative, RE100 also announced it has now 300 member organisations who are committed to sustainability.

Epson joins RE100, a global initiative that brings together the world’s most influential businesses driving the transition to renewable electricity.

Last March 2021, Epson announced its worldwide group sites will source its electricity from renewable sources by 2023.

To address global interest in societal issues such as the environment and energy, the Paris Agreement established “decarbonisation targets.” Epson, for its part, will use renewable electricity, and it has made plans and implemented measures to expand its use over the long term. This was created to achieve FY2025 science-based targets.

This news coincides with the RE100 announcement, “300 moment”, which brings the total member organisations to exactly 300. Epson believes that “joining other environmental leaders in RE100 illustrates its commitment to achieving SDG 7 Affordable and Clean Energy, and SDG 13 Climate Action. “

Yasunori Ogawa, Epson global president, says the company is proud to join RE100 at this special time. “Joining this important initiative not only expresses our strong commitment to renewable electricity and to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement, but encourages our customers and business partners to also make the switch. We hope to use this opportunity to work with partners worldwide to help them achieve this.”

Aleksandra Klassen, Senior Impact Manager RE100, The Climate Group says: “I am delighted to welcome Epson to RE100. By committing to renewable electricity, Epson joins over 50 Japanese companies driving market change. This sends a powerful message that renewable electricity makes good business sense, and we encourage others to follow.”

She concludes: “To benefit from the growing corporate investment opportunity, we urge the government to remove barriers and match business ambition by more than doubling the national renewable energy target.”
