Nokia joins RE100 to shift to renewable energy


Finnish telecommunications vendor Nokia has joined RE100, a global initiative led by the Climate Group in partnership with non-profit organisation CDP, which brings together the world’s influential businesses to commit to 100% renewable electricity.

Nokia has reported to the CDP for more than 10 years, and recently, the telecommunications vendor earned an A- score. It works with the organisation to track its supply chain emissions and climate targets.

Nokia’s participation in the RE100 initiative signifies its commitment to reduce emissions from its own operations by moving to 100% renewable electricity by 2025.

This also underscores Nokia’s leadership in renewable energy adoption in its operation and use its position in the ICT value chain to encourage suppliers and customers to take similar steps and shift to sustainable electricity.

Additionally, in line with the Science Based Targets initiative’s (SBTi) temperature target of 1.5°C, Nokia will ramp its efforts to focus on reducing its emissions by 50% across its value chain, including its own operations, products in use, logistics, and final assembly supplier factories by 2030.

"Joining the RE100 is just one part of our decarbonisation strategy. We’re working with our suppliers and customers to reduce emissions across our value chain and continually innovating to improve the energy efficiency of our technologies so we can make our own and other industries more sustainable,” says Nokia chief corporate officer Melissa Schoeb.

“By committing to 100% renewable electricity, Nokia is taking an important step forward on improving its sustainability journey and joins over 340 of the world’s leading companies committed to driving market change. We encourage others to follow suit,” says Climate Group head of RE100 Sam Kimmins.

While today’s commitment focuses on Scope 2 emissions, Nokia says it continues to work on reducing its Scope 1 and 3 emissions.

Nokia says it is working on reducing product use time emissions in line with its SBTi commitment by continually improving energy efficiency more widely across its product portfolio.

Nokia claims it has been increasing its share of renewable electricity for several years now. Its usage across the business in 2020 was 39% and it is on track to reach the 45% target for 2021. Nokia wants to achieve 100% by 2025.
