VMware is proud to be a part of the RE100; a global collaboration comprised of influential businesses that are committed to using 100 percent renewable electricity in partnership with The Climate Group and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). Today, the initiative is celebrating the addition of its 100th member organization.

Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, congratulated members for their commitment to sustainability. 
“Congratulations to all the companies, and all the individuals within those companies, who have joined the journey to a low carbon, resilient and dynamic future.

“This would not be happening without leadership—and not just at the level of the CEO or a company board. It has been a huge collective effort of people at all levels from those responsible for the business energy needs or the running of manufacturing facilities to those managing retail outlets or working in finance and purchasing.

“Moreover this ‘100 moment’ is part of an alliance of inspiring actions flourishing across the globe by corporations but also cities, regions, states, territories, investors and citizens—actions supporting and empowering governments to go further and faster with the Paris Climate Change Agreement.”

Officially launched at Climate Week NYC last year, VMware joins some of the most influential companies committed to accelerating the transformation of the global energy market and aid the transition toward a low carbon economy.
