Market Leaders have accepted the obligation to lead in this energy transition.
Google, Apple and Amazon and a growing number of their Fortune 500 peers are leading this transition, demonstrating that investing in renewable energy is not just a moral imperative, it’s a smart business decision. Your company can also take a leading role and have a competitive advantage by sourcing renewable energy.

There are various opportunities for companies of all sizes when sourcing renewable energy. Watch this film to find out which solutions may be right for you.
No matter the size of your organization, there are hurdles to overcome for successful corporate renewable procurement, navigating complex energy markets and regulations, considering the technology options, and gaining buy-in within your organization. Even so, these obstacles have been navigated by many market leaders and organizations, and there are many more looking for solutions to provide access for corporations of all sizes.
One recent example is an innovative renewable energy aggregation deal, where five corporations – Bloomberg, Cox Enterprises, Gap Inc., Salesforce and Workday – collectively procured smaller, equal-sized pieces of a large project. Working collectively as an anchor tenant gave them buying power of a large corporation, while at the same time executing in record time.
Options abound in moving your company towards renewable energy procurement. There has never been a better time to move to sustainable energy sources.
It's necessary for businesses to take control of their energy use and have an actionable energy strategy in place whether that includes goals for resilience measures, emissions targets, or increased onsite generation.
