E Ink announced that it has joined RE100, a global renewal energy initiative, and has committed to use 100% renewable energy by 2030. E Ink says it is the first display company to set such an aggressive goal.
In order to achieve E Ink's goal of using 100% green renewable energy in all its global sites by 2030, E Ink will purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) or Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) through global sites to increase the use of renewable energy year over year. E Ink expects to exceed 10% of renewable energy use (RE10) by the end of 2022, 40% of renewable energy use (RE40) by 2025, and to reach RE100 in 2030, with 100% of renewable energy used in global factories.
RE100 is led by the Climate Group and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). Earlier this month the company joined both the Climate Pledge, co-founded by Amazon to commit to becoming net-zero carbon by 2040, and the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
