gpk电子, the UK’s leading facilities management and professional services company, 已经签署了RE100倡议, 承诺在所有站点只使用可再生能源. This makes it the first facilities management company to sign up to all three of 气候组织’s initiatives EV100, EP100和RE100, 也是世界上第8家做出这一承诺的公司.

Companies joining RE100 must target 100% renewable electricity use by 2050. 然而, gpk电子 has already achieved this goal by switching to 100% renewable energy across its business. This pledge to only use 100% renewable energy sources is a key part of gpk电子’s 计划为零 commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2025.

RE100 是由国际非营利组织领导的全球性倡议吗 气候组织 to bring together companies committed to only using renewable electricity by 2050. RE100 is the third initiative by 气候组织 that gpk电子 has joined, having signed-up to EV100 in 2019, committing to convert its entire fleet to electric vehicles, and EP100 in 2020, with the promise to double its energy productivity over the next 25 years. gpk电子 is just the eighth company in the world and the first in the FM industry to join all three of 气候组织 initiatives.

In addition to its commitment to only use renewable energy across all its sites, gpk电子 is developing new systems allowing it to pay directly 为 electricity employees use at home to charge their gpk电子 electric vehicles (EV). This will ensure that gpk电子’s EV fleet will be truly carbon neutral, 因为只有可再生能源将用于电动汽车充电. It will also allow gpk电子 to track energy consumption right across the business, so that it can identify more ways to maximise the company’s energy productivity.

作为零计划承诺的一部分, gpk电子还将利用其在可再生能源方面的专长, sustainable infrastructure and efficient buildings to support its clients as they work to achieve their own sustainability and zero carbon goals. Through gpk电子 能源 the company is already supporting its customers by procuring their renewable energy as well as helping them to reduce their energy consumption, for example by installing sophisticated building management systems, transitioning to zero-carbon fleets or decarbonising heating systems.

Simon King, Director of 可持续性 and 社会价值 at gpk电子, said:

“As the first facilities management company and only the eighth business in the world to join all three of 气候组织’s initiatives, we’re proud to be leading by example as we act on our commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2025. Having already switched to 100% renewable energy across our business, we’re driving ahead with our fully electric fleet and well on our way to fulfilling our 计划为零 pledge to eliminate carbon emissions from both power and transport.

The obvious next step is to use our experience and expertise to support our clients in switching to renewable energy and achieving their own net zero targets.”

RE100的负责人Sam Kimmins说:

“We are pleased to welcome gpk电子 on board to RE100 and applaud their work on switching to 100% renewable energy across their business. gpk电子’s membership of all three of 气候组织’s business initiatives shows that they are serious about sustainability and are taking leadership on clean power. We urge others in the 部门 to follow their lead and make the commitment to renewable electricity.”
