Anheuser-Busch InBev has just announced their commitment to becoming 100% dependent on renewable energy sources by 2025.
75% to 85% of the electricity is planned to be provided through direct power purchasing agreements, while the rest is expected to come from on-site power sources like solar panels.
The shift was made in solidarity with the RE100, a global initiative of businesses that have committed to using 100% renewable electricity in accordance with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Other such corporate giants that have joined the RE100 include IKEA, Adobe, Apple, Bank of America, Coca-Cola, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Nike.
Anheuser-Busch InBev has already begun the process by signing a power agreement between Iberdrola and their largest brewery based in Mexico for 490 gigawatt-hours per year.
“Climate change has profound implications for our company and for the communities where we live and work,” said AB InBev CEO Carlos Brito in a statement. “Cutting back on fossil fuels is good for the environment and good for business, and we are committed to helping drive positive change. We have the opportunity to play a leading role in the battle against climate change by purchasing energy in a more sustainable way.”
