Clean Edge adds 4 newcomers to list of 37 corporate clean energy leaders
Clean tech research and advisory firm Clean Edge on July 12 updated its list of corporate clean energy leaders to include four new companies: Advanced Micro Devices Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., VF Corp. and Wells Fargo and Co.
The list, Clean Edge said, is intended to recognizing corporations that are leading the way in establishing renewable electricity commitments, deploying clean energy and investing in clean-tech deployment. One company, Keurig Green Mountain, was removed from the list as it was taken private in an acquisition.
The other companies on the list, in alphabetical order, are: Adobe Systems Inc., Apple Inc., AT&T Inc., Autodesk Inc., Becton Dickinson and Co., Biogen Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., EMC Corp., Equinix Inc., Facebook Inc., FedEx Corp., General Motors Co., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Google, Herman Miller Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., Intel Corp., Interface Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Kohl’s Corp., Microsoft Corp., Nike Inc., Procter & Gamble Co., Rackspace Inc., Salesforce.com, Staples Inc., Starbucks Corp., Steelcase, Target Corp., Verizon Wireless, Voya Financial, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Whole Foods Market Inc. and Workday Inc.
To qualify for placement on the list, companies needed to meet at least two of Clean Edge's tracked criteria and also meet minimum score thresholds. Specific criteria used in developing the leaders list included, but were not limited to: companies that get 25% or more of their current electricity from renewables; investment organizations that have mobilized at least $25 billion in clean-energy/clean-tech deployment; companies that have a stated goal of getting 100% of their total electricity from renewables; and the presence of a chief sustainability officer.
