Lear Commits to Adding Renewable Electricity
Lear Corporation, a global automotive technology company, announced it joined Climate Group's RE100, a global renewable electricity initiative that includes over 370 major companies.
The RE100 members commit to sourcing 100% of the electricity used across their global operations with electricity produced from renewable sources.
Lear's operations in Germany, Poland, and the United Kingdom currently meet the goal. In addition, the company is operating six on-site solar installations in Europe, South America, and Asia with a seventh installation planned to be announced later this year.
The company will use a combination of methods to procure and generate renewable electricity for its remaining global sites. The type of power source will depend on geographical location, applicable legislation, and government regulations.
"Lear's strategy, aligned with RE100 and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, illustrates our commitment to industry collaboration and building a more sustainable global economy," said Lear Vice President of Renewable Energy and Sustainability Jozef Chrzanowski in a statement. "We are excited to become a member of RE100 and take another step towards a carbon neutral future."
