Nexans joins RE100Dec 15, 2020
Paris, December 15, 2020 – Nexans joins the Climate Group's RE100 initiative and is committed to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2030. RE100 is a global initiative bringing together the world's most influential companies leading the transition to 100% renewable electricity.
In line with the Paris agreements (COP21), which set a limit of 1.5°C warming by 2030, Nexans has unveiled its roadmap towards carbon neutrality. As part of this plan, the Group is aiming for an average annual reduction of 4.2% in its greenhouse gas emissions (in particular on scopes 1 and 2 ) and plans, among other things, to use renewable energy through local production or the purchase of decarbonated energy for all sites, and that 100% of R&D projects will be dedicated to energy transition and energy efficiency.
“ Our ambition is to contribute to the energy transition by being a player in the sustainable electrification of
the world. More than a strategic axis, renewable energy is part of our purpose: "Electrify the future". Joining the RE100 demonstrates Nexans’ commitment to bring a sustainable future for all. ”
