Companies committed to renewable electricity perform financially better than other companies (report from RE100, CapGemini – September 2018)

The RE100 report with Capgemini Invent, which draws on 2016-17 data from a sample of 3,500 companies, shows RE100 businesses (committed to 100% renewable electricity) consistently perform better than non-members on two key financial indicators: net profit margin and EBIT margin (Earnings Before Interests and Taxes).

The difference is significant (up to 7.7 percentage points), and is true across all sectors (most prominently for IT, telecommunications, construction and real estate).

The report comes from Climate Week NYC in September 2018 where for the 10th year running The Climate Group is convening business and government leaders from around the world to advance climate action.
