Private Sector Commitments

96 Commitments made by the Private Sector on Sustainable Energy, via the Sustainable Energy for All initiative

 

To continue to encourage renewable energy options, we have made a new energy goal to reduce non-renewable energy use by 10% per adjusted dollar revenue by 2020 compared to a baseline of 2010. We have set a milestone of 3% reduction by 2015. Increase annual revenue by at least $2 billion from products that create energy efficiency and/or significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We estimate these products will contribute at least 40 million tons of additional CO2 equivalent reductions by our customers and consumers.
