Nikon joins RE100, a global initiative committed to 100% renewable electricity

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation (Nikon) has joined the global initiative RE100, which aims to source 100% renewable energy for electricity used in business activities. Nikon has set a new goal of switching electricity to purchase for Nikon Group’s business activities to 100% renewable energy by FY 2050.

RE100 is an initiative run by The Climate Group, a global non-profit that focuses on activities against climate change, in partnership with the CDP, a global non-profit that drives companies and governments to disclose and manage their environmental impacts. A total of 284 companies have joined the initiative worldwide (as of January 20, 2021).

In order to contribute to the construction of a sustainable society, the Nikon Group has positioned the realization of a decarbonized society as a part of its Long-Term Environmental Vision.
By participating in RE100, the Nikon Group will further utilize renewable energy, accelerate its greenhouse gas reductions, and contribute to spreading use of renewable energy in society.
