Lear Corporation, a global leader in automotive technology in seating and e-systems, today announced it has joined Climate Group’s RE100, a global renewable electricity initiative that includes more than 370 major companies.

RE100 members commit to source 100% of the electricity used in their global operations from electricity produced from renewable sources.

By integrating the Energy Efficiency Playbook and Renewable Energy Strategy across the company, Lear plans to achieve 100% renewable energy for the electrical power consumed in its global locations by 2030.

Lear’s operations in Germany, Poland and the United Kingdom are currently meeting target. In addition, the company operates six on-site solar installations in Europe, South America and Asia, with a seventh installation to be announced later this year.

Lear will use a combination of methods to source and generate renewable electricity for its remaining global operations. The type of power source depends on geographic location, applicable laws 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 Jozef Chrzanowski, Lear’s Vice President of Renewable Energy and Sustainability. “We are excited to join RE100 and take the next step towards a carbon neutral future.”

“Lear’s commitment to 100% renewable electricity worldwide by 2030 demonstrates its leadership in the energy transition,” said Climate Group director of energy Sam Kimmins. “Together, our RE100 members represent a powerful force for positive change, and we encourage all large-scale companies to join us.”

RE100 aims to accelerate the change to carbon-free networks by 2040.
