The problem
Approximately 800 million people globally do not have electricity or clean cooking fuels. While the use of renewable energies has grown, it still remains only 15-20% of global energy consumption. Much greater efforts are needed to drive development and adoption of clean energy sources to help curb the impact of traditional fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions. Many corporations are leading the way in this effort, including through creating new clean energy technologies and products that grow the clean energy market; powering operations with clean energy; and supporting adoption of clean energy technologies in internal operations and supply chains (for example, by transitioning vehicle fleets to electric vehicles). Much more is needed, however, to accelerate the transition
