Mark Ruffalo Urges Businesses to Go 100 Percent Renewable
Actor and environmentalist Mark Ruffalo took to Twitter last night to urge businesses to go one hundred percent renewable.
The tweet was in support of The Climate Group‘s multi-year initiative encouraging major companies to commit to using one hundred percent renewable energy. The goal of the campaign — entitled RE100 — is that “by 2020, 100 of the world’s largest businesses will have committed to 100% renewable power.”
Already big businesses including, IKEA, Swiss Re, BT, Formula E, H&M, KPN, Mars, Nestlé, Philips, Reed Elesvier, J. Safra Sarasin and Yoox, have joined the campaign, recognizing the environmental and business benefits, and are committed to using renewable energy.
Though it’s not quite 100 companies — yet — it’s a great step in the right direction.
Ruffalo has been extremely vocal in support of the climate crisis. He recently asked his fans to take the Meat Free Monday pledge to fight against climate change, and also joined the hundreds of thousands of supporters for the People ‘s Climate March in NYC on Sunday.
Keep up the good work, Mark!
