TK Elevator in Atlanta Uses 100% Renewable Electricity
TK Elevator has achieved 100% renewable electricity through a green tariff at its Innovation and Qualification Centre (IQC) in Atlanta since opening the highly sustainable building at the start of 2022.
IQC's energy supplier is Cobb EMC (Electric Membership Corporation), which serves over 200,000 homes and companies in the metro Atlanta area.
This achievement is in line with TK Elevator's aim of achieving 100% renewable electricity throughout all of its global operations by 2030.
As proof of this commitment, TK Elevator recently joined RE100, a global renewable electricity programme centred on a commitment to source 100% renewable electricity.
TK Elevator is one of more than 350 leading companies to join RE100. The RE100 is led by the Climate Group in partnership with CDP, which has bestowed TK Elevator with its prestigious 'A' ranking for climate transparency and action every year since TK Elevator became an independent company.
Kevin Lavallee, the CEO of Business Unit North America and Group COO Field, said:
"We are committing countless resources towards making the world safer and healthier, including purchasing renewable electricity. How we source energy is a priority for our company as we work to achieve our ambitious carbon targets."
Monica Miller Brown, Senior Sustainability Manager, Business Unit North America, said:
"We are pleased to partner with Cobb EMC for our renewable energy needs, which has not only helped us in our pursuit to achieve our tough energy goals but with our LEED Gold certification for this landmark building as well."
