The report “Race to Green: Scoring Tech Companies from China, Japan and South Korea on their Climate Action and Renewable Energy Use” has been published by Greenpeace East Asia. This report tracks renewable energy commitments and follow-through by 30 of East Asia’s leading technology companies. Companies were selected from the 2019 Forbes Top 100 Digital Companies list, with consideration to domestic market value and social impact. Ranking criteria and evaluation methodology were developed by Greenpeace East Asia.
The ranking assesses each company’s climate commitment, climate action, transparency and climate advocacy. The authors hope that a rubric to measure each company’s progress will encourage the region’s tech giants to strengthen their contributions to national, regional and global climate efforts. Maximum GHG emissions reductions can be realized if all companies commit to and achieve 100% renewable energy use across the supply chain by or before 2030.
