Car manufacturer Tata Motors has announced its commitment to source 100% of its energy from renewables.

The Indian firm, which currently uses around 8% of its electricity from green sources, has joined the ‘RE100’ global initiative.

The scheme aims to encourage businesses towards using only green energy at their manufacturing sites.

Other major companies that are part of the initiative are Nike, M&S and Philips.

Arvind Bodhankar, Chief Sustainability Officer of Tata Motors Limited said: “Our climate change policy aims to maximise the use of renewable energy in our manufacturing operations. Doing so will not only reduce our carbon emissions but also lead to long term financial savings.

“The RE100 movement shows that the transition to renewable energy is achievable and it offers a powerful network to support and celebrate businesses increasing their use of renewable power.”
