By joining RE100, Brown-Forman is taking another climate action step to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“We recognize the risks climate change poses to our business and our communities, and we want to mitigate our impact. Combining our past investments in solar at Sonoma-Cutrer, along with our recent investments in a wind power purchase agreement and solar power at the Jack Daniel Distillery, we believe we are taking the necessary steps along the journey to 100% renewable energy,” said Alex Alvarez, Chief Production and Sustainability Officer, Brown-Forman.

Sam Kimmins, Head of RE100 at Climate Group said: “We are delighted to welcome Brown-Forman to RE100. By committing to 100% renewable electricity by 2030, Brown-Forman joins over 300 of the world’s leading businesses committed to driving market change. This sends a powerful message that renewable electricity makes good business sense, and we encourage others to follow”.
