America’s Top Companies Are Using Solar and Storage to Meet Their Climate Goals
Author: SEIA Comms Team
The Solar Means Business 2022 report, released on Nov. 29, by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), identifies the companies leading on solar and energy storage adoption in the United States. The report provides a window into how America’s businesses, large and small, are tackling their clean energy goals in 2022. The bar is rising for corporate climate goals. Eighteen of the top 25 companies ranked in this year’s report are pursuing 100% renewable energy or carbon neutral goals. Some of the leading companies are already achieving their targets. For example, this year’s top solar adopter Meta has powered its global operations with 100% renewable energy since 2020 and is now working toward a net zero emission value chain by 2030. The shift toward bigger and bolder climate goals largely occurred in just the past few years. Several factors are driving this trend. One, both customers and employees of companies are demanding more. When making a decision on whether to buy a product, 75% of U.S. adults care about a company’s impact on the environment, and nearly 70% of employees say they are more likely to accept a job with an organization they see as more environmentally sustainable.
