T‑Mobile US (TMUS) claimed it was on course to meet its flagship target of relying solely on renewable energy by 2021. We’re already right at the finish line”, declared Chad Wilkinson, Director of Sustainability & Facilities Procurement at TMUS. “We’re at 95% of our commitment for what we’re anticipating we’ll meet in 2021, but we’re not looking to stop there”, the executive told Energy Manager Today. “We’re also looking into the renewable energy needs the company is going to have after we pass 2021”, he added. TMUS set the ambitious renewables goal in 2018, when it joined Climate Group’s RE100 programme (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #71). When it joined RE100, TMUS anticipated being able to cut its energy costs by $100m (€91m) over the following 15 years, by reorganising its power supply chain and forming long‑term power purchase agreements, centred on renewable output.
