September 24th, 2019 | by The Beam

Commitment to sustainability has required untiring efforts from corporates. The race does not stop at 100% renewables. For taking up the sustainability reins, an attack is the best form of defense. At the beginning of this process, pragmatism was important. Corporate renewable energy pioneers were mainly focusing on standard corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs) and guarantees of origin (GOs). Now, sustainability leaders mainly focus on three areas: Location, supply chain, and synchronization of consumption and renewable energy supply
