BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marking the first anniversary of China’s pledge to hit peak emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, Chindata Group, a leading carrier-neutral hyperscale data center solution provider in Asia-Pacific emerging markets, is officially joining the RE100 initiative on 22 September 2021. The company also announces its 2040 carbon neutral goals, wherein all of its next-generation hyperscale data centers around the globe will be powered by 100% renewable energy solutions by 2040.

RE100 is a global renewable energy initiative jointly launched by The Climate Group and CDP in 2014, bringing together businesses around the world that are committed to 100% renewable energy. To date, over 300 global companies have joined the initiative, some of which have already achieved that goal through their own means or the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates and renewable electricity.

Chindata Group has successfully implemented net zero carbon emissions solutions for digital infrastructure in China through green power consumption initiatives including direct green power trading, innovative regional green power consumption mechanisms, development of renewable energy power stations, and development of integrated power Generation-Grid-Load-Storage projects. As a result, the company is confident that it is on track to achieving 100% renewable power in its global data centers by 2040, benefiting from factors such as the global zero-carbon digital infrastructure and manufacturing industry chain as well as innovative Asia-Pacific clean energy synergies. This effort also aligns with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of addressing the most pressing challenges facing mankind.

In addition, Alex Ju, Founder and CEO of Chindata Group, a pioneer who champions the renewable power transition in the digital infrastructure industry, will be the headline judge for the RE100 Leadership Awards 2021. The Awards recognize the outstanding work of RE100 members in accelerating the transition to 100% renewable electricity.
