Automating the transition to corporate carbon neutrality
After over a decade of experience on the ground building wind projects around the world, Eric joined Nike as the director of renewable energy. At the time, there was no real consensus on how to convert such a massive Fortune 100 corporation with 2,400+ factories in 28 countries to 100% renewable power. He had to start from the ground up. Over the next few years, Eric helped create the #1 corporate renewable energy program in the world (tied with Apple in 2018).
Eric's "aha" moment came while on the ground at factories throughout China, Vietnam, Indonesia and India. He noticed that many of the same factories producing shoes and clothes for Nike were making products for other brands, and many of those brands had also signed on to the RE100 pledge to become 100% renewable. Eric realized that wind and solar projects designed to cover multiple brands manufacturing in the same area could create a much larger impact. This was an opportunity much bigger than just Nike. Ren was born.
