As announced on February 24, 2021, ReNew has entered into definitive agreement for a business combination with RMG Acquisition Corporation II (NASDAQ: RMGB, RMGBW, RMGBU), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), that would result in ReNew becoming a publicly listed company.

Speaking about the honor, Mr. Sumant Sinha, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ReNew Power said, “We are delighted to be named a Global Lighthouse company by the World Economic Forum. The recognition is a testament to our transformation efforts as we embark on our journey to become a data driven, clean energy enterprise supporting India’s clean energy transition.

Speaking about the Global Lighthouse Network, Mr. Enno de Boer, Partner, McKinsey & Company and Global Lead of its manufacturingworkremarked, “The 69 Lighthouse manufacturers open a window into the future of operations. Though no industry is immune from digital transformation, four sectors are resetting benchmarks - Advanced Industries, Consumer Packaged Goods, Pharmaceutical and Medical products, and Heavy Industries. We are seeing a paradigm shift emerge, from reducing cost to more focus on enabling growth and environmental sustainability. The Lighthouses are proving that unlocking smart capacity through digital technologies is more effective than spending on capital infrastructure.”
