Brewing powerhouse Anheuser-Busch InBev is going big on renewable energy, CNBC reports.

The company announced Monday it was committing to secure 100 percent of its purchased electricity from renewable sources by 2025.

"Climate change has profound implications for our company and for the communities where we live and work," CEO Carlos Brito said in a press release. "Cutting back on fossil fuels is good for the environment and good for business, and we are committed to helping drive positive change. We have the opportunity to play a leading role in the battle against climate change by purchasing energy in a more sustainable way."

The move will cut Anheuser Busch's carbon footprint by 30 percent. Electricity will come from onsite solar panels and direct power purchasing agreements, the statement said.

Intel is the largest green power user in the world according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency's "Green Power Partnership National Top 100" list. Green Power, as defined by the EPA is electricity produced from solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, eligible biomass, and low-impact small hydroelectric sources

Microsoft Corp., Kohl's, Cisco Systems Inc. and Google Inc. round out the top five.
