What are Corporate Sustainability & ESG?

Corporate sustainability is a business approach that aims to create long-term shareholder value by taking into account the company’s social, environmental and financial impacts.

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) is a corporate sustainability framework that impacts corporate business decisions worldwide. ESG strategies are designed to meet the needs of society while achieving economic growth through corporate policies addressing the need for environmental equilibrium.

Renewable Energy Certificates

Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) provide a pathway for corporations and consumers to support the growth of the renewable energy industry. A REC represents the environmental attributes of one MWh of green power produced.

RECs provide an additional revenue stream for renewable energy generators and incentivize energy project developers to invest in renewable technologies.

RECs allow corporations and consumers to promote clean power and accelerate the decarbonization of our electrical grids.

Carbon Offsets

Carbon offsets enable corporations and consumers to support the development of projects created to reduce or remove greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the atmosphere. A carbon offset represents one metric tonne of avoided or removed CO2e emissions.

The viability of every emissions reduction project must depend on the additional revenue stream generated from the carbon offsets it produces. Corporations and consumers enable the development of emissions reduction projects when purchasing carbon credits.

Carbon offsets allow corporations and consumers to accelerate our transition to a decarbonized economy and address climate change by mitigating the effects of their GHG emissions.
