All of our work – 100% of our revenue – is connected to activities creating sustainable value to the environment.
In 2020, our solar power plants generated 70.0 GWh of clean electricity – corresponding to the energy needs of around 19,000 households – and 29,799 tonnes of CO2 emissions were avoided.
Our work also includes ongoing research and development in the field of clean water technology, and our services include a unique nanoremediation solution, to address the growing problem of per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) contamination in groundwater, as well as other contaminants.
Beyond the work we do, we have various policies in place to ensure that our dedication to the environment is also reflected in our internal practices.
