Our vision of sustainability is centered on our three strategic pillars; growth, operational excellence and sustainability leadership.

With more than 30 years of experience developing and operating renewable and clean energy facilities, Algonquin was focused on sustainable power generation long before the green economy became the market focus that it is today.

Sustainability, to us, means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It means leaving the planet in as good or in a better state for our children than the state we found it in – ensuring a healthy world for generations to come.

We have demonstrated our prioritization of sustainability through the rollout of important ESG initiatives, such as our enterprise-wide goal to achieve net-zero by 2050.
