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 centered on a sustainable business model 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 new enterprise-wide goal to achieve net-zero by 2050.
Our Sustainability Plan is built on an ambitious set of goals to be achieved by 2023. We are confident in our performance against these goals, and as our deadline approaches, we are re-examining our performance measures and working to refresh our goals to take on a longer-term perspective.
