E+E Leader – Ameresco’s Renewable Energy Assets ‘Significantly Offset’ Carbon Output, Company Says
Ameresco added a full-year appendix to its 2021 ESG report with data that shows the company’s renewable energy assets helped to significantly offset carbon output and its Scope 1 and 2 emissions fell.
The renewable energy and efficiency company says releasing the appendix helps it maintain accountability and show transparency through evaluation of its ESG metrics and progress toward its sustainability goals. It will also help Ameresco consider additional ways to continue to grow its ESG efforts.
Ameresco says in 2021, its renewable energy projects helped offset the equivalent of nearly 13.6 million metric tons of carbon dioxide, and it has now offset more than 75 million metric tons of carbon since 2010. Ameresco’s goal is to reduce its customers’ carbon footprint by 500 million metric tons by 2050; the company says it had achieved 14% of that goal through 2020.
