Anaergia releases first sustainability ESG report
The report highlights Anaergia’s ESG achievements for 2021, including a net total of 465,000 tonnes (CO2e) of greenhouse gas emissions that Anaergia projects helped to avoid - about 41 times more than what the company’s operations produced.
The analysis includes estimated emissions avoided at facilities under Anaergia’s operational control, as well as third-party facilities commissioned since 2010 that operate using Anaergia’s technologies at design specification. The report also includes an overview of Anaergia’s social and governance practices.
Andrew Benedek, chairman and CEO of Anaergia, said: “Our inaugural report is focused on the ‘E’ in ESG, naturally, because our company was created to address the climate crisis.
“This report quantifies the effects of Anaergia’s technologies and projects, which address a leading cause of climate change – the problem of methane emissions from waste. We are turning this methane emissions problem on its head. Instead of allowing waste to cause climate change, we are using it to create a much-needed carbon-negative renewable fuel. Doing so can address about two-thirds of all point-source methane emissions.”
