Our ESG Approach

ACEN’s aspiration to be a leading renewable energy provider is driven by its goal to create value that would benefit society, as well as our employees and shareholders. Sustainability is at the core of our business, and it is integrated into the way we do things.

Last October, we announced our commitment to achieve Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. ACEN recognizes that we have a role to play in addressing the rising global temperatures, threatened biodiversity, and social inequality.

We believe that strong Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance is an indicator of long-term financial growth and resilience for a company.
We collaborate with different partners and influence others to do the same, in order to help accelerate the energy transition, and shape the future together.

We aim to deliver long-term value for all our stakeholders and continue to develop initiatives across our ESG strategy to have a clear roadmap, as well as metrics and targets, that track our ESG performance alongside our financial performance.

This journey is not just for ACEN but for all our stakeholders as well.

Our Environmental & Social Policy

Paving the way to integrate sustainability in the way we work and influence our decision-making on strategy, capital allocation, operations, governance, and culture is our Environmental and Social (E&S) Policy, with the aim to deliver long-term value for all our stakeholders.

As part of our sustainability commitment, we implement the Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) to manage E&S risks and impacts throughout the life cycle of our projects. Through the ESMS, we are able to identify and assess E&S risks to develop appropriate action plans and mitigation measures.
