Our Purpose

White Arrow Right Element

Realizing a sustainable, low-carbon future requires looking beyond our core business as a renewable energy company.

It demands a holistic approach that embeds sustainability into every facet of our operations and decision-making.

Since day one, Apex Clean Energy has had a singular focus: we develop, finance, build, own, and operate renewable energy facilities, helping our partners—spanning the utility, corporate, health care, education, and government sectors—reduce their emissions. As a values-driven company, we have always strived to develop projects that go above and beyond, prioritizing responsible siting, ecological conservation, and community engagement.

Now, we are redoubling our efforts to minimize our environmental impact, foster a diverse and purpose-driven workforce, and ensure ethical, transparent governance. We will set ambitious goals, informed by our comprehensive 2022 materiality assessment. We will invest in the systems and expertise needed to drive data-based decisions. And we will hold ourselves accountable to all our stakeholders.

Sustainability Framework

Apex’s approach to sustainability centers on three pillars: Our Planet, Our People, and Our Practice.

This framework is one of continuous improvement—evolving, adapting, and pushing boundaries

to further the transition to a better, more sustainable future.
