Fortistar, who investments in energy sources primarily focused on the transitioning to a zero-carbon economy, announced that it avoided 2.125 million t of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2016. That’s the equivalent of driving from New York City to Los Angeles almost six times.
The company builds, owns and operates natural gas cogeneration facilities, landfill gas to energy and biomass electric generating plants and CNG fuelling stations throughout the US and Canada.
“For nearly 30 years, Fortistar has been focused on the transition to lower carbon energy sources. We believe strongly that sustainable energy generation done right makes financial sense—for private companies, municipalities and for federal agencies,” said Mark Comora, President, Fortistar. “In the private sector, we’ve helped CEOs, CFOs and Chief Sustainability Officers understand that there are cleaner, healthier and cheaper alternatives to gas or diesel to fuel their fleets. With government agencies and municipalities, we’ve created a path for them to turn trash into an asset—clean renewable energy. We believe that this is the right thing to do and have proven that it benefits the bottom line of our customers.”
Fortistar recognised the opportunities and challenges at the intersection of significantly increasing demand for energy and rising environmental concerns. Recognising this, the company developed an investment strategy connecting people, capital and low-carbon energy solutions to return positive and sustainable results. This investment strategy has yielded long-term, growth-oriented low-carbon energy solutions that are cost-competitive with oil and coal. Further, Fortistar’s ability to forge strong relationships with investors, customers and local communities has been a hallmark of company’s formula for success.
