Enviva has been selected as a finalist for the 2021 ESG Reporting Awards, a program devoted to assessing and evaluating the best public companies in the areas of sustainability and climate-related reporting.
ESG Investing shortlisted Enviva as a finalist under the “Energy and Utilities” category. Enviva is a leading global renewable energy company specializing in sustainable wood bioenergy.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for our relentless commitment to sustainability and transparency among our peers in the energy and utility sector,” Dr. Jennifer Jenkins, vice-president and chief sustainability officer at Enviva, said. “For years to come, Enviva’s policies, pledges and reports will continue to guide our work to ensure that 100 per cent of our sourcing meets our strict sustainability requirements. We hope our forward-thinking approach to sustainability and transparent publicly available reporting will inspire and motivate others across the industry to do the same.”
Over the last year, Enviva developed and deployed a Track and Trace standard, enabling the company to engage a third-party auditor to verify and ensure the company has and will continue to follow T&T procedures and reporting accurately.
The company announced its commitment to become net zero in its operations by 2030 and has agreed to publicly report on its progress annually. Throughout the next year, Enviva is working to include blockchain in its reporting to enhance end-to-end assurance in its traceability.
Enviva Holdings is a leading producer of industrial wood pellets – a renewable and sustainable energy source used to generate electricity and heat.
