AC Energy’s commitment to sustainability is linked to its corporate strategy and vision, and aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Guided by its Environmental & Social (E&S) Policy, the company’s sustainability framework is built on three focus areas embedded across its business operations, governance, and culture: having a low carbon portfolio by 2030, protecting the environment and investing in communities.

Measuring Our Impact on Sustainability

AC Energy started to develop targets and measures to help drive its sustainability agenda across the organization and with it business partners. Sustainability is fully integrated in the company’s strategy. In March 2020, AC Energy announced the board approval of its E&S Policy, incorporating sustainability in its business and organization. At the core of the policy is the company’s transition to a low carbon portfolio and divestment of its coal plants by 2030.

AC Energy also established a management system that incorporates global best practices in biodiversity management, circular economy, community relations, and organizational diversity, well-being, and safety.

Our Priority SDGs

AC Energy focuses on these SDG areas where it believes it can make the most difference and are most relevant to its business.
