Respect the environment
For Innergex, developing sustainably means harnessing the water, wind or sun in a way that avoids, minimizes, mitigates or compensates for impacts on the surrounding ecosystem. We take this responsibility very seriously. Over the past 25 years, we have earned a reputation for upholding the strictest environmental standards and we continuously strive to improve our assessment, monitoring, commitment-tracking, compliance and reporting practices. In doing so, we have developed innovative best practices that, in some cases, have become standard practice in our industry.
Innergex’s achievements on the environmental front are the work of a team of dedicated environmental experts consisting of biologists, environmental engineers and specialists in key areas such as habitat mitigation, reconstruction, environmental permitting, and monitoring: people who care about doing things right.
For renewable energy facilities, we have found that potential environmental impacts are most likely to occur during the construction phase. Consequently, our environmental activities focus largely on the careful analysis and planning of each new project, obtaining all necessary permits, monitoring construction activities, restoring the site after construction, and then monitoring the site to ensure that it is recovering as expected and monitoring the facility to ensure that it is performing as expected.
