Sustainable development

From balance comes sustainability

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. At Innergex, we are very proud of our commitment to produce renewable energy exclusively. We have come to know that sustainable development isn’t just about what we do, but also about how we do it. Our success has been founded on developing good projects, which for us means projects that are accepted by the local community, respectful of the environment, and economically viable both for us and the electric utilities we service – in other words, projects that strike a balance between social, environmental, and economic considerations. Over the years, management has intuitively applied these principles of sustainability in building the Company, based on our long-term mindset.

The course we originally set remains just as relevant today – if not more so – and we reaffirm our mission to increase our production of renewable energy by developing and operating high-quality facilities while respecting the environment and balancing the best interests of the host communities, our partners, and our shareholders. In conducting our business, we strive to achieve a balance between economic, social and environmental considerations and we commit ourselves to planning, deciding, managing, and operating through the lens of sustainable development. We recognize this to be a continuous improvement process.

We invite our partners and stakeholders to continue on the journey with us.
