Enviva has announced the release of its 2021 Corporate Sustainability Report.
Their second annual report covers 2020 and focuses on three topics: People, Forests, and Climate Change. The report addresses how Enviva looks to mitigate climate change by displacing fossil fuels in energy, heat, and industrial applications as well as pledging to be Net Zero in its own operations by 2030; improving generational ownership of forest land in the US Southeast; enhancing biodiversity and verifying Enviva’s sourcing practices through an independent audit.
“Over the last two years, we’ve participated in the urgent action required to make headway on the accelerating global climate crisis as well as become a critical part in overcoming the immense challenge economies around the world face in phasing out fossil fuels by 2050. With this in mind, Enviva’s sustainability journey continues to accelerate,” said John Keppler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Enviva. “Looking ahead, Enviva’s renewable wood resources are a potential solution for major industrials like jet fuel refiners and steel, lime, and cement manufacturers to help decarbonize their production processes. We are proud of the progress we made on the sustainability of Enviva and the positive impacts we have made on people, climate, and forests and look forward to the new horizons we expect to reach.”
