Sustainability at UGE
A Letter from Our Founder and CEO
Every day at UGE, we work to bring renewable energy projects to life. In pursuit of our goal to power a cleaner world, we believe that our commitment to sustainability should go beyond the solutions we offer our customers, and permeate everything we do. Guided by our core values, we aim to:
Be Great by being the best possible expert and partner for our clients,
Be Green in both the solutions we build for our clients and the way we operate day-to-day,
Have Fun by maintaining a positive, productive
environment within our teams as well as the communities we belong.
With the release of our 2015 Annual Sustainability Report, we are excited to share the progress we’ve made on our corporate sustainability strategy. Last year, in our first Report, we outlined the initiatives we planned to undertake to live our core values. In 2015, we made significant achievements in pursuit of these goals, including:
rolling out our Vendor Compliance Policy,
finalizing our new, lower impact packaging,
investing in our employees through a new Professional Development Policy,
prioritizing a reduction of paper waste,
tracking and monitoring our carbon emissions,
achieving RoHS compliance - certifying that our wind turbines do not contain any hazardous substances.
We look forward to expanding our programs as we grow UGE into a company that not only leads the market for renewable energy, but exemplifies sustainable best practices across our value chain. In the coming year, we look forward to furthering our commitments by formalizing our internal sustainability training, reviewing the criteria for supplier standards, and ensuring transparency in all of our processes.
As always, we thank you for your shared excitement and interest in UGE. We value your feedback and encourage you to reach out to us at any time.
