Altus Power was founded to address the urgent need to transform the way we generate and consume power. Our mission – to create a clean electrification ecosystem that can provide renewable energy to every business, home, and electric vehicle – is intrinsically linked to clean, renewable power as the foundation for a sustainable future.
We believe that leadership in environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices is central to accomplishing our mission, so we continue to take steps to address the environmental and social risks of our operations and products. To this end, we have established a Corporate Social Responsibility Committee that is dedicated to implementing and improving upon sustainability practices throughout our company. Our team is passionate about empowering communities and businesses to accelerate the global energy transition while also doing everything we can to foster a diverse, inclusive, and sustainability-driven corporate culture at Altus Power.
Our sustainability efforts are organized into the three ESG pillars: Environmental, Social, and Governance. For more information or to learn more about the sustainability efforts at Altus Power, please review the 2021 Sustainability Report.
All of our actions and each of our ESG pillars are underpinned by driving the clean energy transition of our customers across the United States.
Our Environmental Pillar focuses on providing clean, affordable energy to our customers; maintaining a robust environmental management program that ensures we protect the environment in the communities where we operate and build; and helping to make our energy infrastructure more resilient and sustainable.
Our Social pillar focuses on attracting and retaining a team of talented individuals, while offering opportunities for growth and development; building a diverse and inclusive work force; and ensuring a safety-first workplace for our employees through proper training, policies and protocols.
Our Governance Pillar focuses on adhering to the highest standards of corporate governance, ethical business conduct, transparency, honesty, and integrity while developing a strong and resilient company. We believe that strong governance is the foundation on which all resilient and successful companies are built.

Altus Power's solar systems generated 359,707 MWh of solar power in 2021. That is equivalent to the CO2 emissions from:
The solar arrays that we build and maintain will produce clean and affordable energy for years to come, displacing utility power generated from fossil fuels and directly enabling households and corporations to reduce their own carbon footprint. Altus is empowering our residential and corporate customers, partners, and communities to reach their sustainability goals.
In addition to empowering others on their sustainability journey, it is equally important that we consider the environmental impacts of our own business. We strive to be industry leaders in environmental stewardship. We maintain a robust environmental management program to ensure we protect the environment in the communities where we build and are implementing strategies to address the emissions involved with building a solar project. Whenever possible, Altus partners with businesses to provide North American manufactured solar panels. Finally, we are developing processes to measure and track the Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 carbon emissions from our business.
Our end-to-end solution reduces the high initial cost of adding a solar system to your building or business. We manage the project from start to finish and our interests in providing the most reliable product align with yours.
