Commitment to Sustainability

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, providing clean energy to every home, business, 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. Our Corporate Social Responsibility Committee 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 2022 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.

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.

Community Solar

Community solar expands access to solar energy. Great option when there are physical or financial limitations to rooftop installation. Community Solar allows customers to purchase their electricity from a nearby solar project and receive an energy discount!

Environmental Justice

As part of our community solar projects, we are dedicated to expanding access to renewable energy to low- and moderate-income customers. We are working to provide community solar access to thousands of LMI customers in several states.


We look for passionate and motivated individuals to foster an exciting and innovative company culture. We care about our employees and offer opportunities for growth and development.

We have been rapidly growing and have been thoughtful in building a diverse and inclusive workforce. At the office we encourage a collaborative workspace where everyone contributes and plays a vital role to the success of the business.

We place trust and responsibility in our employees, and they are constantly exceeding expectations.

Our core business of proliferating clean, discounted energy from solar arrays located locally within the communities where our customers consume the power directly supports UN SDGs 7, 11 and 13 and we expect our support to expand further in coming years as we harness the opportunity to offer decarbonization benefits to additional customers across the United States and abroad.  We also have a direct and positive impact on UN SDG 9 through our investment in infrastructure. In addition, we aim to execute our business in a manner which supports UN SDGs 5, 8 and 15 by promoting fair wages, full and productive employment and decent work as well as gender equality and preservation of the environment.
