How we work

Clean and sustainable energy

In a world with ever increasing energy needs, viable, profitable and sustainable solutions are required. Enerside is committed to providing renewable energy solutions which empower local communities, businesses and investors to be autonomous and obtain a financial return while looking after the planet. For Enerside, sustainability is an integral part of our organization and it is embedded in all business units.

Enerside works systematically and programmatically to identify and evaluate the sustainability challenges that are most important for our stakeholders and our business.

Enerside is fully committed to the United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Enerside also wants to show its continuous support of the UN’s Global Compact, as well as its ongoing commitment to the 10 principles referring to Human Rights, Employment Rights, the Environment and the fight against corruption. Therefore, an extensive analysis has been carried out in all areas of the company and a Strategic ESG plan has been created, based on the sustainable development goals. The aim is to achieve maximum excellence in Environmental, Governance and Social aspects.
