Enviva eyes net-zero operations by 2030

Global renewable energy company Enviva has announced its goal of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its operations by 2030.

As part of its carbon neutral target, Enviva, which specialises in sustainable wood bioenergy, has pledged to drive ‘innovative improvements’ in its supply chain. The company says it plans to work with its stakeholders to improve the environmental emissions intensity of trucking, rail, and shipping logistics.

It plans further to take steps to accelerate and advocate for the development of new solutions and to work with its stakeholders to bring those solutions to market.

As an example, Enviva announced its intention to join the Sea Cargo Charter, a cross-industry partnership of ship charterers that aims to establish a consistent global framework for transparently assessing and disclosing the climate impact of ship chartering operations.

‘This very public pledge to mitigate climate change at all levels of our operations by minimising our own carbon footprint further extends our commitment to keeping forests as forests and to responsible and sustainable wood sourcing,’ said Dr. Jennifer Jenkins, Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer of Enviva.
