Environmental, Social & Governance
Cyrq Energy believes that energy can be produced while maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance, sustainability, and environmental responsibility. This is reflected in our long-standing commitment to helping our customers and communities achieve a more sustainable world.
Cyrq is helping move power generation to a cleaner, more sustainable future. Our plants harness the renewable power of the Earth to create energy 24 hours a day that is virtually free from greenhouse gases. Compared to conventional coal-fired plants, electricity produced from geothermal facilities annually offsets the emissions of:
- 4.1 million tons of carbon dioxide
- 80,000 tons of nitrogen oxides
- 110,000 tons of particulate matter
Corporate responsibility is demonstrated through partnerships with our communities and stakeholders, educational, and environmental opportunities, resulting in strong working relationships.
We engage with our employees through quarterly Town Hall meetings, regular site visits by senior management and internal groups like our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. In this way, core values are continuously communicated throughout the organization.
Cyrq’s corporate governance policy requires all employees throughout the organization to act with integrity and ethically in all business dealings.
We acknowledge that many of our facilities are situated on traditional homelands of Indigenous peoples. We are grateful for the territories upon which we operate, and we respect those Indigenous peoples, the original stewards of these lands.
