Sustainability

A sustainable future,
built on positive energy

SUSTAINABILITY

Everyone, everywhere should have affordable, clean energy

Over a billion people lack electricity.  Hundreds of millions more live with unreliable or expensive power.  Access to reliable, affordable energy improves health, education, food security, gender equality, livelihoods and poverty levels.  Creating that access - while also positively impacting the environment - is our fundamental goal. 

Today, we modernize energy and power infrastructure in emerging countries, supplying a more affordable, cleaner fuel - natural gas.  Tomorrow, we aim to provide zero-carbon energy in the form of green hydrogen.  Every day, our goal is to create a world that’s powered by positive energy.

A note from our CEO

We founded New Fortress Energy with a simple but ambitious mission centered on sustainability.  We want to reduce emissions and increase access to power across the world.  Climate change is an existential threat that is already impacting our planet’s ecosystems and communities.  At the same time, over a billion people still don’t have electricity and the vast majority of humans have limited or unreliable access.  To address these challenges, we sought to bring more affordable and cleaner fuel to markets that have a growing need for reliable power and electricity.

"Energy access is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today." - United Nations

We couldn't agree more.  We fully support the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and are excited and proud to do our part to make them a reality.
