North Sky Capital (“North Sky”) is pleased to announce it has been recognized by Environmental Finance’s 2023 Sustainable Company Awards in two categories: “Circular Economy Transition of the Year” and “Pollution Reduction Initiative of the Year.”
North Sky’s Sustainable Infrastructure strategy is a leader in the circular economy, helping communities address waste challenges by converting food waste, agricultural waste and municipal wastewater — along with the methane they produce — into renewable natural gas (“RNG”), fertilizer and animal feed.
Recently, North Sky has invested in a series of waste-to-value facilities in Rhode Island, North Carolina and California that are collectively capable of producing more than 1.1 million MMBtu/year of RNG, fueling the global shift from fossil fuels toward renewable sources of energy.
“We are honored to be recognized for our work in advancing the circular economy and reducing pollution across the United States,” said Adam Bernstein, Managing Director and head of North Sky’s sustainable infrastructure strategy. “We view these projects as a win for the environment, for the communities contending with mounting waste issues and for investors seeking to generate both positive environmental impact and financial returns.”
See North Sky’s 2023 Impact Report for additional details and information on the waste-to-RNG facilities.
