CHICAGO (Oct. 6, 2017) – Invenergy, North America’s largest privately-held renewable energy company, today announced it received Oracle’s 2017 Sustainability Innovation Award for its efforts in promoting sustainable environmental practices within its business. The award was presented to Invenergy this week during Oracle’s OpenWorld conference in San Francisco, CA. 

“As a clean energy company, sustainability is at the heart of what we do, not only in the clean energy projects we develop and operate, but also in all aspects of our business operations. We are honored to be recognized by Oracle for our sustainable business processes,” said Steve Ryder, Invenergy Senior Vice President & Chief Financial Officer, who accepted the award on the company’s behalf. “Oracle, through its cloud-based enterprise resource planning systems, better enables us to bring clean energy solutions to society though more efficient processes and better execution.” 

To date, Invenergy’s clean energy projects have offset more than 54 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), equivalent to taking more than 10 million cars off the road for a year. The company is headquartered in a LEED Silver office designed to reduce water and energy consumption. Consistent with its mission, Invenergy in October 2015 signed the American Business Act on Climate Pledge to demonstrate its support for action on climate change. Invenergy recently implemented several enterprise-wide technology platforms, including Oracle, to advance its long-term goal of a paperless office and to streamline processes supporting the development and construction of renewable energy projects.
