Support & Recognition:
Gree Energy empowers food processors in emerging countries to deploy biogas solutions that treat industrial wastewater and significantly reduce methane emissions.
We make biogas solutions financially viable by unlocking access to proven technologies, carbon credit revenues, green finance and clean energy markets. Gree Energy makes decarbonization for agriculture and food supply-chains happen, at scale.
What do you want to learn more about?
Transforming food systems can tackle climate change, and much more.
In emerging countries, inadequate treatment of wastewater from food production is responsible for massive methane emissions and water pollution. In Indonesia alone, where we work, the food industry wastewater represents a water pollution of 320 million population-equivalent, more than the domestic wastewater of the entire population of the country. That water pollution, in its turn, emits about 50 million tonnes of CO2 per year, an equivalent of the greenhouse gas emission of 10 million cars. Methane is a super climate pollutant that 150 countries, including Indonesia, have committed to reducing by at least 30% by 2030 as part of the Global Methane Pledge.
In Indonesia, treating this industrial wastewater and capturing the methane produced would allow the generation of more than 30 TWh of clean and affordable energy, enough to provide reliable power and fuel solutions all year long to more than 10 million people in underserved rural communities.
Proven biogas solutions already exist. We make them happen.
Biogas technology can cut food industry methane emissions and transform industrial wastewater into biogas for renewable energy, carbon credits and natural fertilizers. However, for most food processors in emerging countries, these technologies are not accessible nor affordable. Gree Energy bridges this gap.
Our model enables food processors to tap into the carbon credit, renewable energy markets and green finance markets to finance biogas infrastructures. Leveraging our combined experience of over 50 years in carbon expertise, resilient and regenerative food supply chains and renewable energy asset development, we ensure that biogas infrastructures are within the reach of food processors.
Our biogas solutions are recognized by international certification bodies and government-led funds.
Positive impact is at the core of everything we do to create real benefits to the people and the planet. Gree Energy is B Corp certified and meets high standards of verified social and environmental performance. Our solutions are also compliant with world-class industry standards and frameworks including:
- Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), the world’s most widely used voluntary GHG carbon credit program that has collectively reduced or removed more than 1 billion tonnes of CO2 equivalent from the atmosphere.
- IFC’s Environmental and Social Performance Standards (IFC PS), an international benchmark for identifying and managing environmental and social risk.
- IRIS+, the broadly adopted system for measuring, managing, and optimizing impact.
- Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
Our business model has received funding and technical assistance from prominent intergovernmental organizations such as the UN programme Seed Capital Assistance Facility; the International Renewable Energy Agency and from national development aid agencies such as the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and Agence Française de Développement (AFD).
Supported by powerful partners around the world.
Our team has decades of combined experience in carbon emission expertise and resilient and regenerative food supply chains. We use world class industry standards including VCS, IFC PS, IRIS+, and SDG and our business model is supported by prominent international development agencies and organizations such as SCAF, FFEM, AFD, UKAID, and IRENA.
