We develop, build and finance dependable and profitable biogas projects across Southeast Asia that significantly reduce carbon emissions, protect biodiversity, and create sustainable change for local communities.

OUR IMPACT TO DATE

OUR IMPACTS

Climate Change

The food industry contributes to a third of the emissions worldwide. In Indonesia, primary food processors’ wastewater emit 50 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent per year which is equivalent to the pollution of 10 million cars. Gree Energy captures methane emissions from industrial wastewater, a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than CO2 and more than 80 times over the next decade, which we then use to turn into renewable energy. Installing a methane capture can reduce a food processor’s overall greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%.

Our impact to date:
  • 33,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions reduced per year (equivalent to removing 7,000 cars from the road every year)

Clean Water

In Indonesia, where we work, 75% of rivers in Indonesia are seriously polluted. Primary food processors in Indonesia generate wastewater equivalent to the domestic waste of 185 million people. Gree Energy removes more than 85% of industrial water pollution.

Our impact to date:
  • 333,000 population equivalent of domestic waste*

*Population equivalent (in waste-water monitoring and treatment) refers to the amount of oxygen—demanding substances whose oxygen consumption during biodegradation equals the average oxygen demand of the waste water produced by one person. For practical calculations, it is assumed that one unit equals 54 grams of BOD per 24 hours.

Clean Energy

Millions of households in Indonesia experience electricity shortage, unpredictable power outages and unstable connections. Indonesia has an untapped biogas-to-energy potential of 40 TWh, the renewable electricity alone is enough to supply 30 million people with clean and reliable energy in rural areas.

Our impact to date:
  • 26,000 people reached with clean and reliable energy
  • 12.6 GWh of electricity supplied to local grid per year
  • 19 villages reached

Sustainable Development Goals

Gree Energy empowers the food industry in emerging countries to cut methane emissions, treat wastewater, and create opportunities for clean energy in underserved rural communities. We adopt measurable and verified ESG metrics to report activities, results and impacts transparently.

Sustainable development goals reached through biogas

We believe in developing long-term sustainable biogas projects. To lead our vision we have established policies as a compass to the way we create impact and provide value for our stakeholders.
