Northland Power releases 2023 Sustainability Report highlighting ESG achievements

Press Release

released its 2023 Sustainability Report, ‘Powering Possibility’, that highlights the Company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) achievements from the past year.

“Despite industry headwinds, our teams continued to drive performance and delivered important milestones for Northland, the industry and key markets globally,” said President and CEO, Mike Crawley. “Our achievements lay the groundwork to ensure we continue to support global energy transition efforts in the long-term and further highlights the importance of ensuring our ESG priorities are aligned and executed responsibly across our business.”

Last year, Northland entered construction on three major projects in our portfolio, including two offshore wind projects, Hai Long (1.0 GW) in Taiwan and Baltic Power (1.1 GW) in Poland, and Northland‘s first battery storage project, Oneida (250 MW), in Canada. With their size and scale, these projects will make a significant impact on decarbonization efforts in their respective regions. Hai Long and Baltic Power will have the capacity to provide more than 2.5 million households with clean energy and avoid ~5 million tonnes of CO2 per year. Oneida, with its capacity to save and store energy, will enhance grid reliability and affordability in Southern Ontario and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1.2 million tonnes over the project’s lifespan.

“Northland’s ESG priorities are synonymous with our company’s purpose to build a better world for generations to come,” said John Brace, Executive Chair. “With more than 2.4 GW of projects in construction, we’re building the infrastructure, policies and protocols that ensure we can deliver against our commitment to minimize environmental impact, uphold social responsibility and drive economic resilience for the business.”

Northland’s priorities and commitments reflect global best practice standards and frameworks including the GHG Protocol and the Electric Utilities & Power Generators standards from the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), the Taskforce for Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).
