Our ESG Principles - we put people first, care deeply about sustainability and do what’s right.

Our environment, social and governance (ESG) approach.

We abate carbon and produce distributed, dispatchable, fast, renewable energy as our core business and are committed to expediting the transition to renewables. At more than one million tonnes of CO2e per annum, we abate 10 times more than the minimum threshold for a facility under the Safeguard Mechanism.

In addition to our core business focus on the “E” in ESG, our values include putting People First and Doing What’s Right.

Our vision is that we are “people engineering a clean energy, zero carbon future”.
We abate carbon and produce distributed, dispatchable,
renewable energy as our core business and we are committed to expediting the transition to renewables. We hold membership of the Australian Carbon Market Institute – an independent industry association for businesses leading the transition to net zero emissions.

Climate change action

LGI supports the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) conclusions for the importance of zero emissions by 2050 to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
We voluntarily offset 100% of our Scope 1 and 2 measured and Scope 3 estimated emissions, which represent <0.1% of abatement by our core business. We pursue actions to reduce our carbon footprint to stay as close to net zero as possible.
As well as being the right thing to do, we are doing more to address climate change to drive innovation and growth.

HSEQ management systems

We apply a harmonised approach to achieve better decision making, resource allocation and efficiency. This enables us to focus on leading indicators to deliver the best results.

Our system consolidates common management ‘’processes’’ (i.e. responsibilities, organisational structure, objectives etc.) to achieve a holistic approach to HSEQ Management.
