Metrus Energy announced today that it has upped its current America Is All In commitment to $200 million of investment in sustainable energy projects. This investment will help businesses, schools, hospitals, and local governments accelerate progress on their sustainability goals, increase resiliency and mitigate climate change.
The announcement was made by Metrus CEO Bob Hinkle who is attending the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow as part of a delegation led by the Business Council for Sustainable Energy and the Alliance to Save Energy. He announced the commitment during a panel discussion at the U.S. Climate Action Center in Glasgow that focused on the need for private investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy to accelerate the transition towards net-zero.
“We are doubling our commitment to America is All In because we believe in the value of financing climate action,” said Hinkle. “Getting to net zero cannot be done without mobilizing private finance and we have to do our part and work with our partners, customers and the entire sustainable energy industry to exponentially increase our investments in climate-positive projects."
America Is All In is a partnership of more than 3,500 CEOs, mayors, governors, college presidents, and other leaders committed to climate action. To date, Metrus has financed and implemented sustainable energy projects that are avoiding the emission of approximately 745,000 metric tons of CO2.
