Our Sustainable Development Goals

Creating a Better Future through Impactful Investments.

At Capton Energy, we believe that private enterprises must be at the forefront of promoting sustainable economic development. As a renewable energy company with major operations in developing and emerging markets, Capton Energy was founded to address the goals of sustainable development and impact investment.

We work in developing nations providing access to energy and clean water, as well as providing job opportunities and vocational training.

Our belief in sustainability applies to all our stakeholders. Our projects must be sustainable for our clients, sustainable for the environment and communities in which the projects are located, sustainable for our employees and sustainable for our shareholders.

 

Our sustainable development goals

Affordable & Clean Energy

Capton Energy is an investment and development platform whose strategy involves direct equity investments in energy transition infrastructure projects that advance society towards a sustainable future powered by clean energy, such as solar-themed, hybrid energy generation and storage projects.

Decent Work & Economic Growth

Capton Energy aims to encourage the creation of quality jobs, which remains a major challenge in certain jurisdictions, by ensuring that we promote safe, secure and decent working environments that comprise fair wages, local employment, inclusive development and the absence of unethical working practices. Allowing sustainable economic growth will require societies to create conditions that allow people to have quality jobs that stimulate the economy while not harming the environment.

Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Green infrastructure is at the core of Capton Energy’s DNA with its primary technologies of interest being dedicated for energy transition infrastructure including renewable energy projects. Capton Energy aspires to develop new infrastructure and upgrade/retrofit industries to make them more sustainable.
Capton Energy aims to create a positive impact on local communities and industries through its investments, especially in the developing countries. This includes efforts to reduce carbon emissions in electricity generation, lower energy consumption, expand electrification, and enhance access to energy.

Responsible Consumption & Production

Capton Energy strives to facilitate the sustainable and efficient use of natural sources via its investments in energy transition infrastructure assets.

Throughout the entire investment cycle, Capton Energy will ensure to include sustainability information in its reporting process, from the original assessment of the opportunity to asset management and exit and will communicate the findings with its local partners. In addition, Capton Energy’s financial and technical expertise will be brought to developing countries in order to help them strengthen their technological capacity to move towards more sustainable patterns of consumption and production.

Partnerships for the Goals

Capton Energy is targeting the creation of a successful sustainable development agenda that requires the existence of robust partnerships between governments, the private sector and the civil society. Capton Energy may engage in public-private partnerships (PPPs) and partnerships with local developers to help invest in and develop infrastructure projects, leveraging combined expertise and resources. These inclusive partnerships, built upon shared principles, values, visions and goals and placing people and the planet at the center, are required at the global, regional, national and local levels.

More precisely, by targeting under-funded market segments, Capton Energy will help to mobilize financial resources for developing countries, including in small and medium-scale projects and emerging business models that generally promote energy access.
