Fortistar, who investments in energy sources primarily focused on the transitioning to a zero-carbon economy, announced that it avoided 2.125 million tons of GHG emissions in 2016. That’s the equivalent of driving from New York City to Los Angeles almost six times.

The company builds, owns and operates natural gas cogeneration facilities, landfill gas to energy and biomass electreic generating plants and CNG fueling stations throughout the United States and Canada.

“For nearly 30 years, Fortistar has been focused on the transition to lower carbon energy sources. We believe strongly that sustainable energy generation done right makes financial sense—for private companies, municipalities and for federal agencies,” said Mark Comora, President, Fortistar. “In the private sector, we’ve helped CEOs, CFOs and Chief Sustainability Officers understand that there are cleaner, healthier and cheaper alternatives to gas or diesel to fuel their fleets. With government agencies and municipalities, we’ve created a path for them to turn trash into an asset—clean renewable energy. We believe that this is the right thing to do and have proven that it benefits the bottom line of our customers.”

For more than three decades, Fortistar has built, invested in, owned, and managed an unparalleled portfolio of low-carbon energy initiatives in the United States and Canada.
