People – Planet – Profit

Guided by the 3-P principle of People-Planet-Profit, Good Energies aims to bring financial success together with sustainable returns for the environment and for society. We seek to help drive the transition to a low-carbon economy, as well as to bring affordable renewable energy to the developing world.

The transition to more renewable sources of energy offers unique challenges and opportunities in each dimension of the 3-P sustainability principles which guide our investments:

Because Good Energies believes that access to affordable renewable energy is a precondition of poverty alleviation, Good Energies has dedicated a portion of its investments to companies focused on expanding access to renewable energy in the developing world. We see our work in the developing world as an essential vehicle to spread the adoption of renewable energy solutions across the globe.
