Beyond our work to accelerate the shift to clean energy through renewable energy projects, it is critical for Apex to act and lead on sustainability.

We seek solutions that transcend our business model to lower our individual and collective environmental footprints, and we invest in socially responsible practices and share our expertise to expand opportunities for others to further the transition to a better, more sustainable future.

Resilience amid uncertainty

Thousands of rural American towns and counties are already being sustained by the jobs and economic benefits delivered by utility-scale wind and solar energy projects. These revenue streams enable landowners and communities to persevere through the best of times and the worst of times. These projects make communities more resilient, and in times like these, resilience is endurance.

Enhancing conservation through the energy transition

With our core value of sus­tainability top of mind, Apex strives to not only advance the sustainability of America’s energy system as a whole, but also enhance local ecosystems and hab­itats where Apex’s projects are developed and operated. That’s why we created the Apex Conserva­tion Grant (ACG) program—a first in the industry.

Investing in inspirational people

Through its Community Grant Program, Apex works to enhance its renewable energy projects’ economic benefits for rural America, which has not always shared in the economic investment that urban and suburban communities benefit from. One of those beneficiaries is Special Olympics Illinois, and by extension, its athletes—like Rachel Zakutansky.

Apex Plaza: Sustainable from the ground up

Our mass-timber headquarters, which features green building materials, solar power generation, and on-site battery storage, is on the cutting edge of sustainable design—mirroring our work at the forefront of the new energy economy

Employee sustainability incentives

Apex is committed to supporting employees’ efforts to contribute to the company mission, even when away from work. It is in this spirit that Apex will provide financial incentives to employees who purchase electric cars, tools, and bikes; install solar panels on their roofs; avoid driving to work; and make their homes more energy efficient.
