Making renewable energy make sense for all

Let's roll!


Our Guiding Principles

Emergi operates according to these core principles:


We tackle problems with courage and curiosity to create solutions that can have a positive societal and environmental impact in the communities that we work in.


We want to make a clean break from polluting practices that are harmful for the environment. We aim to make and use products and services that are conscious of our depleting natural resources.


We listen to everyone who works for us, with us and is affected by the products and services that we create, by including them in our design and policy decisions.
