Howard Energy Partners named most improved in infrastructure by GRESB for its demonstrated commitment to sustainability

Howard Energy Partners (HEP) is pleased to announce that it has been named by GRESB as the Most Improved in the 2021 Infrastructure Assessment.

Each year, GRESB assesses and benchmarks the ESG performance of assets worldwide, providing clarity and insights to financial markets on complex sustainability topics.

The GRESB Assessments are guided by what investors and the industry consider to be material issues in the sustainability performance of asset investments and are aligned with international reporting frameworks, goals and emerging regulations.

The GRESB ESG Benchmark grew this year to cover more than $6.4 trillion of assets under management, up from $5.3 trillion the year before. GRESB data is used by hundreds of capital providers and thousands of asset managers to benchmark investments across portfolios and to better understand the opportunities, risks and choices that need to be made as the industry transitions to a more sustainable future.

“As an organization, our purpose is to deliver positive energy,” said Brandon Burch, Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer for HEP. “We are proud of this recognition by GRESB as it is a testament to our ongoing efforts to provide clean, reliable energy that powers communities and businesses across the U.S. and Mexico, and improves people’s quality of life.”

“We are proud to celebrate the achievements made by this year’s Most Improved organizations. Your dedication to advancing ESG transparency and performance is helping accelerate the whole industry’s progress towards a more sustainable world,” said Sebastien Roussotte, CEO of GRESB. “ESG transparency and improved performance have never been more important, and it is inspiring to see such a high level of dedication from the industry, particularly when so much has been disrupted by the pandemic this last year.”
