- AltenexAltenex simplifies renewable energy procurement. We help large energy users – colleges and universities, corporations, municipalities – make sense of the fragmented, opaque, and confusing universe of renewable energy developers, products, financing strategies, siting, and contract negotiations. The higher education sector has taken the lead on setting climate action goals. Let Altenex help as your school grapples with the reality of achieving these ambitious goals. Our clients achieve their climate goals by sourcing renewable energy, while reducing energy price risks, and lowering their utilities costs, by locking in long-term pricing from competitive, renewable energy projects. Our experience speaks for itself. Altenex has executed more than 750 megawatts of renewable energy power purchase agreements for some of the world’s leading organizations. Schedule a call to learn how your institution can realize its sustainability goals while responsibly stewarding its financial resources.
- Kimberly Clark ProfessionalKimberly-Clark Professional is the first major paper towel and bathroom tissue manufacturer in North America to introduce products containing natural, non-tree fibers such as bamboo and wheat straw. The advantages of using non-tree fibers are compelling: Rapidly renewable fibers have a shorter harvesting cycle and require less land to support demand, “Recycling” agricultural byproducts, and Preserving natural forests is essential to the sustainability of our environment. These products are sourced and manufactured to stringent third-party environmental standards. As global demand for the world’s resources grows, incorporating these fibers into health and hygiene products becomes critically important. Together, we can reduce our use of resources today, while respecting the needs of tomorrow. Kimberly-Clark Professional partners with businesses to create Exceptional Workplaces* helping to make them healthier, safer, and more productive.
