about blackstone

A New Energy Paradigm.

The energy market collapse of 2001 exposed the industry’s deep lack of transparency, and we knew there had to be a better way forward – one that would put both clients and planet first.

The result was Blackstone, a team of energy specialists with extensive cross-sector expertise who wanted to offer something no other company was: unbiased, client-centric advice and common-sense, actionable solutions focused on responsible energy consumption and carbon reduction.

ESG AT BLACKSTONE

How we’re taking real action for both people and the planet

about blackstone energy

Our vision to take all of our clients to net-zero emissions by 2050 may have been inspired by the Paris Agreement, but it’s built on our own unrelenting push for carbon neutrality.

We’re working towards a better world – for our clients, teammates and partners, but most especially for our children, with decisive, meaningful action. Through our actions we hope to have have a transformative impact on some of the UN’s most critical Sustainable Development Goals.
