Powering Innovation: IGS Energy Acquires JadeTrack
This week we are happy to share the news that JadeTrack was acquired by Columbus-based IGS Energy!
At JadeTrack, we will continue to operate independently as our own company, product, and brand but with even more resources and support to help us navigate a rapidly evolving market.
For background, IGS Energy is an innovator, and leader in sustainable technologies and services, including:
- 100% renewable electricity,
- Carbon-neutral natural gas
- Solar energy systems
- Other energy-efficiency products.
And on top of that, the company is a founding member of the Conscious Capitalism Columbus chapter, rated one of the Best Places to Work, and is deeply committed to social impact, including becoming net zero by 2040.
Most importantly, JadeTrack shares IGS Energy’s vision for a more sustainable energy future and the company’s spirit of innovation.
“Our goal of becoming net zero by 2040 means that over the next 20 years, we will work to reduce the direct and indirect emissions from our operations and products as much as possible and offset any remaining emissions through the purchase of carbon offsets.”Scott White, CEO at IGS Energy
