Renewable Energy Group Inc. announced May 16 the issuance of its 2021 environmental, social and corporate-governance (ESG) report. As the world transitions to clean-energy solutions, REG says it plays a critical role in the advancement of decarbonization of liquid fuels.

“At the core of what we do is our shared purpose to create a cleaner world with a focus on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon footprint, for now and for the future,” said CJ Warner, REG president and CEO. “This motivation continues to drive our sustainable operations and deliver the clean, high-performing fuels that benefit both our customers and our planet.”
