Bluesource’s Matt Harmer on the Grand Teton
Since 2001, Bluesource has pioneered creative solutions to climate risk. We are passionate about the environment and create tailored sustainability strategies for private and public companies, nonprofits and governments.
For nearly 20 years, we have simplified and streamlined environmental action. Though our offerings have expanded along with environmental markets, three key services have always been the cornerstone of our business: facilitating transactions in environmental markets, strategic and tactical advisory services and capital formation.
In 1996, our founders began as pioneers in the emerging greenhouse gas markets, and Bluesource was formally organized in 2001. Today, we develop high quality environmental products from over 20 different technologies in over 100 locations, across the United States and Canada.
We are a strategic partner and advisor for some of the world’s largest companies, empowering them to take their next step toward environmental action. We provide access to the world’s leading environmental attribute platforms and guidance on how to navigate them. We are experts at putting capital to work in environmental and energy markets, having raised hundreds of millions of dollars of debt and equity. Bluesource is your connection to voluntary, compliance and pre-compliance carbon, renewable energy attribute, renewable natural gas and energy efficiency markets. We are a diverse team of industry experts who are dedicated to integrity and excellence. As a result, Bluesource has been voted Environmental Finance’s Best Project Developer (All North American Markets) and Best Offset Originator (California Markets) for six consecutive years.
We strive to improve the world by improving the environment. Collectively and individually, we have great expectations about the future; we are optimists. Although we embrace the reality that positive change requires significant effort and commitment, we genuinely believe we can and will make a better world.
By 2025, we desire to:
Provide new and innovative products and services each year that lower the cost and improve the effectiveness of positive environmental change.
Be a catalyst for environmental stewardship through our actions and our interactions with clients and strategic partners. We want to see all companies we work with place higher value on the environment in their corporate cultures by changing the way they do business.
See our climate-related projects reduce 500,000,000 tCO2e, aiding in limiting the global temperature increase to 1.5 °C.
Contribute our time and financial resources to at least one initiative per year that restores or preserves future generations’ enjoyment of the outdoors as currently threatened by environmental degradation.
Consistently increase our company’s sustainable competitive advantage and grow our stakeholder value.
These ideas are at the forefront of our actions, and we trust that you will find them evident in your business dealings with us.
Together, our team is united in its passion for environmental stewardship, integrity, relationships, professional conduct, living for something greater than ourselves and making a lasting impact on our local and global communities.
At Bluesource, we are proud of our diverse group of individuals from many cultures, backgrounds and worldviews. Together, we embrace creativity and strong work ethic while fostering a culture of collaboration and accountability.
In the marketplace, we value transparency and candor and seek to treat our clients and competitors as we would ourselves.
At the moment, we exclusively develop projects in the United States and Canada. You indicated that you’re located outside of our project focus area. For now, we’ll add you to our list of potential partners and you’ll be the first to hear when we expand outside of North America.
We'd love to tell you more about our projects.
