EverGen purchased three facilities in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, utilizing its operation in greenhouse capturing. The clean energy initiative has already been getting immense support from the federal government. The company has been expanding its footprints across North America to turn local waste into green fuel.
EverGen’s strategic plans
EverGen targets to spend around C$ 200 million by 2023 to beef up its operations across Canada. The company management opted to go public due to the rising demand for ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) stocks among investors. Its current market cap is C$ 61 million.
The company has witnessed a surge in tenders for its environmental services from other enterprises. It signed a 20-year contract to supply retail gas to natural gas company FortisBC in July this year. Before that EverGen has been concluding a methane-capture task at its Abbotsford processing site. It is also constructing a project at the Sea to Sky Soils site in British Columbia.

In the same line, EverGen has an opportunity to raise more funding from public agencies to execute its clean energy and carbon footprint reduction plans across Canada.
