Enviva is the world’s largest wood pellet producer, with the capacity to produce more than 2 million metric tons in 2016. We manufacture pellets at six facilities in the American South, supplying electric utilities in the United Kingdom and continental Europe.
Enviva produces pellets with responsible, sustainable practices that protect American forests by adhering to the standards of multiple sustainable forestry organizations, standards against which we are independently audited and certified. We are developing a proprietary “track and trace” system that will enable us to identify the source of every truckload of wood we use. And we recently launched the Enviva Forest Conservation Fund, a 10-year, $5 million initiative designed to conserve thousands of acres of bottomland forests in Virginia and North Carolina.
Enviva Partners LP completed its initial public offering in April 2015 and is the only publicly-traded entity devoted solely to producing wood pellets. Our industry-leading experience and expertise, and our strong financial foundation, enable us to help meet the global demand for sources of sustainable, low-carbon energy.
