Beta Parent Company Celebrates Carbon Negative Status

We are pleased to announce that Beta Engineering and the Crest Industries Family of Companies are carbon negative for all scope 1 and 2 emissions.

“Crest has sustainably managed our timberland holdings in the southeastern United States for years, promoting healthy forests and wildlife and offsetting our carbon emissions,” says Kenneth Robison, CEO and owner of Crest Industries. “We are now analyzing and reporting hard data to increase accountability and transparency within our organization and clearly articulating our operations and sustainability goals to better serve our customers and partners.”

“Beta recognizes the importance of protecting the environment for our customers and communities,” says Brad Fontenot, President of Beta Engineering. “In addition to interconnecting more than 4,000MW of renewable energy to the grid in recent decades, we help protect plant and animal species through mitigation measures on our project sites.”

Crest partnered with third-party firms in an emissions identification process and sequestration calculation to define our corporate carbon footprint for 2021 and establish a program management plan to guide our future operations and reporting. Our findings show we annually sequester 30 times more greenhouse gases (GHG) than the Crest Family of Companies directly emits into the environment. The amount of GHG that Crest sequesters (after accounting for our scope 1 and 2 emissions) is equivalent to the annual GHG emissions of more than 36,000 homes, according to EPA calculations.

“Just because we are carbon negative now doesn’t mean we will stop pursuing greater levels of sustainability and corporate responsibility,” says Matt Purser, Chief Operating Officer of Industrial Services and Distribution for Crest Industries. “Our company is built on a spirit of questioning the status quo to find new ways to improve, so we want to have plans in place to expand other initiatives, community involvement, safety, and more. Our work isn’t finished yet.”
