Our Team

Our team is proudly international, and committed to remaining so. Crossing borders in every sense, we are dedicated to strong, cost-effective, sustainable energy development – wherever we happen to go.

The Greenstorc team is deeply committed to four principles:

  • Profits flowing first to local shareholders.
  • Contributing to society both short and long term, rather than just ‘extracting’.
  • Promoting diversity of staff, partnerships and community projects.
  • Sharing knowledge and expertise within communities rather than imposing ideas and structures upon them.
