NEW YORK, New York

Environ, an energy management company specializing in sustainability consulting services and carbon reduction services, is excited to announce that it has acquired Best Practice Energy, (BPE). BPE is an important industry innovator whose data-driven, progressive approach to energy procurement strategies and management drives significant value for clients. BPE currently works with leading manufacturing and technology companies, healthcare organizations and a wide range of commercial enterprises. BPE shares Environ’s passion for renewable energy and sustainability.

BPE brings a wealth of information and technology that will be incorporated into Environ’s service offerings over the coming months. Excited to welcome the BPE team into theirs and build value together, Environ will be working closely with the Best Practice Energy team in the coming weeks to ensure a smooth transition for both companies and their clients. BPE will remain intact as a division within Environ, continuing to help clients achieve their energy goals and commitments while embracing the global shift toward cleaner energy sources and greater energy efficiency.  This acquisition helps expand and strengthen Environ’s reach within the market to provide even more comprehensive solutions.

“As Environ grows in scope and scale, it’s vital that we increase our ability to reach new client segments while continuing to provide optimal services to existing clients. BPE has developed best-in-class approaches to managing energy spend while continuously tracking and serving the growing needs of its clientele,” said Mark Mininberg, CEO of Environ. “The acquisition provides both a top field operation and proprietary IT that we will deploy across a range of related services, including commercial energy procurement and efficiency, clean energy development, carbon tracking and reduction strategies and ESG services.”

“From our first meetings together, our teams realized that BPE and Environ shared similar visions for how to accelerate our success through innovation and, most of all, by working hard to produce positive outcomes for our clients,” said Bryan Yagoobian, founder and president of the Best Practice Energy division at Environ, adding, “Our long-standing commitment to innovation and service is shared by everyone in the combined Environ organization. We are just getting started in terms of driving the energy transition.” The acquisition was made possible with support from 424 Capital, a growth capital investor that works in partnership with founders and management teams to accelerate and scale for long-term growth.

Environ is motivated to accelerate their efforts towards a cleaner, more sustainable future for all.
