I am honoured to further grow and lead FincoEnergies to a decarbonisation partner for a Better World. We will further build as a frontrunner upon this strong foundation by expanding our core product and service offerings including low-carbon fuels and carbon credits into new geographies and exploring new energy vectors such as biomass, bio-methane and electricity.”
