Our mission

 

As a certified B-Corp, Modern's mission is affordable, reliable, sustainable energy for all.

It’s an exciting time in Modern’s history
and in the history of the world.

We believe trillions of dollars will be invested in the next few decades to enable the transition to a net-zero carbon economy and our businesses are on the front lines of an economic opportunity only seen once in a century.

Climate experts agree - decisions made in the next decade about how and where we get our energy will alter the course of history, by either mitigating or exacerbating the impacts of climate change.

To achieve the impact we aspire to, we are building a ‘hundred-year company’ with an unrivaled environment where exceptional and kind people can make an outsized and lasting impact on climate change.

Core values



We believe top talent thrive when surrounded by mission-aligned peers working in an environment that retains the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship.
