Strategy and objectives
Environmental and societal responsibility is a key driver of ENGIE’s corporate strategy. A global leader in the energy market, the Group’s ambition is to supply the goods and services necessary to life and to contribute to a global sustainability dynamic adapted to climate and demographic changes.
Identifying growth opportunities
Sustainable business aims to identify and transform environmental and societal problems into development opportunities that benefit all people and limit the consumption of natural resources.
Managing non-financial risk is the second key in our sustainability strategy, which treats issues such as the environment, the local and international acceptability of our activities, health and safety, human resources management and ethics.
Value creation and sustainability
Through the dual effort of developing these business opportunities and optimizing non-financial risk management, ENGIE creates value not only for its shareholders, but also for the entire community of its stakeholders.
To implement this strategy, ENGIE outlined its environmental and societal responsibility policy in 2014. To stimulate its efforts in this area, the Group has set an ambitious set of non-financial objectives, including quantified targets and specific deadlines. The results recorded so far serve to substantiate ENGIE’s commitment, as well as the relevance of the actions it has undertaken.
Sustainable Investment Criteria
10 sustainable investment criteria are measured, analyzed and evaluated for each new investment project presented to the ENGIE Commitments Committee. These criteria cover ethics, carbon emissions (volume and financial impact), energy efficiency, environmental management of ecosystems, human resources, health and safety, local purchasing, social impact and cooperation with stakeholders.
