Net Zero Carbon
Our aim, presented by our CEO Catherine MacGregor at the Strategic Update on 18 May 2021, it to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2045. To meet this challenge, we are refocusing on our four core businesses: renewable energy, client solutions, networks, and thermal production and energy supply. Meanwhile, we are accelerating growth in renewables with a target of 80 GW of installed capacity by 2030.
Our corporate purpose guides the actions of our 170,000 employees, who are all committed to accelerating the energy transition. Fully aware of the climate emergency, ENGIE employees commit day after day to innovating, designing, creating and delivering low-carbon solutions to our clients. For this campaign, some of our employees wanted to demonstrate their commitment by involving their children in the film.
Every day counts
The climate emergency is at the heart of all current concerns, and, at ENGIE, we want to reassert our role as an accelerator, to lead the energy transition. We know that every day counts. In fact, our action has been in line with the fight against climate change. Now, more than ever before, we are cutting our carbon footprint: 52% reduction in CO2 emissions in electricity production compared with 2012. In 2020, we helped our clients avoid emissions of 21Mt CO2e. And we're not stopping there! We are stepping up our decarbonisation goal by following a well below 2 degrees climate trajectory to target 45Mt CO2e avoided by our clients by 2030.
By combining its efforts and expertise, particularly alongside its employees, partners and stakeholders, ENGIE is adopting a collaborative approach to lead the transition. Within the company, by introducing new ways of working. Outside the company, by supporting businesses in their decarbonisation process and business model transformation, through a partnership approach.
