What are the strengths of the current organization?

The creation of 24 geographical BUs contributed to lower significantly our center of gravity and to become more flexible and responsive to the needs of our customers and other stakeholders. This is all the more necessary as the energy world is becoming gradually decentralized. Thanks to this organization, we were fully able to capture the opportunities from the first wave of the Energy Transition pushed by States and Central Governments, and we are now preparing the forthcoming wave pulled by industries and local authorities.

How will this organization evolve in 2019?

The fundamentals of our successful decentralized organization, which puts the client at the center, are to be maintained. However, in order to improve the transversal performance and support the local teams, four Global Business Lines have been created as of May 1st – Client Solutions, Renewables, Gas and Power Networks and Thermal. These Business Lines will be made of small teams and will have a global view of their activity. With that, they can deploy the Group strategy, prioritize the allocation of resources and establish transversal programs to improve performance.
