With its strategic Engage 2025 plan, Orange is aiming to reduce its direct CO2 emissions by 30% compared with 2015, thanks to an energy mix made up of 50% of renewables. In the longer term, Orange is aiming for zero net carbon emissions by 2040.
By meeting these targets, the Group intends to contribute to the energy transition and to the economic development of the regions that will host the new solar facilities.
Orange has entered a Green Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with ENGIE in order to meet its targets. These long-term renewable energy supply contracts decarbonise energy consumption by using renewable energy that is reliable and certified at a controlled cost.
This green PPA is one of the ten biggest contracts signed worldwide in 2021, providing for the purchase of 51 MWc of green electricity (Green PPA Top Global offtakers, Source Bloomberg).
