Standards of CSR reporting

By ENGIE - 20 July 2018 - 17:45

Since the creation of its CSR reporting in 2000, ENGIE has been inspired by the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) standard. It has evolved its CSR reporting according to the entry into force of national, European or international regulations while constantly making this tool an operational management tool.

TCFD Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures


ENGIE is committed to more comprehensive communication on the impact that climate change may have on its activities and how it intends to take this into account to adapt its activities. An internal task force has been created to adapt the reporting to the TCFD recommendations, in particular with a five-year assessment of regulatory, technological, market, reputation and physical risks.


ENGIE supports the Global Compact


The Global Compact was established in 2000 by the United Nations following an initiative by its Secretary-General inviting companies to act responsibly and actively participate in sustainable development. It invites companies to adopt, support and apply in their sphere of influence 10 fundamental principles in terms of Human Rights, labor rights, the environment and the fight against corruption. In 2017, more than 13,000 members from 170 countries joined. Gérard Mestrallet, former Chairman and CEO of ENGIE, chaired the French network of the Global Compact until 2013.


The 10 principles are the following


Human Rights


  • Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed Human Rights
  • Principle 2 : Businesses should make sure that they are not complicit in Human Rights abuses.


International Labour standards


  • Principle 3 : Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining
  • Principle 4: Businesses should uphold he elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour
  • Principle 5: Businesses should uphold the effective abolition of child labour
  • Principle 6: Businesses should uphold the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.



  • Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges
  • Principle 8 : Businesses should undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility.
  • Principle 9 : Businesses should encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
