The climate emergency is urging our economies to become net zero carbon. Since the Paris Agreement in 2015, national governments, regions and organisations have announced their net zero carbon goals. The scientific community and a growing number of committed stakeholders and businesses have helped to identify the actions that must be taken.  This feature explains how ENGIE is helping businesses achieve their net zero carbon transition.

Reduce your scope 3 emissions and achieve carbon neutrality

On average, 90% of a company's carbon footprint comes from scope 3 emissions from its value chain. Although high, these emissions are still underestimated in sustainable development reports. As organisations turn to the scientific community to help them make decisions, they are realising the urgency with which they must adapt their activities in the face of climate disturbances and risks.

Solutions & business cases… decarbonization in action

Green PPAs, renewables and green hydrogen, energy efficiency, recovering waste heat, etc. All our decarbonization solutions.


"By 2030, our solutions may have helped our customers avoid more than 45 million tonnes of CO2 emissions by stepping up their decarbonization processes." 


PPAs decarbonize industry and communities

Intended for companies and communities, this medium or long-term contract allows the purchase of renewable energy at a predefined and stable price. What is it? PPA stands for Power Purchase Agreement. We explain in detail. Read more


How the mining industry is using green hydrogen to reduce its carbon footprint

Can green hydrogen help to significantly reduce the mining industry's carbon footprint? Yes, because it can be used as a fuel for heavy-duty vehicles, an energy source for generating "hydrogen electricity" to power production processes, and a raw material for making explosives. It has caught the interest of the mining industry for all these reasons, and ENGIE is strategically placed to advise and support industry players. Read more


Why has Big Tech chosen us?

Amazon, Microsoft and Google are all customers of ENGIE, primarily through CPPAs - long-term renewable energy supply contracts for clients. When it comes to decarbonisation, tech giants are leading the way. Why have they chosen ENGIE? Why are we a preferred partner? Two Group experts explain all!

"Not all our customers have the necessary funds to make the necessary investments. So we finance their facilities, which we install and then operate and maintain. This comprehensive solution has a faster and more conclusive impact on the performance of their systems."

ENGIE is also driving its own energy transition

As a leader in low-carbon energy systems, ENGIE has set itself the goal of being Net Zero Carbon by 2045, across its three scopes:


How ENGIE, a leading energy player, is achieving its net zero carbon goals

Decarbonizing the energy sector is a challenge like no other: energy production is responsible for nearly ¾ of global greenhouse gas emissions. And reaching the Net Zero Carbon target requires a complete transformation of the energy system which drives the global economy. Yet 80% of today's energy suppliers still depend on fossil fuels.
