CSR performance and rating

Guided by its purpose to “act to accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy”, ENGIE continues to implement its strategy to become the leader in the energy and climate transition. In February 2020, the Group defined 19 new objectives for 2030 in order to monitor its CSR performance as closely as possible. These objectives are fully in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations for 2030.

New 2030 CSR objectives

These new 2030 CSR objectives complement the six 2020 CSR objectives that were established in 2016 to materialize the commitments and support the Group's CSR policy. The following tables show the Group's CSR objectives and their contribution to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Among the 19 new CSR objectives, the results of 7 indicators (rank 1) will be published and commented each year at final year results, the other 12 being communicated in our integrated report.

Contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


ENGIE has thoroughly reviewed its contribution to the UN Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals and their respective targets.


In order to identify the SDGs to which ENGIE makes a key contribution, the Group has studied the contribution of each of the issues in its materiality matrix to the various SDGs and their targets. 

  • The Group's contribution to an SDG is key when at least one fundamental / decisive / / major issue of the Group contributes to the SDG and its associated targets and when this contribution is monitored thanks to an indicator and a Group objective.
  • The Group's contribution to an SDG is significant when at least one of the Group's material issues contributes to the SDG and this contribution is driven by a Group commitment.



Non-financial ratings

ENGIE sees sustainable development as contributing to the Group’s ability to create long-term value through the joint development of sustainable business and appropriate management of non-financial risks. Non-financial ratings agencies focus the majority of their audit on how companies manage these risks and possible controversies arising from it. Their CSR performance rating is not only a measure of external recognition, but also provides essential guidance for the process of improving how companies manage these CSR risks.

Standards of CSR reporting

From the creation of its CSR reporting in 2000, ENGIE was inspired by the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) standards to demonstrate the sustainability of its strategy. It updated  its CSR reporting with the entry into force of national, European or international regulations, constantly making sure to make this tool an operational management and communication tool for its challenges.
