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.
ENGIE voluntarily appoints its Statutory Auditors to express a reasonable assurance opinion on a selection of social and environmental indicators.
Ordinance 2017-1180 dated July 19, 2017 and Decree 2017-1265 dated August 9, 2017 transposed European Directive 2014/95/EU as regards disclosure of non-financial information by companies (the “CSR Directive”) via the Non-Financial Statement (NFS).
ENGIE is committed to communicating more about the impact that climate change could have on its activities and how it intends to take them into account to adapt its activity and strategy.
An internal task force has been created to adapt the reporting to TCFD recommendations, in particular the assessment within 5 years of regulatory, technological, market, reputation and physical risks.
The Global Compact was put in place in 2000 by the United Nations following an initiative by its Secretary General urging businesses to act responsibly and take an active part 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, environment and fight against corruption.
ENGIE is one of the founding members of the French network of the Global Compact. The Group has published each year since 2010 its Progress Report in the “Global Compact Advanced” category. Information relating to the 21 criteria required to be in the “Global Compact Advanced” category can be viewed online directly on the Global Compact website.
