Motorized traffic is on the increase, especially in urban areas, resulting in economic and environmental costs relating to the considerable urban density. By connecting road infrastructures to communication technologies and limiting the use of individual means of transport, urban congestion can be reduced.
Adoption of cleaner fuels as an alternative to oil (electricity, natural gas, hydrogen) is key to improving air quality in cities. These fuels now constitute solutions for greener travel while being more competitive and more comfortable for users.
Following the launch of the #ENGIEHarmonyProject campaign in April this year, ENGIE is unveiling a new season of projects with 3 videos: ENGIE x Niteroi, ENGIE x EVBox
The transport of people or goods is a very energy-intensive sector, and leads to the rejection of a significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. France has seen a 30% growth in freight transport since 1990, driven in particular by the development of e-commerce. 90% of transport currently take place by road. Improving urban logistics to make them smarter while encouraging the use of greener fuels would optimize freight transport and reduce emissions.

Optimizing the use of existing infrastructures must correspond to changes in needs as well as limited natural and budgetary resources. Through smart management of transport networks and improved access of mass transit systems, journeys can be made less expensive and less harmful to the environment.
With the growth of urbanization by 2050, we will have 2.4 billion new inhabitants and 2/3 of us with live in the city, automobile transport will almost double (an increase of 185%) and passenger kilometers almost 1.5 times higher (140%). The consequences are already alarming today, on multiple levels – economic (urban congestion costs Americans more than $160 billion and congestion due to freight traffic costs Europeans 1% of GDP), human (3 million people die worldwide each year because of atmospheric pollution and 1.25 million people die in road accidents), social (26% of under-30s in France say they have had to reject a job because of travel or transportation difficulties) and environmental (23% of CO2 emissions are caused by transport and 60% of petroleum products are used by transport).
On Monday 10 September 2018, ENGIE successfully launched a new senior bond issue of €1 billion in two benchmark size tranches:
