Sustainability at the Core of Our Development

As part of our purpose to shape a sustainable future, ENGIE North America is committed to ensuring viable, just and balanced development of zero-carbon generation assets. ENGIE North America leverages the Corporate Social Responsibility Matrix to evaluate investment opportunities and help guide future projects based on Group guidelines.

The matrix provides 12 criteria to gauge a broad range of items, including environmental management, stakeholder engagement, and ethics and human rights.  This process has been applied to many different types of projects already, including renewable generation, cogeneration, and district heating and cooling systems, among others.
