Fitting hand-in-glove with the 2020 Earth Day theme of “Climate Action”, the report details action ENGIE North America is taking, together with customers and communities, to achieve a zero-carbon future. The report outlines:
- Impressive statistics, like:
– a record-setting year of building nearly 500 MW of renewable capacity with 2GW currently in construction,
– a 22.4% reduction of our direct CO2 emissions since 2017
– women account for 38% of the ENGIE North America Executive Committee
- Explanations of our main Corporate and Cities Power Purchasing Agreements (PPA)s like the ones with Walmart and The City of Philadelphia, and unique client relationships that span decades, such as those with Ohio State University, the University of Iowa and more.
- Several customer and partner interviews that discuss ENGIE North America’s collaboration and solution-oriented approach to achieve client energy goals.
This report is a powerful illustration of ENGIE North America’s mission in the zero-carbon transition by accelerating the deployment of clean, affordable, innovative and resilient energy solutions.
“The crisis we are going through must not make us forget the other critical global challenge, climate change. Recovery will have to be green, sustainable and inclusive,” said Gwenaelle Avice-Huet, Executive Vice-President of ENGIE and CEO of ENGIE North America. “At ENGIE we are fully mobilized to make zero-carbon transition accessible for our customers. We look forward to continuing our role as a trusted partner for clients and communities as we take action together to fight climate change.”
In addition to the focus on sustainability, the report also outlines actions ENGIE North America is taking in diversity and inclusion, such as the company’s commitment to have women in half of all management positions by 2030; a commitment to responsible purchasing; an outline of education institution relationships; and more.
