Achieving growth through Planet, People, and Profit

At ENGIE, our purpose is accelerating the transition toward a carbon-neutral economy through reduced energy consumption and more environmentally-friendly solutions. This purpose brings together the company, its employees, clients, and shareholders, and connects economic performance with a positive impact on people and the planet.

We are convinced that the common good is good for business. Our role as a leader in the carbon-neutral transition is to show that focusing on the planet and people creates long-term value, and combining performance and profitability with the common good is possible.

This belief – that social and ecological performance are just as important as traditional financial performance – is at the core of our strategy to pioneer the zero carbon transition. The three Ps – planet, people, and profit – are the fundamental ways in which we illustrate that commitment.

  • For the planet, we consider the climate change emergency in all business activities.
  • For the people, we take into account the wellbeing of our employees and the impact on companies, supplies, communities, and society as a whole into the company’s choices.
  • For profit, we aim to be the world leader in the zero carbon energy transition, helping both our company and our customers become more profitable through greater efficiency and lower costs.

ENGIE is Shaping the Carbon-Neutral Transition

ENGIE is working to accelerate sustainable energy solutions in North America with simplified strategies that deliver guaranteed outcomes. These programs give customers the ability to focus resources on core business priorities, achieving capital flexibility with minimal balance sheet impact while reaching infrastructure, efficiency, renewable, and sustainable objectives with greater predictability in energy costs.


Our first priority is to track and measure the carbon footprint of our operations and the emissions we help our customers avoid through efficiency services and renewable energy assets."
