Sustainability transformation is at the core of what we provide to our clients. We also know it is a fluid, agile process. We can’t achieve transformation for our clients if we don’t work from within to set bold goals and demonstrate action when it comes to our own corporate sustainability.
We strive to set tough, data-informed goals and take meaningful action to reach them, faster. We’re doing our part to lower our energy and water use, divert more waste from landfills, improve operational efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint. Transparency on our performance is important to us as well, so that you can learn from our challenges and our successes in our corporate sustainability journey.
As ENGIE Impact continues to evolve as a global company, we will continue to ensure that we set goals that will be the most meaningful for our planet, our people and our prosperity and update our progress as we move forward towards our corporate sustainability goals.

We are challenged to continually look at our own sustainability transformation and consider what urgent actions we can take to combat climate change, its impacts, and further reduce our own resource consumption from within. By making this commitment, we can better serve our clients on their own sustainability journeys.
Mathias Lelièvre Chief Executive Officer
In the coming months, we will continue to communicate on our comprehensive Corporate Sustainability Program. As signatories of the United Nations Global Compact, we are working to design a program that will have the greatest impact on Sustainable Development Goals. Through this process, we aim to further integrate sustainable development across our enterprise management processes, systems and culture. Here is a glimpse into several critical areas of focus.
To enable our corporate purpose, ‘Make Sustainability Happen Today,’ we are committed to building a governance structure that drives global outcomes with local relevance. As a wholly owned subsidiary of ENGIE, our transparent business practices fully align with global policies, practices and reporting.
In line with ENGIE’s Human Rights policies, we actively support the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights. We will continue to raise awareness of human rights issues within our workforce and structure our supply chains to identify risks and ensure our partners demonstrate excellence in upholding these values.
Our greatest impact will come from reducing emissions across our value chain, spanning our suppliers, employees and our significant decarbonization work with clients. Within our supply chain, we will implement new policies and training to minimize air travel, strengthen sustainability criteria in supplier selection, and reduce emissions of information and communication and technology (ICT) systems.
We know that a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment with different perspectives creates stronger and more innovative solutions. Our program will target addressing inequality in society, fostering diversity in the workplace and advancing environmental justice. We recognize the significant work we must do in this area and the meaningful actions we will take to advance these critical outcomes.
To succeed in our mission, we must provide a safe, healthy environment in which our employees can learn and thrive. Health & Safety are deeply integrated into the design of our work environments as well as the promotion of a strong work-life balance. We invest in our employees, including new programs and tools to drive sustainability literacy, exchange ideas, and initiate projects at every office location.
We will empower employees to be sustainability champions in the office, at home and in their communities by introducing programs and opportunities that align with their passions and skills. We are researching global community giving programs and designing new options to enable employees to give back with their time, talent or money.
