Sustainability transformation is at ENGIE Impact’s core and we know that we can’t achieve transformation for our clients unless we set bold goals and demonstrate action when it comes to our own corporate sustainability. Two years ago, we set science-based goals and began a journey that leveraged our own sustainability experts and engaged our stakeholders to drive the greatest impact. As a leader in sustainability transformation and emboldened by the ambition of our parent, ENGIE, to become the leader in the energy and climate transition, we challenged ourselves to achieve carbon negative as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, which called for energy efficiency, science-based reduction, and changing our ways of working.
Today, ENGIE Impact is officially carbon negative—we now avoid or remove more carbon from the atmosphere than we emit as of the end of 2021. While there is still work to be done to achieve global water balance and zero waste for our organization, this is a terrific accomplishment in a short time, one milestone on our way to making sustainability happen today.
