Faurecia, one of the world’s leading automotive technology companies, announced today that it has selected ENGIE to become a partner, supporting Faurecia in its commitment to reach CO2 neutrality for scopes 1 and 2 by 2025. Under this partnership, ENGIE, a world leader in low-carbon energy and services, will provide energy solutions to be deployed across 100+ Faurecia sites worldwide by mid-2022.
As the next step on Faurecia’s CO2 Neutrality journey, ENGIE will accompany Faurecia through the deployment of energy saving equipment & methodology solutions, enabling 15% reduction of site energy consumption out of a reference of around 600 GWh, representing ~30 kt CO2 emissions reduction every year. Reducing energy consumption by adopting innovative digital solutions for efficiency is in line with Faurecia’s CO2 Neutrality roadmap and particularly its « Use Less » approach.
Patrick Koller, Chief Executive Officer of Faurecia, said:
“Our Sustainability roadmap and in particular our CO2 Neutrality objectives are the reflection of our strong convictions that we have a responsibility to make a positive contribution to society and the planet as well as a strategic business initiative we are proud to drive. Initiating this partnership with ENGIE makes me very proud and will help us advance rapidly in this first major step of our ambition.”
Catherine MacGregor, Chief Executive Officer of ENGIE, added: “I am impressed by the speed and the scale at which Faurecia has decided to decarbonize its operations. Through an innovative approach jointly built by ENGIE Impact and Faurecia sustainability experts, we are proud to support Faurecia in its global carbon neutrality transition. With its four global business units - renewables, energy solutions, networks, thermal and energy supply - ENGIE is a leader in the transition to a carbon-neutral energy system and ideally positioned to be the preferred partner for global industrial groups.”
In addition to this first milestone of CO2 neutrality in scopes 1 and 2 in 2025, Faurecia is also targeting CO2 neutrality in controlled emissions by 2030 (scopes 1, 2 and most of scope 3, excluding emissions of vehicles equipped with Faurecia parts) and CO2 full neutrality in all scopes by 2050. These targets are aligned with the 1.5°C ambition of the Science Based Target initiative.
