CEO of ENGIE Impact Mathias Lelievre to headline at The Hub Live; Other ENGIE Impact leaders to present and moderate discussions to share best practices, new solutions for climate change and corporate decarbonization.
New York, NY – September 7, 2023 – ENGIE Impact, a leader in sustainability transformation solutions, is returning to Climate Week NYC 2023, taking place September 17-24. ENGIE Impact’s CEO Mathias Lelievre will headline as other senior executives collaborate with climate leaders from around the world to accelerate organizational transformation in response to climate change.
During Climate Week, ENGIE's presence and engagement will span across all aspects:
Over the last six years, ENGIE Impact has helped its clients collectively save nearly $1 billion through reduced energy usage. At the same time, they reduced GHG emissions equivalent to that of nearly 900,000 passenger vehicles operated for a year.
As part of the week-long activities, Lelievre will be one of the keynote speakers. He will speak about corporate decarbonization, emphasizing that incremental changes can lead to big successes and cautioning against the inactivity that can result when organizations attempt to effect change all at once.
Diego Ibarra, Executive Managing Director, ENGIE Impact Americas, will host an executive roundtable discussion on Monday, September 18 from 7:30 a.m. - 9 a.m. ET to discuss the “42x7 Challenge,” to reduce emissions by 42 percent by 2030. Supporting discussions will address tackling structural barriers to decarbonization, strategy implementation, implementing beyond energy efficiency and electrification, and maintaining focus on value creation.
The discussions will be supported by primary research from ENGIE Impact as part of its forthcoming 2024 Net Zero Report. This report, now in its fourth year, surveys more than 500 corporate decarbonization decision-makers around the world and across sectors — covering a wide range of topics around strategy, execution, data analysis, digital integration, financing, and more — and offers year-over-year insights into progress achieved and barriers holding back corporate climate action.
