Sustainability Strategy in Action

The data-informed goals we have set are rooted in science and align with mitigation pathways recommended by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). We are also emboldened by the ambition of our parent, ENGIE, to become the leader in the energy and climate transition by setting wide-reaching goals in a way that reconciles economic, social and environmental performance. However, setting goals is just the first step. Transformation requires immediate action, so we have set short timelines to achieve these goals. In our transformation, we will shape new markets, leverage our own sustainability experts and capabilities, and engage an ecosystem of stakeholders to drive the greatest impact across our employees, communities, suppliers and clients.

Goal #1

Carbon Negative by 2021

As a service organization, ENGIE Impact’s carbon footprint is relatively small. But as a leader in sustainability transformation, our approach to our own decarbonization journey must drive leading-edge sustainability practices. We lead by example, so regardless of the size of our footprint, we seek to reduce our emissions internally as quickly and cost-effectively as possible through energy efficiency and changing our ways of working. But we know that we must go further, faster.

Goal #2

Water Balance by 2023

Access to clean, sustainable water sources is essential to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. Protecting and managing this resource is a priority for ENGIE Impact and an essential part of our corporate sustainability strategy. While managing carbon is a global issue, managing our water footprint is a local one. Therefore, we will work to understand the increasingly urgent water risks in communities where we live and work. Our ambition is to not only be more efficient in our water consumption but restore and replenish watersheds that supply our own local communities. Our goal is to balance our water footprint in the United States by 2021 and internationally by 2023.

Goal #3

Zero Waste by 2023

Waste diversion is a critical component of our sustainability strategy. Solid waste landfills are the third-largest source of human-related methane emissions, which are even more potent than GHG emissions. Across more than 20 locations globally, ENGIE Impact will minimize our own waste generation, maximize circularity, and engage the vast array of markets to increase diversion in order to achieve zero waste. We will achieve this goal by leveraging our expertise in waste characterizations, zero waste roadmaps and analytics to create a data-driven understanding of how waste is generated and how it can be diverted away from the landfill – the same data-rich tools we apply to helping our clients transition to more circular operations.
