Guided by its raison d’être “to act to accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy”, ENGIE continues to implement its strategies to become the leader in the carbon-neutral transition.
In February 2020, the Group defined 19 new objectives for 2030. These objectives are fully in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 set by the United Nations. ENGIE is committed to executing ethical and sustainable operations through careful consideration of human rights, communities, and the environment.
Here are some of the initiatives that we undertake:
- Installation of RO system
- Aligned with SDG 6: Water filtration devices were installed in Tamil Nadu that provide 50 litres of clean drinking water to the people
- Installation of solar LED streetlights
- Aligned with SDG 7: To improve the quality of life in the rural community of Telangana, ENGIE installed solar-powered lights on village roads
- Tree plantation – Aligned with SDG 15: 500 tree saplings were planted on all solar sites across India. This will offset 10,885Kg CO2 emissions annually
- School infrastructure support – Aligned with SDG 4: Supported 8 low-income primary schools with desks, benches, tube lights, cupboards, ceiling lights, fans, and water purifiers
- Covid care support – Aligned with SDG 3: The HSE team took multiple sessions to create awareness about the Covid-19 virus. ENGIE distributed ration packs in villages, and PPE kits and other covid care kits to local medical centres in Tamil Nadu
