ENGIE’s purpose statement was co-created through a robust consultative process with the Group’s employees, clients, partners and shareholders, as well as representatives of the civil society. Its aim is to rally all of ENGIE’s internal and external stakeholders around a shared aim, one that is responsible and committed.


At its 26 February meeting, the Group’s Board of Directors approved the following wording:


ENGIE’s purpose (“raison d’être”) is to act to accelerate the transition towards a carbon-neutral economy, through reduced energy consumption and more environmentally-friendly solutions. The purpose brings together the company, its employees, its clients and its shareholders, and reconciles economic performance with a positive impact on people and the planet. ENGIE’s actions are assessed in their entirety and over time.


Claire Waysand, Interim Chief Executive Officer, said:


“With this purpose statement, we are committing to a long term perspective and the transition towards carbon neutrality. Our Group has halved its greenhouse gas emissions over the last few years and we are striving every day to develop service offerings that reduce the carbon footprints of cities, local authorities and companies, for the benefit of all.”
