The fight against global warming is one of the major challenges of the 21st century. This phenomenon, caused by greenhouse gas (GHG), has many effects: heavier rainfall in some regions, devastating drought in others, and changes in the ecosystems. These disruptions are radically transforming the living conditions of populations all over the world.
In view of its activities, ENGIE has a responsibility and a very important role to play in the energy transition. Ecology must accompany the emergence of a world with more respect for our planet, inhabited by 9 billion people.
The Group faces a dual challenge: to respond to the constant growth of the world energy requirement (by 2050, the energy consumption per inhabitant is expected to double), and to encourage the development of high energy efficiency solutions, both within the company and with our customers, to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
Conservation of natural resources.
The population’s exponential growth, the desire to improve living standards and the expansion of service needs weigh heavily on natural resources such as water and biodiversity.
Water for energy
In 2030, the world will have to tackle a 40% water shortage with respect to its requirements. However, water plays a central role in the energy sector: for the production of electricity (hydroelectric power, heat and renewable energy sources), gas and oil, and for the provision of energy services.
At the heart of climate changes
Water, an essential resource for life and energy, is at the centre of the changes in our climate, and also plays an important role in biodiversity. ENGIE considers the conservation of resources and biological diversity to be a major challenge at the centre of its strategy, aimed at contributing to sustainable growth.
ENGIE is committed to the production of sustainable energy, limiting the emission of CO2 into the atmosphere day by day.
