Responsible Business & Environment

As an industry leader, ENGIE takes all aspects of Responsible Business (RB) seriously. Our purpose is to 'make zero carbon happen' for UK businesses and communities. 
Our energy and services capabilities play a leading role in the UK’s transition towards a more secure and sustainable future. We are dedicated to developing new sustainable services delivering low-carbon, energy-efficient places and spaces. This puts us at the forefront of providing sustainable solutions to our customers.

We believe that acting responsibly across our business through socially and environmentally positive contributions will help us to achieve financial sustainability. Indeed, the performance of our business is measured not just in terms of financial metrics, but also through wider social and environmental achievements.

Targets & governance

Environmental and social responsibility is governed at the very highest level within ENGIE at our Board. ENGIE has also developed a Divisional and Sector based Committee system which works to ensure that divisional and sector strategy is delivered.

Divisional Committees have been created to support, review and embed responsible business practices across UK BU operations and to meet divisional targets, Our Responsible Business Charter and other requirements from ENGIE Group. 

All employees at ENGIE are expected to include a mandatory goal relating to Health & Safety and Responsible Business as part of the annual objective setting exercise. This ensures that employees think about how to embed responsible business practices in their roles.

To ensure we deliver on our commitments, ENGIE has developed a set of objectives and targets to measure our performance. An annual report on our progress against these can be found on the links below:

Scrutiny Board

The ENGIE Responsible Business Charter is uniquely overseen by an independent Scrutiny Board, chaired by Lord Kerslake, supported by the Centre for Governance and Scrutiny - a national charity which supports scrutiny excellence in the public, private & voluntary sectors.

ENGIE provides information on how we perform against the RB Charter, and the Scrutiny Board meet quarterly to review progress and publish an independent annual report, with the outcomes and recommendations publicly disclosed.

All annual reports to date can be found on the links below:

ENGIE are certified to ISO 14001:2015 , ISO 9001:2015 and OHSAS 18001.  We also hold ISO 50001 for a number of our offices.  Our integrated management system outlines our approach to managing our environmental impact across our operations.

Our Circular Economy Strategy provides an overarching commitment and approach towards resource recovery and waste management. This will be achieved through the investigation of closed loop opportunities across ENGIE’s business lifecycle through business development, mobilisation, delivery and demobilisation – working closely with customers and supply chain partners. 

Air Quality

As a leading energy and services company ENGIE has a strong commitment towards decarbonisation for 2020 and beyond. ENGIE recognises the role we have to play in improving air quality through the transformation of our fleet of approximately 3000 vehicles, our investment in green mobility services and the engagement of our employees.
