(PRESS RELEASE) LA DÉFENSE, France, 30-Jan-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — ENGIE’s CDP disclosure for 2018 has been recognized by the environmental impact non-profit organization Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). ENGIE has been given an “A” score by CDP, which is the highest in the CDP Climate Change Assessment.

This is the third year in a row for ENGIE to be named a global leader on Corporate Climate action by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

The recognition is based on ENGIE’s actions during 2008 on cutting emissions, mitigating climate risks and contributing to the development of a low-carbon economy.

ENGIE has already reduced its direct CO2 emissions by 26% at the end of 2017 as compared to 2016. Additionally, it has also reduced its ratio of emissions from energy production by 18% as compared to 2012, bringing the Group significantly closer to its reduction target of – 20% by 2020.

ENGIE CEO Isabelle Kocher:

CDP’s recognition of ENGIE’s actions in favor of corporate climate actions for the 3rd time in a row, rewards the Group’s transformation plan launched in 2016. ENGIE successfully pursued its strategic repositioning to lead the energy transition and we firmly believe that it will be achieved through harmonious development towards a world that is increasingly decarbonized, decentralized and digitalized.
