Today is #SustainabilityDay, and we would like to remind everyone of the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and how ENGIE aligns with these goals. In 2015, the United Nations established 17 SDGs. These goals help to establish global partnerships and provide a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity. They also encompass all facets of sustainability – people, the planet, and economic prosperity. ENGIE aligns with 12 of the SDGs with our actions, products, and services. We represent SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and SDG 13 (Climate Action) through our 2030 Group Objectives and our Purpose. We act to accelerate the transition towards a carbon-neutral world, through reduced energy consumption and more environmentally friendly solutions, reconciling economic performance with a positive impact on people and the planet.

Today, we celebrate #WomensEqualityDay, honoring all the remarkable women of ENGIE and across the world. Here at ENGIE North America Inc. we make it a priority to create an inclusive workplace environment where employees are empowered and inspired. Since 2008, we have strived for this by implementing Women in Networking (WIN), a company-wide organization that enhances the recruitment of women, advocates for policies related to a better work life environment and strives towards full implementation of the Fifty-Fifty Project. This project is the first step to an all-inclusive, non-discriminating company by 2030. ENGIE supports Women's Equality Day across the world, and we strive to be progressive as we continue the journey to impartiality throughout our workforce.
