ENGIE, committed to local engagement

ENGIE integrates responsible growth at the heart of its activities in order to tackle the enormous challenges of transitioning to a carbon neutral future.

As a major company, ENGIE fully assumes its social responsibility and makes it a point of honour to contribute to building a fairer world. Our commitment has been part of our DNA for many years and is part of our corporate culture. 

The local anchoring of our company allows us to identify many societal needs through a constant dialogue with the parties concerned. Our social policy is built around the ENGIE Foundation, which works on the central theme of integrating young people through sport, culture and education. Our many years of expertise also enable us to support organisations through skills patronage. Finally, we also support hundreds of ENGIE employees who are involved in associations during their free time.
