The need to reverse the catastrophic effects of climate change grows more critical with each passing day. To help address this urgent issue, in 2021 Tractebel pledged to neutralize its carbon footprint by 2022. As we pursue our purpose of engineering a carbon-neutral future, we will continue partnering with our clients to decarbonize the world’s energy matrix. But also to reduce our own carbon emissions, as a company and as individuals.

Tractebel’s Chief Executive Officer
In 2021, Tractebel set an ambitious goal to neutralize our carbon footprint by the end of 2022. We committed to reducing at least 20% of our emissions, compared to pre-Covid 2019. In 2021, we reached 40% less emissions compared to 2019. We are well on track to reaching our 2022 target.
Several actions are contributing to reducing our emissions, such as adoption of hybrid working by all Tractebel entities across the globe, reduction of our office space and progressive transfer of our data servers to the cloud.
Any remaining emissions at the end of 2022 will be compensated by purchasing high-quality, certified carbon offsets from projects that contribute to the protection of biodiversity, promote social benefits, and ultimately support the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We are busy setting up
