Our Policy

Tractebel pursues a sustainable future by thinking ahead to reduce or eliminate any harmful impact our activities and projects might have on the environment. We aim at reducing our own environmental footprint and make sure employees and stakeholders are aware of environmental challenges in which we, as a company, play a part. As a result, our operational processes and approach to design has set an example of sustainability for others to follow. Some of our management systems for creating a sustainable environment have been recognised with different environmental certifications such as ISO 14001 and the eco-dynamic label.

We encourage each of our stakeholders to act on these undertakings communicated in our environmental policy. 

We contribute to a sustainable environment

Together with our clients we create added value by integrating sustainability in all project phases, from idea to execution. We contribute to a better environment through our specific environmental expertise as well as in the energy, water and the infrastructure sectors.
