1.6 Supporting sustainable growth

 

Rubis places its CSR commitments at the heart of its strategy

 

Providing access to energy for as many people as possible is a critical contribution to the development of the various geographies and the populations that live there.

 

Rubis aims to contribute to sustainable growth, in keeping with its corporate culture and values. To achieve this goal, the Group strives to operate in a responsible manner, taking into account both challenges in its sector and the expectations of its stakeholders.

 

The approach now revolves around four priorities that structure the Group’s CSR approach.

 

Limiting our environmental impact

 

In view of the nature of the Group’s activities, respect for the environment is one of its priorities.

 

As a responsible company, Rubis takes care to limit its environmental footprint by implementing measures to:

 

reduce its emissions into natural environments (water, soil, air);
contribute to the fight against climate change;
optimize the use of resources.

 

ROLLING OUT OUR CLIMATE STRATEGY

 

To support the Group’s strategic thinking, a Climate Committee has been established and a Climate  & New Energies team now coordinates the operational efforts of the Rubis Énergie subsidiaries.

 

In 2020, the Group clarified its Climate strategy, which focuses on two pillars:

reducing the carbon impact of its activities by optimizing its energy consumption (scopes 1 and 2); and
contributing to the development of a less carbon-intense society by developing energy transition solutions for its customers (promoting liquefied gas as a transition energy in emerging economies) and by promoting the use of low-carbon energies (biofuels, HVO, etc.).

Operating in a safe environment

 

Rubis has placed safety at the heart of its responsible business ambition. Activity management systems are structured around this essential principle.

 

The Group strives on a daily basis to prevent the risk of industrial accidents and to protect the health and safety of workers, residents and consumers through the implementation of rigorous measures.
