Sustainable development Energy cells: priorities, goals and results

As part of the EPSO-G group of energy transmission and exchange companies, our concept of sustainability is inseparable from that of the group as a whole. We understand sustainability as the implementation of the transformation of the energy sector, ensuring a sustainable balance between environmental, social and economic objectives, thus contributing to the creation of a climate-neutral economy.

We are guided by the belief that the principles of sustainability must be integrated into all our activities and processes. We therefore aim to contribute to the overall sustainability of the EPSO-G group by making a contribution commensurate with the size and performance of our company.
