Although energy is now produced all over the world, it still needs to grow to meet an steadily increasing demand. Although the energy mix issues still remain extremely controversial, communities, industrial companies and energy producers must rethink their operations processes as well as their way of using energy in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and the associated impacts on public health.
Beyond these needs, we are convinced that access to electricity in deprived areas is an essential factor of social progress and economic development on a world scale.
Our strategy is clear: to support the transition towards more sustainable energy consumption and production systems around the world. We aim at manufacturing equipments that are more environmentally friendly, safe and efficient. Thus, we promote a social responsible business model.
