Since our creation, we have successfully addressed the challenges of the energy transition : to help you consume less and consume better! Our DNA is rooted in environmental and social responsibility. As a true partner, we believe it is our duty to seek a double positive impact, both economic and environmental, for our teams, clients, investors... Our 15 years of activity and expansion proved our model sound and robust: by focusing on a smart energy mix, where green and local production prevail, we are able to reconcile new energies and profitable energy savings.
At GreenYellow, we take great pride in being ambassadors and actors of sustainable development projects. Our teams are young and see the future in the long term, which motivates them all the more to contribute to the energy transition.
In line with our commitment to the environment to fight against global warming, we are actively contributing to the achievement of the UN's sustainable development goals (SDGs), and in particular goal #7 (clean energy at affordable prices) and goal #13 (fight against climate change).
Our CSR policy was defined in 2019 as a set of 14 initiatives, grouped in 4 pillars, to:
Act in an environmentally responsible way:
Support the fight against global warming (reduction of greenhouse gases), Contribute to the preservation of natural resources and biodiversity, Promote and encourage environmental awareness
Commit to the prosperity of our teams:

Build transparent and trust-based partnerships:
Encourage responsible energy consumption, Reinforce ethics and compliance throughout our value chain, Ensure responsible sourcing and promote supplier CSR initiatives, Inform our stakeholders about our CSR roadmap and results
In 2020, installed renewable energy and energy efficiency projects avoided 275,000 tons of CO2 emissions (impact of active projects as of 12/31/20).
In Madagascar, we organize educational tours of our largest solar power plant (CDM-CER certified). More than 600 students from the surrounding villages have participated and we invite farmers to a "grass day" to mow the land to feed their livestock.
We are proud to publish the Professional Equality Index 2020 which amounts to 91/100. The index is a score out of 100 and is composed of five main criteria that assess the inequalities between women and men in companies. This result demonstrates GreenYellow's strong commitment to gender equality.
GreenYellow has partnered with the organization Pur Projet to launch a reforestation project on the banks of the São Francisco River in Brazil, near the Amazon. The energy performance of our customers is at the heart of this compensation system. To date, more than 600 trees have been planted.
The GreenYellow CSR team has launched a new initiative called POD14, which aims to make CSR more accessible to all through a series of podcasts.
Following these editions, you will be able to deepen your knowledge of CSR in a fun way. You will also discover keys to act in favor of the energy transition and to motivate your different networks to follow you, because we can all be ambassadors of "positive change"!
Our activity induces the emission of approximately 50,000 tCO2e, and we are committed to reducing this footprint continuously.
Our projects have helped our clients avoid emissions of 275,000 tCO2e in 2020, evenly split between solar and energy efficiency installations.
At GreenYellow, we value our relationships with all our stakeholders. We strive to maintain ethical and lawful relationships across the geographies in which we operate.
