According to the International Energy Agency, industry accounts for approximately 20% of CO2 emissions worldwide.
Given the climate emergency that we are facing and the current energy crisis, decarbonising industry is therefore crucially important. How can we support an economic fabric that has already been put to the test by the pandemic during the transition? How can we ensure that we experience this transition as something positive? And how can we turn the constraints it brings with it into growth opportunities? Equans implements actionable solutions to secure its industrial clients and help them reduce their carbon footprint and cut their energy bill, while remaining competitive.
The industrial sector is coming under pressure across-the-board, and this is encouraging it to speed up its energy transition. The most burning issues include supply bottlenecks, inflation and the steep increase in energy prices as a result of the war in Ukraine.
Rationalising production capacity has become vital for the whole industrial value chain
says Elvia Marcellan, Director of Client Decarbonisation at Equans France, whose vision is shared in this full record. Managing consumption and energy expenditure has become strategically important across a whole sector undergoing root-and-branch change. Before that, the pandemic had already highlighted the fragility of our supply chains. It catalysed the emergence of a new approach designed to provide greater resilience, relocate industry and bring about greater autonomy.
