ENGIE Energía Perú, one of the largest power generation companies in the country, made available to all its stakeholders the “Integrated Report”, which gathers the most relevant information on its economic, environmental, social and corporate governance performance, corresponding to the 2021 fiscal year.
This is the second integrated report published by the company, which has been developed under the criteria of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). This edition of the report highlights that ENGIE Energía Perú’s business model contributes directly to 11 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
In the social aspect and community relations, the company invested around 2.3 million dollars, which has benefited around 150,000 people in the districts of Chilca (Lima), Huachón and Paucartambo (Pasco), Huallanca and Yuracmarca (Áncash), Ocucaje and Santiago (Ica) and in the provinces of Ilo and Mariscal Nieto (Moquegua).
In terms of environmental management, in 2021, the company achieved 100% carbon neutrality in its corporate building in Lima, as a result of reducing emissions and obtaining certified carbon credits.
Along the same lines, as part of its energy transition strategy, ENGIE Energía Perú began dismantling its Ilo1 thermoelectric power plant, retired from commercial operation in 2017. It also announced the closure of its coal-fired power plant Ilo21, by the end of 2022; at the same time, it started the construction of the Punta Lomitas wind power plant, located in the region of Ica, which will avoid 230,000 tons of GHG per year.
The Punta Lomitas wind power plant, with an installed capacity of 260 MW, is an important milestone in the Peruvian electricity sector. Thanks to the agreement signed with Anglo American Quellaveco S.A., it will become the first major mining company to use 100% non-conventional renewable energy in its operations.
ENGIE Energía Perú is among the 100 companies with the “Best Reputation in Peru”, in 49th place; and 1st place in the Energy Sector. Likewise, in recognition of the work carried out with the “Entre Frutos” project, it received the “Sustainable Development 2021 Award” from the SNMPE, as well as the “Rímac Excellence Award” for the Best Business Initiative in Occupational Risk Prevention.
