Our Mission

mission-driven logo

Our purpose:

Improve global environment, foster local development

 

Our 3 Mission-driven Objectives:

#1 Act for the production of a renewable energy accessible to the many

#2 Contribute with the local population to the sustainable development of territories

#3 Make the best out the planet resources, in a sustainable way

We participate in the fight against climate change

Voltalia’s business is a direct lever for climate action. As an independent producer and service provider for renewable energy production, the company is actively involved in the fight against climate change and avoids tons of CO2 emissions through energy decarbonization.

1.1

Supporting our clients in their energy transition
Voltalia diversifies its activities in order to complement its services and support its customers in their efforts to reduce their environmental impact. Whether managing wind and solar assets (Greensolver), recovering submerged forests (Triton) or extending the useful life of turbines (MyWindParts), we are benefiting the climate by continuously strengthening our expertise in renewable energies. Helexia specialises in solar roofs and in customised energy efficiency and optimisation solutions and supports companies in terms of their strategy to reduce their carbon footprint.

Improving the way we measure our impact on the climate
To calculate more accurately and reliably the emissions avoided thanks to our green energy production, we are improving how we measure our performance indicators. We therefore developed an internal tool for calculating avoided emissions, which was reviewed and certified by ekodev, an independent third party.

2022 KPIs

  • 39% increase in our installed capacity (Objective 2027: > 5GW)
  • 3.7 TWh of green electricity produced
  • 1,436ktCO2 avoided

 

  • 78% of revenues aligned with European taxonomy regulations
  • 75% of MW under development were in non-OECD countries

We strengthen access to competitive green energy

The renewable energy produced by the power plants developed, built or operated by Voltalia, on its own behalf or on behalf of its customers, provides end consumers (individuals, companies or public administrations) with access to electricity that is often cheaper than traditional sources (coal, gas, fuel oil, nuclear).

1.2

Producing cheaper electricity
Renewable electricity has become the least expensive energy ever produced while at the same time meeting the energy security challenges of both countries and companies. Thanks to a differentiating strategy focused on non-subsidized, Voltalia increases access to high-quality renewable energy. We also want to contribute to improving the capacity and reliability of production in countries where the energy grid is not sufficiently developed and in remote areas not currently served by an existing grid.

Remaining a leader in corporate PPA
Our role is to support our clients by offering them competitive, fixed-price renewable electricity, particularly through the signing of Corporate PPAs (CPPAs). CPPAs are long-term contracts that directly tie a company to an electricity producer, such as Voltalia. As part of these contracts, the electricity producer will develop a renewable power plant specifically for the end consumer at attractive, stable long-term price conditions.

2022 KPIs

  • > 83% of electricity generated by Voltalia’s power plants is competitive
  • 4.8 millions of equivalent people provided with our green electricity

 

  • 75% of contracts were signed with Corporate power purchase agreement (CPPA)

We nurture dialogue with our stakeholders

Voltalia attaches the utmost importance to sustainable local integration in the regions where it operates. Regular dialogue with stakeholders, through the implementation of consultation mechanisms, is a systematic and voluntary approach by Voltalia to ensure optimal integration of projects in the territories.

2.1

Understand local needs and expectations
Community liaison officers are present in Brazil, France, Kenya and Albania. Their Mission is to monitor and steer the local consultation process and to establish Voltalia as a key player in the region. During the development phase, consultation enables us to identify, meet and involve local stakeholders in the project.

Managing grievances effictively
Good grievance and complaints management is important to support the smooth running of a project. In 2022, Voltalia developed a single, centralised grievance management tool applicable to projects. The tool makes it possible to monitor grievance response times and to document and consolidate the types of grievances received and the solutions proposed. The aim is to strengthen the sharing of best practices and to improve social risk management and dialogue with local communities in a sustainable way.

2022 KPIs

  • 98% of MW under construction in non-designated countries* are covered by a grievance management tool aligned with International finance corporation (IFC) standards

*Non-designated countries are those for which there is insufficient legislation on social and environmental management (Brazil and Albania in the case of Voltalia's operations)

 

  • 12 community liaison officers (CLO) on our different geographies
  • Objective 2025: 80% of Voltalia’s projects under construction will meet the IFC’s Performance Standards for stakeholder engagement

We contribute to local human development

Voltalia’s activities contribute to the local development by creating jobs and sustainable infrastructure and developing social and environmental projects for the benefit of local communities.
