ENGIE is an organisation on a decades-long voyage of transformation – from a traditional energy utility and state monopoly to a pioneer of carbon reduction and services to customers.
To support this evolution, ENGIE University, the company’s in-house university approached INSEAD about the possibility of developing a programme in customer-centricity and service mindset.
Today, ENGIE is known as a global pioneer in carbon reduction. But behind the cutting-edge, sustainable identity there is a long story. The company was created in 2008 through the merger of Gaz de France and Suez.
GDF SUEZ changed its name to ENGIE in 2015 to reflect an increasingly global outlook. In 2016 it adopted a new strategy focused on a neutral carbon future, withdrawing progressively from the coal business, producing energy as locally as possible and using digital technology to maximise efficiency.
