“Currently, the purpose of companies no longer resides only in achieving good financial results, but also in creating strategies that have a positive impact on society. In that context, EGP’s Green Label represents an opportunity for our customers, since they can certify to their stakeholders that they are committed to responsible, clean and competitive electricity consumption.”
This project is in line with our ever-growing dedication to actively assisting countries and companies in their transition to green energy by completely decarbonizing electricity production. EGP is increasing its investment in renewable energies, thereby making a significant contribution to achieving the United Nations’ sustainable development goals (SDGs), established to counteract climate change.
After completing a thorough audit, EGP certified 4.8 TWh of energy generated from renewable resources (mainly hydroelectric) in 2018. It then awarded the Green Label to companies who had used 100% of that clean energy. The six companies that received the Green Label are: Ajinomoto, Nestlé, Falabella Group, Molycop, Indeco and BSH Peru.
The label, given to some of EGP’s most important clients in Peru, is also an incentive to create a national network of #EmpresasConPropósito (i.e. Active Companies), as we know full-well that to achieve our sustainability goals and have a positive impact on society and the environment, we must work together.
