Towards cleaner operations

As a key player in the mobility sector, Alstom is at the forefront of the challenges facing society today, from global warming to rapid urbanisation. Understanding the importance of reducing the environmental impact of its operations, the Company strives to make more sustainable choices at every step, from energy sources to transportation and recycling.

This desire for operational and environmental excellence led Alstom to set ambitious targets  focusing on 5 main objectives. With quarterly environmental monitoring and a network of 200 dedicated EHS (Environment, Health & Safety) professionals, the Group continues to reinforce its commitment to sustainable operations.

  • Energy intensity in our permanent facilities*

    At the end of 2019, the intensity of GHG emissions from energy consumption showed a 27% decrease compared to 2014.

  • Emissions of non-methane Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

    Emissions of non-methane Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

    A new relevant indicator was created in 2017 to measure the impact of the activity on the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emissions: the VOC intensity, which is the quantity of VOC emitted as a result of the painting activity. The activity is measured by the number of units painted (a unit can be a locomotive, coach or component). In 2019, the VOC intensity is 57kg/painted unit, a decrease compared to last year (71 kg).

  • Water intensity*

  • Share of electricity from renewable sources (Consumption on industrial sites)

    Share of electricity from renewable sources (Consumption on industrial sites)

    In addition to controlling the energy emission of its operations, the Company has taken additional steps through committing to using 100% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025. In total, in 2019, 36% of electricity supplies were from renewable origin.

Clean operations certification

We are in line with our 2020 target to reach a global Alstom ISO 14001 certification. 100% of manufacturing sites and regional centres with over 200 employees are certified ISO 14001 in 2019/20. Hence almost 90% of Alstom employees worked on ISO 14001-certified sites or projects.
 

Alstom offsets the environmental impact of its activities in Hornell, USA: 

Alstom has purchased over 13 million kWh of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from leading energy and energy-related service provider Direct Energy Business for its Hornell operations. As Alstom’s Hornell operations do not have access to locally produced renewable electricity, the purchase of RECs represents an investment in green electricity produced elsewhere in the nation and a means of offsetting the carbon footprint of Hornell’s operations.
