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.

Alstom ESG 2025 targets were disclosed on Capital Markets Day of July 6, 2021 along the 4 priorities of the Group: Enabling decarbonization of mobility, Caring for our people, Creating a positive impact on society, and Acting as a responsible business partner.

    At the end of 2020, GHG emissions from energy consumption showed a 20% decrease compared to 2019.

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

    Emissions of non-methane Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

    Alstom monitors its Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emissions as a result of the painting activity. In 2020, the VOC emissions amounted to 138 tons. By implementing paint substitution initiatives (e.g. replacement of solvent-containing paints by aqueous paints), Alstom has significantly reduced its VOC emisisions since 2010. The Company continues to pay particular attention to these emissions. The Company has initiated a strategy to reduce VOC emissions through new paint booth specifications, a greater emphasis on solvent-free paints and investigation of other application systems such as electrostatic robots.

    The waste recovery rate reached 88% at the end of 2020, in line with the trajectory for 2025. The recycling rate target has also been achieved since it reached 71%
    at the end of 2020.

  • 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 2020, 60% 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 2020/21. Hence almost 90% of Alstom employees worked on ISO 14001-certified sites or projects.

First green guarantee facility signed

In June 2021, Alstom signed a €400 million Green guarantee facility with BBVA for the issuance of bank guarantees in support of Alstom’s commercial contracts which recognizes the Group’s contribution to Sustainable Development Goals SDG 9 “Industry, innovation and infrastructure” and SDG 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities”. This very positive first step confirms the relevance of the ambition to lead the way to sustainable and smart mobility.

  • In 2019, we received certification in France with the following scope:

    Sales, design, validation and testing activities manufacturing and supply of products, systems and services to railway customers worldwide and related support: integrated rail transport system, rolling stock products, information solutions, infrastructure, civil works and services such as maintenance, modernization, spare parts supply chain management, project management and customer support. The environmental footprint of the related office activities is included in the scope of the Environmental Management System.

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.
