These awards highlight two of the pillars of our innovation culture: intrapreneurship and collaboration with start-ups, both of which enable projects that aim to co-construct the energy solutions of tomorrow to emerge.
ENGIE is ranked among the 50 most active companies in terms of collaboration with startups in the world. This recognition, a global prize for open innovation, is bestowed by the international organization Mind The Bridge and the International Chamber of Commerce. For the third year, ENGIE received the special "Intrapreneurship program Award".
More than 100 startups elected the 50 most active companies in the world for their collaboration with startups, listing ENGIE as one of the Top 25 "Corporate Startup Stars". For the third time in a row, ENGIE is among the top 50 companies recognized for their strategy, processes, and culture of innovation.
The Group has also been awarded for its intrapreneurship approach which, during the ENGIE Innovation Trophies, rewards the most innovative projects imagined by its employees. These awards help to identify and disseminate innovative technologies, practices, and initiatives. For the 2022 edition, 560 projects from 35 countries have been submitted. Once again this year, the finalist projects help ENGIE to project itself into the future, as they build the path to decarbonization, through renewable energies, the development of green gases, energy flexibility, and efficiency.
The incubators, or "ENGIE Factories", in Paris and Singapore, develop new business models, test them, measure the risks with customers or partners via profitable pilot projects, and then, develop new activities around these new concepts to be integrated into ENGIE's business units over a period of three to five years. Solutions are based either on solving customer problems or on ideas from ENGIE intrapreneurs or external entrepreneurs whose skills, inspiration and expertise are needed to succeed.
