As climate change already wreaks havoc in different parts of the globe, children all over the world are particularly at risk as they will be left to face a planet with heavy droughts, flooding, air pollution and water scarcity. A transition to renewable energy is not only essential to achieve the emission reduction goals, but also to create a sustainable planet for our future generations. In addition, clean energy is considered one of the best paths to avoid energy disruption and achieve energy independence. As a renewable energy pure-player, Voltalia plays a crucial role in fighting global climate change and providing access to energy by developing, building and operating renewable energy power plants in developed and emerging countries. In 2021, Voltalia produced 4.1 terawatt hours of green energy, avoiding 1,421 kilotonnes of CO2 equivalent.
Voltalia also conducts social accessibility assessments for all construction projects, while encouraging local human development. For example, more than 40% of staff hired during construction in Brazil are local. In addition, in line with Voltalia’s commitment to protecting the environment in the countries where it operates, projects under construction are covered by an Environmental Impact Assessment study.
