Distributing energy for everyday life


Rubis is aware of the energy transition challenges facing its sector. The oil and gas sector plays a key role in terms of energy access, which is essential to meet the fundamental needs of people (traveling, heating and cooling, lighting, cooking) and to support their development. Nevertheless, even today, a large proportion of the population in many of the Group’s operating regions (Africa in particular) is still deprived of access to energy.

Aware of changing expectations in society and the necessity of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions, Rubis intends to support this energy transition by continuing to study and implement sustainable solutions. The Group must find a balance between the expectations of customers wanting to access affordable energy, and the necessity of helping to combat climate change by reducing CO2 emissions related to its activities.

Although there are many avenues to be explored, significant technological, societal and economic challenges remain in relation to reducing the proportion of fossil fuels in the energy mix and making less carbon-intensive energies available to all. In order for these solutions to be successful and drive progress, they must be adapted to the specific characteristics of each of our regions. Lastly, to be sustainable, growth must also be inclusive. It is therefore essential that the policies implemented to promote the transition to a low-emission and climate-change-resilient economy have a positive social impact.
