INNIO's Inaugural Sustainability Report (Graphic: Business Wire)

In continuing its sustainability journey, INNIO’s leadership and its Sustainability Review Board (SRB) laid out the company’s ESG goals and strategy which included the development and publication of its first Sustainability Report. The report details how INNIO is working responsibly to deliver communities, industry, and the public with access to sustainable, reliable, and economical power while creating and maintaining an innovative, diverse, inclusive, pleasant and safe working environment for its employees.

Further, as INNIO’s Jenbacher and Waukesha products, services and digital solutions help unlock the transition to a carbon neutral future, INNIO’s Sustainability Report provides its stakeholders with indicators on commitment and progress to reducing greenhouse emissions and initiatives around responsible resource management.

In his opening note to the Sustainability Report, INNIO president and CEO, Carlos Lange, laid out key priorities and accomplishments:

Sustainability Goals

“As we continue to implement our enterprise strategy for profitable growth, we are also underlining our commitment to climate challenges and sustainable growth. INNIO’s Sustainability Goals are related to safety, energy and emissions, water, waste, building efficiency, circular economy, jobsite efficiency and sustainability of our products, services and solutions.”

Uninterrupted Access to Products and Services

“Along with our distributors and suppliers, INNIO is working to help ensure uninterrupted access to the products and services that our global customers rely on to support society during these difficult times. The recent COVID-19 global pandemic presented new challenges around the world, and INNIO was designated by many governments as an ‘essential’ enterprise since our products, parts and services support key infrastructure in the supply of natural gas and electrical energy. Customers use our products to provide primary and standby power & heat to homes; essential facilities such as hospitals, utilities, or district heating plants; and other businesses that must continue to operate.”

Technology Leadership: Hydrogen

“In Hamburg, INNIO Jenbacher and HanseWerk Natur recently collaborated to commission the world’s first large-scale gas engine in the 1 MW range capable of running on a variety of hydrogen-natural gas mixtures or on 100% green hydrogen. It’s also the world’s first natural gas engine conversion to hydrogen in the field. Again, INNIO technology is ahead of the game, demonstrating the future-proof nature of the installed base, this time by offering the ability to convert to carbon free, 100% hydrogen capabilities.”

Digitalization

“Through digitalization, we can constantly improve our products’ design and construction in our advanced factories, flawlessly execute our services, and move beyond reactive to predictive data solutions. At our manufacturing plants, we have embraced digitalization and are continuously refining our operations, accelerating innovation and improving our customers’ experience.”

The Sustainability Report publication follows recent sustainability activities that include INNIO’s recognition by EcoVadis with a Silver business sustainability rating, and INNIO’s joining the United Nations Global Compact. Each of these efforts underscores INNIO’s holistic and structured approach to incorporating sustainability across the company, considering the environment, employee development, health and safety, diversity and inclusion, as well as corporate responsibility.

INNIO’s Sustainability Report was developed in collaboration with external ESG advisors and subject matter experts as well as internal directors from diverse backgrounds.
