To accelerate their decarbonisation efforts, the company has a dedicated corporate venture arm called ENGIE Factory (formed since 2018) which focuses on building new climate-tech startup solutions. ENGIE Factory works with founders to deliver investment-grade venture opportunities. They build their ventures by combining the best of both worlds: the entrepreneurial skillset and the established corporate assets. This results in commercialised climate-tech solutions that are customer-focused, affordable, and market-ready.


“As a corporate venture builder, ENGIE Factory takes a strategic approach to building and investing in new founders and ventures to accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral economy. The promise of a financial return alone is not enough for us to invest in a startup. We balance the requirement for financial gain with strategic benefit for the wider ENGIE group and, most importantly, the benefit for the planet and society by targeting 100Mt of carbon abatement per venture, ” said Edwin Cheang, COO, ENGIE Factory.


ENGIE Factory plans to scale their Venture Build Program across Asia Pacific and the Middle East where they work with their founders to iterate, prototype and test ideas and together, build a startup fit for international growth. Founders will have access to ENGIE’s domain expertise, and ENGIE business units, as well as their client network across 70 countries. Their founders who successfully complete the program will also receive seed funding while retaining majority equity and the freedom to set the business direction and see their venture vision come to life.
