CGG Continues to Power UK Sites with Green Energy
Paris, France | Oct 22, 2020
CGG has extended its commitment to green energy by renewing and expanding its contract to power all its operating sites in the UK with renewable energy. As an early adopter of renewable energy sources for its UK operations eight years ago, CGG has evaluated the green credentials of its suppliers and recommitted to a REGO (Renewable Energy Guarantees Origin) backed contract to ensure that all electricity used is generated from renewable wind sources.
CGG’s clean energy contract now includes all of its Geoscience sites in the UK, including Redhill, Crawley, Llandudno, Conwy and Edenbridge. The company also uses this sustainable energy supply to power the CGG Cloud which provides compute resources for its Geoscience activity throughout the wider EAME region, as well as its dedicated computing resources for a number of its European clients.
Peter Whiting, SVP, EAME Geoscience, CGG, said:“Embracing sustainable energy is part of CGG’s ongoing commitment to improving our power usage efficiency and increasing the low-carbon content of our energy supply. Our Environmental and Climate Policy is a cornerstone of our corporate commitment to act responsibly and minimize the impact of our activities on the environment, in every sector of our business. It is also part of our commitment to our clients to provide solutions that can best help them achieve their energy transition goals.”
