Partnerships

GRTgaz has entered numerous partnerships in line with its corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy, with a view to listening to and consulting its stakeholders and partners.

We work with our stakeholders on the responsible economy, the conservation of the environment and social action.

  • Régions de France

    Logo Régions de France

    Under the terms of the partnership agreement signed in September 2016, the Association of French Regions and GRTgaz pool their knowledge and cooperate on three major subjects:

    • The development of regional energy plans
    • The implementation of regional policies (energy, the environment, mobility, innovation, economic development)
    • Apprenticeships, professional training and guidance to find employment

    Joint initiatives and good practices are developed so that “Régions de France” can then pass them on to regional elected representatives. “Régions de France” can call on this partnership to facilitate the energy transition in the regions, while also considering policies in favour of economic development and employment in this field.

  • Green Cross France et Territoires

  • Chambers of agriculture and the FNSEA (the French national farmers union)

    In November 2016, the permanent assembly of the chambers of agriculture (APCA), the French national farmers union (FNSEA) and GRTgaz entered a partnership to develop projects of interest to both the company and the agricultural community.

    The initiative has already defined two major areas of cooperation:

    • Support the installation of new energy projects in farms, in particular by developing agricultural methanation,
    • Protect biodiversity by maintaining service strips and supporting their respective networks in the development of ecological preventive, reductive and compensatory measures.

    This partnership hails a new step forwards in the collaboration with the agricultural professions, which dates back to 1996, through the elaboration and control of the national protocol, renewed in 2015, and the definition of commitments pertaining to routes that respect agricultural activity and to the reconditioning of land after the works.

    GRTgaz is also a partner of the Flower Meadows competition, which rewards farmers who protect and promote the biological wealth of their meadows in natural parks.

GRTgaz is supporting the Federation in the development of its digital programme, which includes a web portal, cartographic tools, a “Walking Ideas” feature and the development of four Randomobile® applications.

  • The National Institute of Preventive Archaeological Research (Inrap)

    In 2011, GRTgaz became a partner of the Inrap in order to promote the archaeological discoveries made in France.
    Before starting construction works, such as the installation of a gas pipeline, the footprint of the infrastructure is diagnosed in order to assess the archaeological potential of the land.

    On the basis of the results of this diagnostic, the State can decide to proceed with excavations.

    In this way, the development of the natural gas transport network offers an opportunity to make new discoveries. GRTgaz can call on the expertise of the Inrap to recover the historical vestiges buried underground, so that the greatest number can appreciate the riches hidden in our soil.

    GRTgaz also supports the National Archaeological Days organised by the Inrap (link to the JNA site). Organised under the aegis of the Minister of Culture and Communication, this event aims to reveal the multiple facets of archaeology to the general public.
