Petah Tikva, Israel – July 3, 2023 – GenCell Energy, (TASE: GNCL), the leading provider of hydrogen and ammonia to power solutions, is proud to announce today the release of its inaugural Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) Report covering 2022.
“As a company founded on sustainability principles and from a deep understanding of current global energy challenges and the needs of future generations, GenCell’s vision is to bring ‘Power for Humanity’, expressing our commitment to providing climate-friendly infrastructure that can sustainably support society’s needs and accelerate its pace of development,” explains Rami Reshef, GenCell’s CEO. “We aim to make an impact on the future of the clean energy market by enabling GenCell technology users to achieve Net-Zero targets.”
The report reflects GenCell’s company-wide commitment to sustainability and clean energy targets as well as to advancing social and corporate governance objectives that contribute to the company’s impact. The report details the measures the company has taken to adopt an ESG strategy and relevant goals based on three pillars that represent the material topics: Impactful Products, Responsible Manufacturing and Management & Conduct. The company believes that these pillars and topics accurately reflect the areas where it has the greatest impact.
In order to align the company’s activities with its stakeholders’ expectations and industry trends emphasizing sustainable impact, GenCell is proud to publish its first ESG report, which is an integral piece in its larger ESG strategy, which includes goals and targets for the company’s development and performance.
On the topic of Impactful Products, the company has committed to executing lifecycle analyses (LCA) for its products; to working to measure and prevent CO2 emissions generated by its products; and to enabling energy access in developing countries. In the arena of Responsible Manufacturing, GenCell will focus on continuing to maintain a rate of zero occupational injuries, implementing recycling, reuse and zero waste initiatives, and, importantly, working towards achieving net-zero emissions by 2035. In the area of Management & Conduct, we focus on the development of a Supplier Code of Conduct, conducting an ESG assessment of material suppliers, and increasing gender diversity within the company’s Board of Directors.
GenCell’s vision is to provide businesses and organizations worldwide with reliable, affordable, clean green energy that kicks in as soon as it’s needed, whenever it’s needed and for as long as it’s needed, no matter what. Power for Humanity. To realize this vision, and to achieve these aspirations, the company believes that its actions must match its assertions. This report is a notable achievement for GenCell in its strategic ESG journey, as it communicates the notable impact of the company’s activities in shaping a cleaner energy future in line with how it “walks the talk” and implements sustainability principles in its own operations and processes.
