With operations in services and solutions involving high-technology and infrastructure works in the five regions of Brazil, employees, service providers, partners and visitors are trained, equipped and given guidance to ensure that every safety rule is observed.

Quality

An organization that focuses on high-technology services and solutions that has an impact on peoples’ lives, in addition to a commitment to social, environmental and economic sustainability, must regard quality as a distinctive trait. This is even more pressing when it comes to electric energy generation, since ENGIE Brasil’s total installed capacity equals 6% of the country’s total. The same percentage certification earned for the environment at ENGIE Brasil’s power generation plants applies to quality management according to the ISO 9001 standard.
