Iliad gets green energy and SBTi approval for climate goals


As part of its plan to cut carbon emissions and boost its renewable energy share, Iliad has signed three PPAs in its three main markets: France, Italy and Poland. The group’s climate action goals have also been verified by the SBTi.

Starting from 01 April 2025, Iliad will sign a PPA with its existing energy partner Engie for fifteen years. The contract will enable Iliad to purchase the power generated by a new solar farm in Sainte-Gemme (Charente-Maritime). Furthermore, Iliad has signed PPAs with Statkraft, a renewable energy expert, for its operations in Italy and Poland. For ten years from 01 January 2025, Iliad will buy power from a solar plant near Latina in Italy. Statkraft will also provide power from a solar site in Resko, Poland, to Iliad’s subsidiary Play during that time.

Iliad stated that these three PPAs and the one from early 2023 will total nearly 140 GWh of renewable electricity production capacity, covering 13 percent of the group’s direct energy use in 2025. The deals back the SBTi-validated climate action plan, which has goals for 2030 and 2050.

The telecom’s goal is to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions by 60 percent by 2030 (from 2022 levels), and also cut the emissions from its supply chain that it does not control by 46 percent. By 2050, it aims to lower both types of emissions by 90 percent.
