Beirut, 12 January 2023 – ESA Business School and TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon have signed a partnership to solarize the ESA Clemenceau campus. TotalEnergies will install 448 solar panels on ESA's main building, the SmartESA incubator building and the main parking lot within the campus. Targeted for completion in the first quarter of 2023, this project has a 246 kWp installed solar capacity and contributes to 270 tons of CO2 reduction per year.

Maxence Duault, General Director of ESA Business School, welcomed this partnership, "I thank the teams at TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon who were able to understand the needs and realities of ESA. Beyond the need to reduce our consumption and our generator bill, it is essential for ESA to move forward in response to the ecological emergency. This solarization project of the Clemenceau Campus embodies our values of innovation and responsibility. In addition to being one of the few green buildings at the heart of Beirut, ESA Campus is becoming a center for ecological transition.”

Adrien Béchonnet, Managing Director of TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon, said, "TotalEnergies aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, together with society. The solarization of the Clemenceau Campus is in line with our ambition to support customers in their own transition towards more affordable and sustainable energy.”

Apart from this partnership, both parties also signed an agreement for TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon to support, for a period of three years, the activities of SmartESA, ESA's start-up incubator. Dedicated to entrepreneurship and job creation, TotalEnergies Marketing Lebanon will hence partner one of the most efficient incubators in Lebanon, which will launch a new start-up recruitment campaign in the coming days.
