Otmane HAJJI, President and Founder of GreenYellow

Otmane HAJJI, born January 24, 1981 in Oujda, Morocco, is President of GreenYellow. Engineer in electromechanics, industrial engineering and project management, Otmane HAJJI is a former student of the Ecole Polytechnique de Bruxelles and Ecole Centrale Paris.

He began his career with the Renault group in 2005, as a consultant for the Environmental Planning Department, then the Product Planning Department. There, he deployed an environmental management system and contributed to the global vision of environmental issues in the automotive sector.

In 2006, he joined the Casino Group's Real Estate Development Department, where he took on the role of Deputy Director, and discovered the untapped potential of the rooftops and parking lots of the group's stores.

A mission: To be the committed Accelerator of the Energy Transition

A year after his arrival, and accompanied by Philippe HOUINS,  they both created GreenYellow : an innovative company designed to make the most of the retailer's unused surfaces by producing local photovoltaic solar energy.

By expanding its client portfolio outside the Casino group, GreenYellow has developed very quickly, both in terms of offers, with, in addition to decentralized solar photovoltaic, energy efficiency, energy services and electricity mobility, and in terms of international presence, the company is now present in the four corners of the globe.

On October 18, 2022, Otmane HAJJI, accompanied by members of the GreenYellow Group's Executive Committee , finalized the entry of Ardian, a pioneer investor in renewable energies, into the capital of GreenYellow as a majority shareholder.

Otmane HAJJI's vision for GreenYellow is simple: to enable its clients to accelerate their energy transition, by consuming less and better, and without any additional investment on their part. GreenYellow has thus become the energy ally of businesses and local communities worldwide.

President's word

GreenYellow, from a disruptive idea to an international company

"To meet energy challenges, decision-makers should no longer have to choose between economic and ecological benefits. With GreenYellow, their energy transition becomes profitable, that is to say profitable and responsible."
