The power of principles

Our role in mitigating climate change

We are committed to reducing our energy consumption, waste and emissions, and we convey best environmental practices to all of our employees and stakeholders.
Whistle-blower portal

Honesty, fairness and transparency

We have always focused on honesty and fairness, but in recent years, transparency has become increasingly important. On 22 December 2021, we launched a new whistle-blower portal in compliance with the EUC Directive 2019/1937.

The new "Got Ethics" portal makes any reporting quick, easy and not least anonymous.

It is our responsibility!

Environmentally, ethically and socially responsible operation

We see it as our responsibility to actively use our position and role in the energy business to develop innovative and sustainable solutions that will play an important role in the green energy transition.

In 2020, the entire world was engaged in combatting the spread and the impact of COVID-19. As always, our priorities were the health and safety of our people and to safeguard the proper functioning of our operations in order to continue to meet our customers’ needs. We managed to adapt to a new situation quickly and to continue business almost as usual. The pandemic »forced« us to think differently, to travel less, to work from home and to find ways to bring new technologies into use.

In the years to come, the ten principles of the UN Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals will continue to serve as the basis for our sustainability efforts. To further strengthen these, we will launch a dedicated and company-wide initiative in 2021 to frame and further sharpen our approach. The interests of our key stakeholders and our aspiration to play an important role in meeting the world’s energy demand in a sustainable way will provide guidance for reviewing our sustainability goals and for defining even more concrete activities to put sustainability at the very core of our business.
