Our contribution to SDGs
In 2015, the United Nations created an approach to addressing global challenges with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the “Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.”
We also support the SDGs. Our activities contribute in particular to following goals:
Ensuring that everyone has access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern forms of energy
By expanding renewable energy and supporting our customers in their own production of clean electricity, we are contributing to a sustainable and climate-friendly energy supply. Our distribution grids are the platform connecting energy producers with consumers and play the key role in ensuring security of supply. We also offer assistance to economically disadvantaged customers – because energy should be equally available to all without interruption.
Through intelligent solutions, we help cities and communities to use energy sustainably. That encompass integrated solutions for efficient heating and cooling, low-carbon generation, and smart energy management. In addition, we offer e-mobility solutions such as public charging infrastructure.
Immediately take action to combat climate change and its impacts
As an energy company, we play a key role in climate protection. With our strategic focus on renewables, intelligent energy networks and innovative energy solutions we have accepted this role and avoid the output of CO2 emissions. We are continuously reducing our own carbon footprint.
In addition, we are marking a further contribution to the following SDGs:
We protect the health and safety of our own employees and those of our partner companies. Furthermore, we take responsibility for ensuring that our products, such as solar panels and battery storage devices installed in private homes, are safe for our customers.
We offer our employees an attractive, supportive, and inclusive work environment in which our people can realize their potential. Furthermore, we have to ensure that we respect human rights in all aspects of our business.
We support innovations such as solutions helping our customers to use energy efficiently. In order to enable an uninterrupted supply of power, we are constantly modernizing and optimizing our distribution network infrastructure.
Through distributed and digital solutions, we help our customers reduce their energy consumption and CO2 emissions. We are also committed to conserve resources and to reduce our own energy consumption.
