How we create lasting value for society

Each of our four commitments is essential but we can only create value for society if we address them together.

Sustainability

Social, economic and environmental sustainability are closely connected. It is impossible to be sustainable without working on all three fronts.

Working on the front line with the United Nations

Sustainability

For us energy is a way of incentivizing social, environmental and economic progress

Producing clean energy from renewable sources is just the first step toward a new sustainable model for developing, building and operating our plants. 

We work each and every day to create value in all the contexts in which we have a presence. Our aim is to combine our industrial goals with the socioeconomic development of the areas where we operate. We build solid, positive relationships in order to achieve sustainable and enduring results.

Letter to Stakeholders

We have made our business model sustainable along the entire value chain and we have organized it according to the various different geographic, social and economic contexts involved. We continue to anticipate the future and work with our stakeholders to ensure that society enjoys sustainable progress.

Innovation

We are constantly innovating to find increasingly efficient ways of generating, distributing and using energy

Innovation does not just mean technology: it is the result of a major cultural shift that is helping us to relate to the world in a new way. 

This is why we talk about Open Innovation because it enables us to open ourselves up to the outside world, to industrial partners, universities, research centers, startups, colleagues and clients. 

The result? A perfect ecosystem that encourages exchange and crossovers, and which also allows us to work closely to invent innovative solutions that meet society’s new needs.

Our Innovation Hubs

The Hubs are genuine incubators where different ideas and solutions come to life and come together. This means we can identify the areas of innovation in localities were it is growing most rapidly.

Open Innovability®

We want to give all of our stakeholders, both in-house and external, a voice. This is why anyone can use our Open Innovability® crowdsourcing platform to suggest sustainable innovation projects and solutions for the challenges we are facing.

Energy Transition and Electrification

Thanks to renewables, the coal phase-out, electrification and green hydrogen, we are leading the transition to a sustainable energy system

As a global leader in the energy sector, we are driving the transition to a more sustainable system that is essential to the planet’s future. We can make this happen both by accelerating renewable energy production all over the world with increasingly ambitious targets, and by implementing our decarbonization and electrification strategies.

Electrification

Electricity produced from renewable sources represents the most efficient and cost-effective solution for driving the energy transition.

The strategy for accelerating the ongoing transformation

To make a difference in a world in which energy is a constant challenge, we have to multiply the progress made so far.

This is why we are offering our products and services to growing numbers of people all over the world, feeding into local economies and expanding access to energy.

Openness is one of the basic principles underpinning our strategic and operational approach: it helps us to tackle the challenges of the energy transition. Indeed, we believe that these challenges can be met through innovation, sustainability and collaboration.
