How we create lasting value for society

Each of our four commitments stands for itself. But together they empower us to create lasting value for society.

01.

Sustainability

As we see it, social, economic, and environmental sustainability are interlinked. To achieve sustainability in one, we must address all three.

Working on the front line with the United Nations

In 2004 we joined the United Nations Global Compact. For each year that has passed, our commitment and our investment have become greater. Today we are involved in 4 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals – and our work is contributing to social, economic, and environmental sustainability.

Sustainability

Using our business to leverage social, environmental, and economic progress

Producing clean energy with renewable sources is just the first step on our path towards a new sustainable model of development, construction, and operation of our plants.

Each day, we work to create shared value in the contexts we are part of. We aim to combine the pursuit of our industrial goals with a concrete contribution to the socio-economic development of the area. And by building strong and positive relationships we achieve long-term and sustainable results.

Innovation

Cultivating technologies to evolve the way energy is sourced, distributed, and consumed

Beyond technology itself, innovation centers on a widespread cultural change that facilitates a new way of relating to the world.

For this reason, we speak about Open Innovability®. This opens up to the outside world, to industrial partners, universities, research centers, startups and, last but not least, to colleagues and customers.

The outcome is a desirable ecosystem where cross-contamination is encouraged and allows us to work closer together – to devise innovative and sustainable solutions that meet society’s changing needs.

Innovation Hubs

These hubs are not merely observation points, but active collectors and incubators of problem-solving ideas. They allow us to pinpoint and accelerate innovation in the places and communities where they are taking place.

Open Innovability

We use this approach to give all of our stakeholders a voice, both within and outside the company. This is why the Open Innovability crowdsourcing platform allows anyone to propose sustainable innovation projects – or solutions – to the challenges we need to tackle.

Energy Transition and Electrification

Driving the change towards a sustainable energy system

As the global leader in the energy sector, we are driving the transition towards a more sustainable system, which is essential to the future of the planet. We are doing so by accelerating the production of renewable energies all over the world, setting increasingly ambitious targets and implementing our strategy of decarbonization and electrification.

Electrification

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

Open Power

The strategy we use to accelerate transformation

To make real impact on the world’s growing energy issues, we must multiply the effects of the progress that has already been made.

For this reason, we are providing more services to more people in more countries – powering local economies and expanding energy access wherever we can.

Openness plays a key role in our strategic and operational approach, and it helps us tackle the challenges involved in energy transition. We believe these challenges can be overcome through innovation, sustainability, and collaboration.
