Honest and constructive stakeholder dialogue is a key element in ensuring the success of the energy transition. In particular, the expansion of renewable energies, the modernisation of the portfolio of conventional power stations and the grids demand early integration of the local residents and communities impacted by these projects. Dialogue is the only way of achieving acceptance in the public domain for the construction measures required. A spin-off comes from engaging in continuous dialogue as this engenders support for our core business in relation to our facilities, sales activities and the relationship with suppliers. Our aim over the long term is also to strengthen trust in our companies in this way and to enhance our acceptance within the local community. We regard this as an important platform for the success of our company.
