The integrity of all our activities is an essential requirement for sustained and successful growth. We are aware of our role in the community and our responsibility towards customers, business partners, shareholders and employees.
The underlying principles of the RWE Code of Conduct form the foundation for the activities of RWE, both as a business and as a corporate citizen.
