Since 2021, RWE issued €4.85 billion of green bonds. The proceeds are used exclusively to fund renewable energy projects. As stated in the RWE Green Bond Framework, wind and solar projects are eligible for green bond funding. This is in line with the United Nations’ Sustainability Goal number 7 to increase the share of renewable energies in the worldwide electricity mix.
With its strategy ‘Growing Green’, RWE is massively stepping up the pace and is investing €50 billion gross in its core business by 2030. The company is thus expanding its portfolio to 50 gigawatts in the attractive markets of Europe, North America, and the Asia-Pacific Region.
