Growing Green – our strategic roadmap to 2030

An ambitious growth programme in our core business forms the centrepiece of our Growing Green strategy. In the 10 years between 2021 and the end of 2030, we intend to invest approximately €50 billion in new wind farms, photovoltaic assets, battery storage, gas-fired power plants and electrolysers. In net terms, i.e. taking cash flows from divestments into account, we expect our investments to total around €30 billion. We are looking to expand our green portfolio by around 25 GW to 50 GW and are concentrating on the attractive markets of Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region. These efforts will have a particular focus on the following business areas:

RWE's business areas

We want to be carbon neutral by 2040.

We have set ourselves the ambitious target of being carbon neutral by no later than 2040. Not only does this apply to our own greenhouse gas emissions, it also covers our upstream and downstream value chain.

 

We have also set ourselves an emissions reduction target for 2030, which adheres to the Paris Climate Agreement, as officially confirmed by the independent Science Based Targets initiative in late 2020. We are playing our part in limiting the increase in global average temperature to below 2 degrees.

We want to increase the share of women in leadership positions.

At RWE, we know that a diverse and inclusive corporate culture is key to our success. Diversity has many facets, one of which is gender equality when filling leadership roles within our company. This is why we have set ourselves the target of increasing the share of women in management positions in our core business by 2030.

We want to grow sustainably.

In mid-2021, the European Commission published details on the criteria that should be used to determine whether economic activity is mitigating or adapting to climate change. 2021 is the first financial year for which we have disclosed what percentage of our capital expenditure, our revenue and our operational expenditure are classified as sustainable in accordance with EU taxonomy regulations. In the first year of reporting, companies are allowed to follow a simplified process, whereby disclosure is limited to whether taxonomy criteria exist for a given economic activity and not whether the applicable conditions for said activity have been met. Activities for which taxonomy criteria exist are classified as ‘taxonomy-eligible’.

From 1 January 2023, we will report the percentage of our economic activities that actually meet the technical screening criteria and are thus considered ‘taxonomy-aligned’. We have set ourselves the target of ensuring that by 2030 more than 90% of our capital expenditure is concentrated in such activities.
