RWE’s corporate strategy underpins our purpose statement “Our energy for a sustainable life”. And our goals are clearly defined: RWE will be climate neutral by 2040 and move the full phase-out of coal in Germany forward to 2030. However, our aspirations go far beyond protecting the climate. With a total of nine sustainability topics, RWE has been defining priority areas for action around all business activities since 2021. These include climate change, biodiversity, circular economy, diversity, and occupational health and safety. Targeted measures have been developed and are being implemented for each area for action. These measures are reassessed and evaluated in our Sustainability Reports. RWE’s sustainability strategy thus also determines the Group’s contribution to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We actively support achieving nine of the 17 SDGs.
From environmental and climate protection, social matters and human rights to responsible corporate governance - RWE embraces its corporate responsibilities in many different ways, and we aim to report about them transparently. We want to explain how and why we make decisions and which measures we take. In our annual Sustainability Report you can find key information about RWE and its subsidiaries, our long-term objectives and the milestones we have reached already on the path to achieving them.
User-friendly layout of the Sustainability Report
The contents of the RWE Sustainability Report are aimed at analysts and investors, non-governmental organisations, customers and suppliers, policy-makers and authorities, and at our employees and the people in the regions where we are active. We want all of them to be able to navigate the document easily. The content of the RWE Sustainability Report is thus structured as clearly as possible and the menu navigation of the PDF document is clear and logical. Not only can users navigate effortlessly between the different chapters, but they are also able to quickly access related topics via numerous internal links.
We at RWE have a big goal. On the way there, maximum transparency is essential for everyone involved.
