Our Purpose:
Our energy for a sustainable life

With more than 125 years of successful history behind us, RWE has undergone fundamental change and is now a leading supplier of renewables worldwide. 

Our ambition:
climate-neutral by 2040.

The company wants to phase out coal by 2030. RWE employs around 19,000 people worldwide and has a clear target: to get to net zero by 2040.

On its way there, the company has set itself ambitious targets for all activities that cause greenhouse gas emissions. The Science Based Targets initiative has confirmed that these emission reduction targets are in line with the Paris Agreement.
