Corporate responsibility is reflected in five areas of activity:
An ongoing, open dialogue with society combined with farsighted management of economic, social and ecological risks are key to our success. We will anchor social responsibility firmly within our organization, develop an improved reporting system for this purpose, and communicate our relevant activities more effectively. Our goal is to become best-in-class in our industry when it comes to responsible corporate governance.
In our core business of power and gas,we help to create quality of life for people. This requires security of supply and cost-effectiveness, as much as responsible thinking and actions in all parts of the supply chain — from purchasing to sales — with fair competition. We work hard every day to keep our customers satisfied and to offer them customized solutions.
As a utility company with one of the world's largest power station inventories, we have a special responsibility for the environment and for preserving resources. We accept this responsibility by increasing our investments in research activities in the areas of global warming management and energy efficiency. We are also continually upgrading our facilities to reduce emissions and to ensure a sustainable energy supply.

We demonstrate our responsibility for our employees especially by creating a job environment in which health and safety are particularly important. By providing a wide range of options for employee participation, by ensuring equal opportunities and making significant investments in HR development and continuing education, we will become an employer of choice.
We contribute resources, talent and ideas that make our communities great places to live and work. These efforts support community heritage and economic growth and encourage employee volunteerism. We also provide critical funding for educational, socioeconomic and cultural experiences and development. Because we have a passionate belief that we can make a difference in the world around us, our commitment to our communities is enduring.
