Becoming sustainable is one of the core strategic goals of the RWE Group, because there is no alternative to sustainable economics, especially for a utilities provider like RWE. The business model of RWE is designed for the long term. When investing in power plants, renewable energies, networks and conveyor plants, RWE plans and makes decisions not for years to come, but for decades to come. To ensure the success of such long-term projects, the company needs the acceptance of society, which is what RWE intends to achieve with its strategy for corporate responsibility (CR). RWE's CR strategy seizes the challenges of the core business. It extends across ten areas of activity that bundle the issues most challenging for RWE from a CR aspect. This includes not only climate protection, energy efficiency and supply security but also the supply chain and demographic change. The company has set a binding and measurable goal for each of these fields, which RWE reports on in detail in its CR Report.
