RWE AG is a leading international company in the area of climate-friendly electricity generation headquartered in Essen, Germany. RWE‘s mission statement „Our energy for a sustainable life“ encompasses our purpose as a company and confirms that sustainability is an integral part of our strategy and a principal that guides our actions. We consistently follow this guiding principle for our company, also with the intention of making our contribution to the success of the energy transition. The change in energy systems also entails a change in our market environment and the demands placed on the RWE Group by society. In order to play an active role in the energy transition, RWE has successfully completed a comprehensive, strategic realignment.

Our goal is clearly defined here: RWE will be climate neutral by 2040. We are underpinning this with our investment and growth strategy „Growing Green“: By 2030, we will have expanded our sustainable generation capacity to 50 gigawatts and we are investing a total of 50 billion euros gross in this. RWE is targeting a high pace of growth in renewable energy, particularly wind power and photovoltaics, along with powerful storage facilities. This will enable RWE to play a major role in shaping the climate-neutral transition of the energy world. We will secure a climate-neutral society with flexible back-up-capacities and green hydrogen. However, our aspiration extends far beyond climate protection – we have launched a large number of activities with the aim of becoming even more sustainable. We identified our areas for actions in the fields of environmental, economic and social matters that we want to prioritise in our operations. We have a robust financial position as a company to take on this challenge. Our more than 19,000 creative, motivated and competent employees are helping us to meet the requirements over the long term.
