Our Sustainability Strategy

Our sustainability strategy focuses on unlocking growth for business and society, by leveraging our capabilities to deliver impact and drive change within energy efficiency and trade. At the same time, we continue to integrate sustainability in our operations, mitigating risks and raising performance levels. In 2016, the education program was put on hold, as the business case was no longer valid. An update of our sustainability strategy is being initiated in 2017.

Successful resolution of sustainability issues will rarely occur through the power of the individual company, state, NGO alone. Only when joining forces can significant change take place and alter the premises and solutions space for those involved.

Established partnerships may break down traditional barriers of competition or opposition, when partners come together to explore how they can join forces to achieve an ambitious target.
