Our environmental responsibility

To meet the unprecedented challenges we are facing, acceleration is needed. At Vattenfall we are ready to do our part.

Good environmental performance is fundamental for the success of our business and environmental aspects are managed as an integrated part of our business. We take our environmental responsibility seriously. In accordance with our environmental policy, we commit to become climate neutral, to protect nature and biodiversity and to use resources sustainably. Our foundation is a strong and responsible environmental culture, with high emphasis on environmental management on all levels of the company and certified management systems, which we have for almost 100% of our energy production and energy management sites. To concretise how we work to deliver on our policy commitments we have developed the Vattenfall "Environmental action plan 2030" that defines our ambitions and targets for our environmental work.
