Our responsibility as a company
We operate energy facilities in communities across Europe and Russia. We have a positive impact on these communities by hiring local people, buying from local suppliers, strengthening local infrastructure, protecting natural landscapes and habitats, and being actively involved in community life. The trust of these communities – and of our customers, our employees, and the general public – is essential for us to be able to do our job well.
Compliance, which consists of all measures aimed at ensuring that statutory provisions and internal company policies are abided by, is the foundation of mutual trust. With the introduction of a Compliance Management System we have taken significant measures to ensure compliant behavior of our all our managers and employees, at home and abroad, at any time.
Also, more particularly, our stakeholders' trust in our sustainability performance enables us to retain our license to build, operate, innovate, and grow in a world increasingly shaped by sustainability issues.
Compliance, which consists of all measures aimed at ensuring that statutory provisions and internal company policies are abided by, is a component of good corporate governance and for the Uniper SE board constitutes a central management responsibility.
