Decarbonization tops our agenda 

Our energy production, commodity trading, and services — all are becoming steadily cleaner. Our ambitious decarbonization strategy will face challenges. For instance, we’ll need to develop and deploy low-carbon technologies fast enough for our generation business in Europe to be carbon-neutral by 2035. 

Our Planet - Sustainability

Living up to our social responsibilities  

We want our social performance to go above and beyond the law. This means upholding high ethical standards and putting them into practice — every day, in everything we do, and everywhere we conduct business. To name just one example, we aim to provide a safe and supportive work environment in which our people feel confident sharing their ideas and trying new approaches.  

People and society - Sustainability

Ensuring good corporate governance 

We want to realize our potential for sustainable business growth while systematically minimizing our operations’ main negative environmental, social and governance (ESG) impacts. 

Responsible Governance - Sustainability
UN sustainability goals

Supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an urgent call to action to all countries. For people, they seek to end poverty, improve health and education, and reduce inequality. For the planet, they seek to tackle climate change and preserve oceans and forests. We recognize the importance of all 17 SDGs and fully support them. We’ve prioritized 10 SDGs that are particularly relevant to our business activities, strategy, and material issues. 

We also invite you to read our Sustainability Report. 


Sustainability is one of Uniper’s most important topics. Our strategy and purpose – Empower Energy Evolution – are fully dedicated to it.
