With our strategy we build a cleaner world

Our vision is For a cleaner world. Our mission is to engage our customers and society to drive the change towards a cleaner world. Our role is to accelerate this change by reshaping the energy system, improving resource efficiency and providing smart solutions. This way we deliver excellent shareholder value.

Change where it matters – in an increasingly complex energy landscape

It is difficult to predict how power markets, technology and regulatory environment will develop – the future is more uncertain and development quicker than ever. At the same time, uncertainty can create new business opportunities for us. Decarbonisation is deeply embedded in our DNA, and in the future, there is an increasing need for low-CO2 energy as we need to replace fossil fuels in traffic, industry, heating and cooling. We see the 2020s becoming the decade of electricity.

Going forward, we must be smart in driving change where it matters most: Fighting climate change, continuously improving our operational excellence, ensuring value creation from the vast investments made and securing focused growth - both in our current operations and in new businesses.
