Eneco wants to be a leader in the energy transition and, as a sustainable energy company, we want to give shape to the purpose: One Planet - living within the limits of the earth, together with our suppliers and customers. The social and societal components of energy transition are part of the pillar 'Society & Communities' within our One Planet plan.
Energy transition is a major social challenge. Renewable energy is often closer to our living environment than the large-scale production of fossil energy. This affects citizens, companies and other stakeholders in how they live, work and recreate because of the changes in their immediate environment. Therefore, we focus on building sustainable relationships where the energy transition takes place. Together, we will realise the energy transition. Governments, citizens and the business community are increasingly willing to do something about the climate problem. But there are also concerns and uncertainties. About the costs of energy transition and how to fit wind and solar projects into scarce space. About the health and environmental effects of sustainable energy sources. The implementation of our strategy is heavily dependent on public support. Eneco will take concerns or resistance of customers and local residents seriously and proactively involve them and let them participate in our sustainable energy projects. Our strategy must be in tune with the wellbeing of society.
Society & communities
One of the pillars of Eneco's One Planet plan is 'Society & communities'. This is the social domain of the plan, which includes the strategic themes that are important to us: community engagement, transparency, integrity and diversity & inclusiveness.
