Culture & Values

The "How" question

Our RWE values describe the core of our identity, also differentiating us from our peers and competitors. They provide stability and reliable guidelines for our behaviour and decisions.

Thus, living up to our corporate values is helping all employees in achieving our Future Picture and providing a frame of reference for our strategic decisions. They are what we stand for at RWE- they represent the behaviours we want to embrace - and they are the ideals with which we hope our customers, partners, suppliers and communities will identify us. Our values are the basis for RWE's success. Paying attention to them in everyday life helps us to succeed in the face of increasing competition.

They help us, all employees, to realise the purpose of RWE.

Our energy for a sustainable life.

Our values are the foundation


We believe that a passion for making a difference is the driving force behind our success, and we take pride in our enthusiasm and optimism for the future. We give ourselves the freedom to have the courage of our convictions, inspiring everyone who works with us to reach their full potential.

We value our customers and stakeholders. We treat them the way we want to be treated, with care and attention to detail, acting decisively to fulfil their needs, consistently meeting their expectations.

We inspire passion.


We create a company of which we can be proud, and that everyone can rely on, with certainty, day and night. We believe in transparency and act with integrity. Everything we say and do is open, honest and easy to understand.

We share our expertise and take responsibility for our actions. By acting in our customers’ and stakeholders’ best interests, we breed confidence and trust in ourselves and our company. We’re determined to do the right thing.

We build trust.


We benchmark our progress towards success in many ways, financially and non-financially, to ensure we operate to the highest standards and in a sustainable way. We want to meet everyone’s expectations consistently. To prove we’re reliable, we set challenging targets and work tirelessly to deliver on our promises and achieve our goals, time and time again.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity Officer RWE AG

"Diversity and an inclusive culture are key factors for RWE to be an attractive employer for the best talents worldwide. At RWE, our employees can be who they are and develop their full potential. Through different perspectives and personalities in diverse teams, we are strengthening a tolerant and respectful work culture at RWE, encouraging individual development and thus being able to develop the best solutions. Because we know: Diversity drives our success!"

Inclusivity is deeply rooted in our culture

We believe that diversity is fundamental to how we operate as a Group, and that in order to create and maintain a diverse workforce, inclusivity must be deeply rooted in all we do. We call our approach Inclusive Culture, because it is more than just diversity. In this regard, it is important to acknowledge that intersectionality (multiple discrimination) is a key element to managing diversity. Moreover we actively reflect on our privileges in order to handle them responsibly.

The Diversity Ambassador Program is an internal network for diversity enthusiasts who voluntarily raise awareness of diversity at RWE.

The ambassadors get involved in diversity in an uncomplicated way - for example at lunch with colleagues or in team discussions. There is also a self-study program to prepare colleagues for all diversity themes.

Together we turn passion into sustainability

We are reporting with the future firmly in our sights.
RWE is shaping the sustainable future of energy supply worldwide

RWE’s corporate strategy underpins our purpose statement “Our energy for a sustainable life”. And our goals are clearly defined: RWE will be climate neutral by 2040 and move the full phase-out of coal in Germany forward to 2030. However, our aspirations go far beyond protecting the climate. With a total of nine sustainability topics, RWE has been defining priority areas for action around all business activities since 2021. These include climate change, biodiversity, circular economy, diversity, and occupational health and safety. Targeted measures have been developed and are being implemented for each area for action. These measures are reassessed and evaluated in our Sustainability Reports. RWE’s sustainability strategy thus also determines the Group’s contribution to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We actively support achieving nine of the 17 SDGs.

Sustainability reporting

From environmental and climate protection, social matters and human rights to responsible corporate governance - RWE embraces its corporate responsibilities in many different ways, and we aim to report about them transparently. We want to explain how and why we make decisions and which measures we take.
