Vattenfall publishes its second report on Corporate Social Responsibility
For the second consecutive year, Vattenfall publishes its Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The CSR Report responds to society’s expectations on Vattenfall as a company in 2004 and places a special spotlight on issues in Vattenfall’s current CSR work – the development of renewable energy sources, the challenge of climate change and the link between human resources and research and development.
“It is our task and responsibility to contribute towards developing energy solutions that fit in with sustainable development in society. An energy system must contribute to a sustainable development in society not only from the environmental perspective, but also from the social and economical perspective. It must be able to meet today’s need for energy without jeopardising the ability for future generations to meet theirs” says Vattenfall’s President and CEO, Lars G Josefsson. The report is based on the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) guidelines that are the most widely used standard for sustainability reporting in the world. The report can be downloaded from Vattenfall’s Group website at www.vattenfall.com (select Responsibilities – CSR in Brief), where it is also possible to order printed copies of the report.
