One Planet Thinking will enable companies and financial institutions to align business practices so that they actively contribute to a healthy planet for future generations. One Planet Thinking outlines scientific based choices for managing business operations within the planet’s limits. Together we can make the transition.
As one of the founding partners of the programme, Eneco Group sits on its steering committee. In addition, we are active contributors to its community of practice, with our One Planet Plan. This allows us to share our knowledge and experience with other companies. Our ambition is to develop One Planet Thinking into a leading international programme, in which both the private sector and the academic community adopt its underlying tenets.
In the One Planet Plan, we challenge ourselves, our suppliers and our clients and customers to operate within the planet’s limits. This is not only necessary to preserve the environment, but also to guarantee our own wellbeing and that of future generations. And we hope to set a strong example with our mission: Everyone’s sustainable energy.
In this plan, we set out how we intend to reduce our impact on the planet. On the one hand, we will achieve this by investing in sustainable sources of energy like wind and solar farms. On the other hand, we will help our clients and customers to make their energy consumption more sustainable. Together we can make a difference. In the One Planet Plan, we distinguish between:
We are steadily raising the sustainability of our business operations. For example, the electricity we use in our own offices is generated by wind power and solar panels.
Every year, we invest many millions of euros in wind farms, solar farms and sustainable heat projects. And we are equally ambitious when it comes to mobility. Our vision in this area is based on public transport, electric vehicles and that quintessentially Dutch mode of transport: the bicycle.
We have teamed up with various parties that have also made a conscious decision to promote sustainability. This allows us to increase the supply of green energy and contribute to its local embedding and acceptance.
We work closely together with partners such as:
We take our biggest steps forward together with our clients and customers. Fortunately, more and more sustainable solutions are presently within the reach of consumers and businesses.
