Eolus’ fundamental business concept is to create opportunities to invest in renewable energy for a sustainable future. Through our business concept, we promote the sustainable development goals and the transition to a fossil fuel-free energy system.
The starting point for our sustainability efforts is to leverage the opportunities that sustainable enterprise entails, and to minimize the potential negative effects of our operations. In Eolus’ operations, all aspects of sustainability are relevant and important, which is why we engage actively with the environment, social responsibility and corporate governance.
Environmental protection is natural for us and we work continuously to reduce our carbon footprint. We have a responsibility for how our operations impacts the environment and therefore the environment is an integral part of our operations.
Eolus aims to be a responsible company that contributes to social development and the achievement of the global emission reduction goals. We strive to maximize our positive impact and minimize the potentially negative effects of our activities at every stage.
Our sustainability work is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. We have identified that we can make a specific contribution to achieving four of the SDGs and some of their targets.
The Board of Eolus is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the company is managed in a sustainable and responsible manner. Eolus sustainability work is based on the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and is governed through our Code of Conduct and a number of policies.
Eolus has been reporting on sustainability since 2017/2018. We want our sustainability reports to be open and transparent, and we are therefore actively engaged in expanding our sustainability reporting. We are also evaluated by external sustainability ratings.
