Responsible water use and consistent waste management

Essential parts of our value chain – the mining of lignite and the generation of electricity at our sites – are often associated with considerable environmental impacts. Whether it’s nature or species conservation, waste management, preventing noise pollution or reducing particulate matter, RWE has honed its environmental protection policy over decades and it has become a fixed component of the company’s day-to-day business operations. This also includes the fact that we adopt new developments early on, which are also addressed by our stakeholders, among others. For example, we have taken a closer look at issues relating to biodiversity and water use, going far beyond the legal requirements.?
