Purpose, Mission & Values What drives Axpo

Since Axpo was first founded, we have been improving continuously for the benefit of our stakeholders – markets, customers and society. We live in an environment marked by change. It is more important than ever to be adaptable: customers are calling for smart solutions, climate change is demanding sustainability, and innovative technologies are challenging the status quo.

Our Purpose

We face these challenges head on each day – through the diversity and expertise of more than 6,000 employees, through close relationships with customers and partners (including across international borders) and through the use of the latest technologies. 

We enable a sustainable future by providing innovative energy solutions.


That is what drives us. That is our purpose.
