Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Make the future inclusive

At Axpo Group, we are dedicated to fostering a culture of non-discrimination, tolerance, and inclusion. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) is an important part of our culture; we embrace diversity and strive to create conditions that provide everyone with an equal opportunity to thrive and perform.

DE&I at Axpo

DE&I at Axpo means clear and explicit commitment by the company and our employees to tolerance, inclusion, equal opportunities, freedom of choice and freedom of speech within the confines of the law and the company policies and values. This means creating an environment where every person regardless of race and ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, socioeconomic, cultural and religious background feels valued, respected, and empowered to contribute their best. 

At Axpo Group, we don’t want Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to be buzzwords; we continuously invest and work for DE&I to be fundamental principles that align with our values and guide us towards our purpose to enable a sustainable future by providing innovative energy solutions.

Axpo’s Code of Conduct sets out the core values of the company and its commitment to diversity and equal opportunities in the workplace. Gender equality is central to Axpo. To this end, it implements appropriate measures in the areas of recruitment, communication, talent management and succession planning. Our goal is to reach a representation of 30% woman across all hierarchy levels by 2030.

Axpo is convinced that greater diversity is ultimately achieved through inclusion. Accordingly, value is placed on an inclusive culture that is beneficial for employee retention, their commitment and productivity. The further development of the corporate culture is therefore also a key component of strategy implementation. Specific values were developed in 2022. They are intended, among other things, to specifically support diversity and inclusion in the company. Based on these values, a training concept has been developed that will be mandatory for all managers at Axpo from 2024.

At Axpo, we are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels valued and empowered. One of the ways we demonstrate this commitment is through our support for Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).

We believe that supporting ERGs is essential for several reasons:

ERGs offer a platform for employees to share their experiences, seek mentorship, and find support among colleagues who understand their unique challenges and perspectives.

By bringing together individuals from diverse backgrounds, ERGs foster collaboration and innovation, driving our collective success.

ERGs provide opportunities for leadership development, networking, and skill-building, helping members grow both personally and professionally. 

Supporting ERGs helps create a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all employees, which in turn boosts morale, engagement, and retention.
