Political statements

Energy, environment and climate affect us all every day. It is therefore important for Axpo to take a stand on current political issues. Our positions on the latest legislative changes can be found here:

Energy dialogue - the political debate

Climate change, decarbonisation and the associated energy issues represent a major global challenge. The decommissioning of fossil fuel and nuclear power plants is offset by a hesitant expansion of renewables and rising consumption. The issue affects us all. Because: If the secure supply of electricity is endangered, our lives come to a standstill. 

For Axpo there are no black-and-white answers to the open questions in energy and climate policy. Sustainable solutions can only be found together. This is why Axpo is committed to an energy dialogue without blinkers and is conducting it with politicians from all sides. Click here to go to our dialogue platform:
