Axpo today revealed a new look and feel for its brand identity, designed to express its strategic focus as a major national and international energy player in an industry undergoing fundamental change. For Axpo, Switzerland’s largest producer of renewable energy, an international energy trader and leader in the marketing of solar and wind power, the refreshed brand identity also reflects a readiness for tomorrow’s challenges.
Since its inception more than 100 years ago, the Axpo Group has been on a journey of change. A proactive approach, staying flexible and looking to the future will be more important than ever in achieving the company’s ambitions. This holds especially true in an industry that must increasingly adapt to disruptive innovation, changing customer needs and rising climate consciousness.
To help make these changes visible to the outside world, Axpo’s brand identity has been revamped for the first time in more than 20 years. Reflecting its outlook and values of sustainability, innovation and reliability, the new look illustrates Axpo’s purpose - to provide innovative energy solutions that are empowering a sustainable future.
Commenting on Axpo’s new look, Axpo CEO Christoph Brand said: "The changes in the market, amongst our customers and on the job market – ultimately in the entire energy sector – are occurring more quickly and intensely than ever before. So, we must also become faster, more flexible and proactive. Today, we are no longer the Axpo of 20 years ago. We want to demonstrate this with our new brand identity."
The new look and feel includes a dynamic logo, fresh colours and compelling imagery. The new "x" in the logo is particularly striking, symbolising flowing energy while, the distinctive form reflects our stability and long-standing experience.
The new brand identity is a further expression of Axpo’s corporate strategy focused on three pillars:
Axpo is driven by a single purpose – to enable a sustainable future through innovative energy solutions.
