We supply the society with energy reliably and responsibly - but we want more: We want to shape the energy of tomorrow. That's why we have set ourselves sustainability targets for 2025. This not only means 19% less CO2, using resources more efficiently and developing CO2-neutral energy sources - we will also use waste as a new raw material. With our ReOil innovation, we are turning plastic waste back into high-quality oil. This will enable us to recycle up to 50% of Austria's plastic waste and make it useful again.
