Application to Stedin and subtargets of the SDGs

Strategic spearhead

Energy is essential for almost all major challenges and opportunities in today's world.

Via our grids, we offer our customers renewable and non-renewable energy to live, work and do business (SDG 7.2). Jointly with our stakeholders, we work on innovations that are necessary for a future-proof grid, ensuring that it remains affordable and reliable (SDG 7.1).

Improved grid management

Our employees are the heart of our organisation. They ensure a reliable energy supply each and every day. We provide a safe working environment with plenty of opportunities for development.

Stedin is committed to ensuring equal opportunities, long-term employability and a workforce that reflects today's society. We promote an inclusive society – for instance, by offering young people with a disability and residence permit holders a trainee post (SDG 8.5). In executing our purchasing policy, we take our responsibility in the area of human rights, ethical conduct and employment rights. The safety of our employees and the local community is our top priority (SDG 8.8).
