We create conditions for realizing the Swedish Parliament's energy and climate policies. We work for sustainable and long-term solutions for Sweden's electricity supply based on economy, environment and social aspects.

Through our core assignments, we work to ensure access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy for everyone.

We influence society socially, environmentally and economically, both locally and nationally, but also globally through our supply chains.

Our sustainability work is based on maximizing our positive impact and minimizing the negative.

The Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030

The UN Sustainable Development Goals, which were agreed by world leaders in 2015, is a guide for us in our sustainability work.

Through our core assignments, we contribute in particular to four of the Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Goal 7 Affordable and Clean Energy
  • Goal 9 Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  • Goal 13 Climate Action
  • Goal 15 Life on Land

Sustainable Development Goals.

Our operations and our supply chains also affect a number of other goals and sub-goals in Agenda 2030, for example

  • Goal 7 Gender Equality
  • Goal 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • Goal 12 Responsible Consumption and Production
  • Goal 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
