Support for interest groups and initiatives
EVN plays an important role in the functioning of public life through the operation of its infrastructure and wide-ranging services for customers. In order to fulfil these commitments as best as possible, EVN is an active member, on a voluntary or legally required basis, of numerous national and international organisations and interest groups, e.g. the Austrian electricity industry (Oesterreichs Energie), chamber institutions such as the Association of Gas- and District Heating Supply Companies, Eurelectric, EDSO etc.
Examples of EVN’s support for sustainability-based external initiatives include, among others, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, UN Global Compact, respACT – austrian business council for sustainable development and the Austrian Society for Environment and Technology (ÖGUT). All activities involved with these memberships take place in agreement with the rules of conduct defined by EVN’s compliance management system. In accordance with legal regulations, EVN is also listed in the Austrian lobbying and interest group register and the transparency register of the European Union.
