Our ecological responsibility is more important than ever. Because if we want to shape the energy trading of the future, we should ensure that there will be a future worth living in. For this reason, sustainability has a high priority for EEX Group. As part of our product portfolio, we operate a regulated market for emission allowances and also operate the common auction platform for the EU ETS, where regular auctions of emission allowances are held on behalf of 30 European countries. This is a key element in achieving European climate targets.
With our range of services relating to Guarantees of Origin for electricity from renewable energy sources, we actively support the energy transition. We operate and develop hedging instruments for the increasing generation of electricity from renewable energy sources.
We also attach great importance to sustainability within our offices. By providing organic and regional products, using green electricity, or offering job tickets for our employees for the use of public transport, we try to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible. In addition to that, we have been compensating the CO₂ emissions of our business trips since the beginning of 2018 to keep them carbon neutral. This way, we actively contribute to maintaining a clean and safe future.
Driving innovation - both internally and externally - is at the heart of EEX Group. EEX Group uses a group-wide Innovation Platform to connect ideas and employees globally across all time zones. We manage and drive innovation and cooperate with external parties in the start-up scene.
„Innovation is an essential part for the development of our organization. Our EEX Group innovation platform does not only emphasize entrepreneurship as one of our core values at EEX Group but it is also a place for connecting and driving new projects. The innovation platform creates a place for EEX Group colleagues to exchange knowledge and to develop new ideas.“
Tobias Paulun, CSO EEX
