Sustainability management

Our sustainability management is anchored on various levels at MVV. The Executive Board bears overall strategic responsibility.

The sustainability department coordinates the sustainability strategy, reports to the Executive Board and relevant bodies and manages the group-wide sustainability programme. As well as sharing information across business fields, this department also plans and implements projects and measures. Moreover, the sustainability management function is responsible for major aspects of MVV’s stakeholder management.

The specialist departments continually review, evaluate and manage MVV’s performance based on sustainability indicators and medium-term targets. We evaluate investment projects by reference to sustainability criteria. The relevant measures are implemented on an operative level, also by the business fields acting under their own responsibility.

Sustainable corporate management

As part of society, we see ourselves as being obliged to adhere consistently to all requirements and laws applicable to MVV and to report transparently on the management and supervision of our company. We meet our responsibility to the public by ensuring high-quality compliance and corporate governance.

We have tackled the challenges presented by changing market needs with great determination for more than 150 years and are now actively shaping our future. Our cooperation and our interactions are supported by our “Lived Energy” corporate culture.

Our cultural values at our Mannheim location are:

  • Courage: We set out on dynamic new paths, see changes as an opportunity and seize the initiative for our future.
  • Responsibility: We have a forward-looking mindset and act accordingly, take quick decisions and build trust.
  • Appreciation: We openly share praise, are constructive in our criticism and treat one another with respect.
  • Community: We build on diversity, learn from each other and work together to reach our common goals.
