Diversity and inclusion

At Vattenfall we build on the fact that diverse teams can outperform homogeneous teams. But we can only unleash and leverage the power of diversity, if we make everybody feel included.

Different people with different perspectives on things create the conditions for doing better business. It means seeking for different approaches to the issues we need to tackle, properly representing the world around us and having a large selection of candidates when we need to recruit. All in all, we believe it leads to a more tolerant climate in our workplaces and a more enjoyable way of working.

What diversity and inclusion mean to us


Who we are …

We are all individuals. We differ in gender identity, sexual orientation, education, age, cultural heritage, ethnicity, experience, family status, beliefs, religion and perspectives.


... and how we behave

is about feeling valued and able to contribute. Inclusion is when everyone feels part of the team.

Two sides of the same coin. Diversity is about ensuring we are different. Inclusion is when we make the most of those differences.

Since 2015 Diversity and inclusion is firmly established in our strategy and all members of Vattenfall's Executive Group Management actively support our D&I vision and strategy and show their commitment in different ways.

'Diversity means a more enjoyable way of working.'
