Ellevio launched a new framework for green financing in May 2023 to promote investments that contribute to the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The framework is adapted to the EU taxonomy and has obtained a second party opinion from ISS ESG.
Ellevio's response to society's need for a modern and expanded energy system includes large investments to modernise, digitalise, weather-proof, increase capacity and further develop the networks, as well as enabling the connection of new fossil-free sources of energy. Other initiatives involve installing the second-generation of smart electricity meter, enabling charging infrastructure and developing solutions for flexibility, energy efficiency and optimisation.
