In recent years, EEX has progressed and developed (along with the industries in which it operates) and has made a decisive contribution to European energy trading. Ideas which were launched as niche products after the liberalisation of the power and gas markets have become the standard throughout Europe and even taken into account beyond Europe. The continued fulfilment of this goal is both our aim and our motivation. By now, we have developed a broad range of products and services and a network of customers and partners with whom we shape our environment.
As an exchange under public law operated by a private company, EEX is unique in energy trading. We act both as a mediator between different interest groups and as a competent contact for questions regarding the further development of the energy markets. Furthermore, in doing this, the fact that we also assume social responsibility is frequently recognised – for example, when EEX was made the central auction platform in European emissions trading. Work on such projects gives every employee the possibility to shape the future – even beyond our company. I joined EEX Group in 2008 and have had the possibility to contribute to this growth and to develop further through being given new tasks and a greater level of responsibility.
As a company, we always question our own development and actively try to find possibilities for improvement. With initiatives, such as CO2-neutral business trips, the sustainable use of natural resources in our day-to-day work and initiatives for our staff’s own personal development (even outside their job area) we, as a company, try to be a role model.
