In March 2014, the Executive Board of RWE AG approved the RWE Inclusion Action Plan for the German Group companies and decided to implement it. With this plan, RWE is particularly promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities in all corporate activities. The agreed targets will continue to be implemented in the RWE Group companies without innogy SE. Their lasting effect is reflected in the constant employment rate of people with disabilities, the offer of internships for young people with disabilities and the sustainable barrier-free provision of workplaces for people who are impaired in their participation in the workplace. Our social and societal responsibility towards them is laid down throughout Europe in the Social Charter and the Charter of Diversity and is practically implemented through awareness-raising campaigns and targeted measures in personnel development, training, employment and health as well as appropriate workplace design and accessibility. The fact that inclusion takes place here is also co-designed and monitored by the employee representatives.
At RWE, people with and without disabilities work together as a matter of course. We actively support the training of disabled young people and offer internships for second level students with disabilities. Targets for including people with disabilities are also an integral element of our Code of Conduct, our target agreements and employee appraisals.
