Why Us?

Why the energy sector? And why us? We can think of lots of reasons.

For us, diversity means strength. The more E.ON represents the communities we serve, the more innovative we’ll be as a business. That’s why we have one of the most progressive diversity and inclusion policies in the UK – one which has won us many awards. With us, you can be sure you’ll be treated fairly, whatever your background or disability.

Make a difference to people’s lives

We’re proud to provide one of life’s essentials. But we also appreciate it costs money. That’s why we’re constantly developing new ways to make energy simpler. Through clearer bills and fewer tariffs, we’re making things more transparent for our customers. We’re also helping them cut their bills too – through free energy advice and innovations like SMART meters.

Protect the environment

We are right there tackling important energy issues. We’re looking at new sustainable sources. We’re creating new technology. And we’re backing up our words with real investment too. Since 2011, we have committed an impressive €3bn to the development of renewable energy and climate protection measures.
