Welcome to VNG
Joint statement by the Executive Board and the General Works Council: “Stop the war!”
We are living through a historic moment in Europe. The German government is speaking of a turning point. The previously unimaginable (for many of us) has become reality. The Russian army, under the leadership of the Russian government, has invaded Ukraine in breach of international law. We are profoundly alarmed by the Russian government's military action and strongly condemn the Russian war of aggression in the heart of Europe. Our thoughts, sympathy and solidarity are with the citizens of Ukraine who are courageously resisting the invasion of the Russian army and are now threatened with flight, exile and death. [..]
Fuelled by groundbreaking political decisions, the trend towards decarbonisation once again picked up speed in 2020. As a consequence, attention has increasingly focused on renewable energy sources and carbon-neutral gases in recent months. At the same time, there is widespread agreement that natural gas will be a major component of the German energy mix until 2030 and beyond.
