BKW pursues its business activities with a full awareness of its environmental, economic and social responsibilities. This mindset calls for a local presence and direct contact with the relevant stakeholders.

For many years, BKW has relied on partnerships and co-operations for the implementation of its business strategy. It fosters contacts with the local population and authorities in a spirit of transparency and dialogue. In Switzerland it involves local communities in the life of power plants and includes environmental organizations such as WWF and pronatura in project development.


In addition to its office in Berlin, BKW has a strong on-site presence at the various wind farm locations. It organizes a range of activities for local residents, such as wind farm festivals; it helps renovate children’s playgrounds, and it contributes towards local projects. BKW also pursues educational initiatives to promote an understanding and acceptance of the need for wind energy, thus creating a public awareness of energy-related matters.
